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!!

The month of February marks Max’s first birthday!! He is such a beautiful boy and so content here with Mia.

And, Max is also the ONLY animal here at CARE without an honorary adoptive parent. What would make a better birthday gift for him than to contribute to his care every month?

If you are interested in adopting Max, please visit the Adopt or Sponsor page on our website at!
