Brookwood Forest Brownie Troop has Gone to the Dogs

The girls of Brownie Troop 31 in Mountain Brook recently visited the Greater Birmingham Humane Society. Education Director, Cathy Stewart, talked to the girls about the importance of humane treatment of animals. The troop also enjoyed a guided tour of the facility complete with friendly dogs and cute kittens.

After the program, Troop 31 presented GBHS Executive Director, Jacque Meyer with a check for $1200 to fund programs and help animals in Alabama. The donation was the result of the Brownie Scouts hard-work and dedication to sell as many Girl Scout cookies as possible. The girls volunteered to dedicate their earnings to the Greater Birmingham Humane Society. Troop 31 members are proud to take action in making their community a better place for people and their four-legged friends.
