To highlight and express appreciation for the Girl Scouts creed of community service, LifeLine Animal Project, a non-profit located in Avondale Estates, is waiving the standard $80-$120 pet adoption fees for Scouts, their families and alumnae throughout the month of March.
“We are pleased to note that March marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Girl Scouts by Georgia native Juliette Gordon Low,” says LifeLine board chair Blythe Randolph, “LifeLine honors the vision and community activism inherent to Scouting by making this offer, and I hope current Girl Scouts, former Girl Scouts, and their families will take advantage of it.”
LifeLine has teamed with local Girl Scout and Brownie troops several times in the last decade and metro area Scouts have held donation drives to help homeless dogs and cats at LifeLine.
Recently, local Junior Troop 28440 in Decatur invited members of LifeLine staff to a meeting to discuss animal rescue and ways to help homeless pets.
The Junior Troop will hold awareness events and will collect items for dogs and cat in need on Sunday, March 18, at dog parks in Oakhurst and Decatur.
The girls in the troop even got a visit from Mitzi, a homeless pit bull who lives in LifeLine's no-kill Dog House.
Mitzi proved very popular with the Scouts and their families and she enjoyed getting a great deal of attention -- and a fair amount of treats- from the girls.
Shelter dogs from LifeLine’s Dog House and cats and kittens from their Kitty Motel are all included in the March offer for Girl Scouts. Potential adopters must meet LifeLine’s standard criteria for adopting a pet, however all adoption fees are waived for Scouts, troop leaders and those with past and present associations with the Girl Scout organization.
LifeLine's Dog House and Kitty Motel staff are happy to work with families to find the perfect pet for their household and are willing to set up "meet and greets" with pets they are interested in or find on LifeLine's adoptable pet database.
All rescued pets are current on their vaccinations and have been spayed or neutered and micro chipped. Many dogs who have been at the shelter for any length of time have received some basic obedience training.
