NEWS-LEDGER — JAN 8, 2014 –

A West Sacramento Girl Scout troop has tried to make a difference in the lives of about 150 dogs awaiting adoption.

Members of the Scouts’ “Riverbank” unit joined those from other troops at a birthday party in honor of the birthday of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts.  The West Sacramento scouts collected treats, toys and blankets for needy animals.

At the party – held Nov. 1 at Westmore Oaks Elementary School, the scouts presented their donations to a representative of Kritter Kamp for Elk Grove. A few days later, the girls visited the dog shelter to play with and walk some of the dogs.

“I am going to volunteer to come here and help the animals once I can drive,” said 10-year old scout Alexa.

The Riverbank unit in West Sacramento now has almost 20 girls.
