Brownie Troop Provides Some Shade

Brownie Troop 1505, a troop that meets in Euless, TX, contacted us at the beginning of the year with an idea. The girls in the troop, all 3rd graders, and their leader Sherri wanted to donate a few trees to the CARE facility!

Those that have followed us for a while, and anyone that has visited, knows that we constantly struggle with shade for the cats and for our volunteers and visitors. Trees are a little scarce around the CARE compound! When we got the email from Sherri about the idea, we were ecstatic!

The girls in the troop purchased the trees with the money that they raised from selling cookies. By having trees planted at CARE, the girls could fulfill their Take Action Project for the Quest for the Keys Brownie Journey requirement. At the same time, they could learn that even at their young age, they could make a difference!

So, after doing some research on what type of tree would do best out here at the center (it takes a tough tree to make it around here) the troop contacted All Wise Garden Center in Bridgeport to order three trees and have them planted. The folks at All Wise came out to plant our new trees at the end of February and did a fantastic job. Our new trees has homes right in between Tabula and Chompers; between Zeus, Jezzebel, and Elley and Serena; and the last between Serena and Sydney & Rasa.



Later this week the Troop plans to come out to dedicate the tree and see first hand the cats that will get some extra shade once the trees grow tall! Thank you so much Troop 1505!!

In honor of Thanksgiving, we are reflecting on how much we are all thankful for at CARE. More than anything, we are thankful for YOU.

What CARE has been able to accomplish this year is incredible and it was because your amazing support and generosity. We work hard to care for each and every animal here, and it is a difficult job, but know that it would not be possible if we didn't have you. You are making a difference in each animals' life here. You will always have our gratitude.

We hope you all the best today and everyday. Thank you for being a part of CARE!
