We’d like to extend a huge “Thanks!” to the inspiring young members of New York City’s Girl Scouts Brownie Troop 3444, who donated a portion of the troop’s cookie sales proceeds to the ASPCA!
Troop 3444’s members are in third grade at The Chapin School on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The girls wanted to help abused and abandoned animals recover and find loving homes, so they earmarked a portion of the funds they raised by selling 4,000 boxes of cookies for the ASPCA. One Troop 3444 Brownie, Holly Rosen, sold 750 boxes of cookies! Fellow Brownie Ella Clifford sold an impressive 355 boxes.
We were pleased to welcome the Troop’s members to the ASPCA Adoption Center, where they proudly presented their donation. This group of girls’ dedication to animal welfare is truly an inspiration. On behalf of animals in need nationwide, thanks, Troop 3444!
A group of preschoolers from New York City’s Resurrection Episcopal Day School recently spent some quality time with dogs and cats of all shapes and sizes during a tour of the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan.
The students toured the Adoption Center, led by ASPCA Volunteer Coordinator Beverly Pietrucha, where they met and observed plenty of adorable adoptable puppies, adult dogs, kittens and adult cats. ASPCA veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Lander demonstrated a basic health exam on a super-friendly therapy dog named Britney Spears.
For the tour’s grand finale, Dr. Lander brought in three six-week-old kittens for the students to interact with. It’s safe to say these young animal lovers learned a great deal about caring for animals and had a blast in the process!
