Girl Scout Troop 461 of Sarasota enthusiastically collected cat food for Cat Depot for their troop service project. The animal-loving girls collected cans of cat food by holding up “Give a Cat a Can” and other eye-catching signs during the morning student drop-off at their school. In total, Troop 461 collected 200 cans of cat food – an entire wagon full! Their service project culminated with a special visit to Cat Depot to deliver the canned cat food and to visit with the cats and kittens.
Thank you, Girl Scout Troop 461 for completing a successful service project and for supporting the kitties!
Girl Scout Troop 629 visited Cat Depot on Thursday, April 11, 2013. The enthusiastic group of eleven year-old scouts met in our Education Center to first learn about the history and mission of Cat Depot before making cat toys using colorful fleece strips. During the tour of our facility, the girls were able to personally distribute their homemade cat toys to the curious and deserving cats.
Thank you Girl Scout Troop 629 for your support!
