At the Metro Animal Shelter, there are more than 7,500 cats and dogs a year waiting for a home but only 40 a month are adopted. Most of the animals that come to the shelter have been abandoned, neglected, abused or surrendered. This is the case for many animals in shelters like Metro Animal Shelter. Troop 108 urges Girl Scout troops and others alike to get involved with local animal shelters to help improve animals' lives throughout their communities.
Troop 108 wants to encourage other Girl Scout troops to help at their local animal shelters and to adopt animals from a shelter instead of buying one from a store.
