Local Girl Scout Troop Joins the Effort to Find Homes for Deserving Pets

A local Girl Scout troop has partnered with the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter to find a permanent, loving home for Noah, a 2-year old lab/pitbull mix.

Girl Scout Troop 1343 has joined the Homeless Pet Club community and is working locally with the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter to bring awareness to the issues of homeless pets in our community.

Troop 1343 has 16 members representing Alcova Elementary, Harbins Elementary, Dacula Elementary, and Dacula Middle schools in Dacula, and Berkeley Lake Elementary in Duluth. All 16 girls have been working non-stop to find their sponsored pet, Noah, a loving home.

Noah is an energetic, 2-year old black and white lab/pitbull mix who is great with children, loves to play ball and sit in your lap. Noah would be a great addition to any loving family.

The girls of Troop 1343 believe by working together as a community we can find loving homes for all animals who are often displaced, abandoned and sometimes destroyed due to circumstances not within their control. Troop 1343 has visited with Noah, played ball with him, decorated his pen (Pen #155) at the shelter, and made him chew toys and a personalized bandana.

In addition to working to find a home for Noah, Troop 1343 is planning to host several donation drives throughout Dacula to benefit all of the animals in the shelter. The shelter is currently in need of blankets, dog beds, and wet cat and dog food. Please visit the troop’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/troop1343 to learn of upcoming donation locations and to see more pictures of Noah!
