Hometown Heroes: Tarrant County Girl Scouts

 In Southlake, Girl Scout Troop 4005 loved helping in animal shelters last year.  This year the girls are working on earning their Bronze Award and they decided to sew adoption vests to help dogs get  4-Ever homes.

Lots of the girls had to learn how to use a sewing machine.  It was scarey but they learned the skill and gained new confidence.  Many girls are now working on sewing clothes and other items.

The cloth adoption vests they made are lime green or orange.  They wrap around a dog's back with fasterners and attach to a leash. A card on top of the vest has the name of the dog and the other sde of the card has info about  the dog.

The Humane Society of North Texas is thrilled.  The adoption vests really help the dogs stand out and are a great introduction. The vests are washable and once a dog is adopted, it can he used to help get another dog a new home.

The 2nd annual Dogs and Cars adoption event takes place Saturday, April 9th at Southlake Forest Park Hospital in the parking lot from 10am-1pm.  The dogs will wear the vests made by Troop 4005.  These Tarrant County Girl Scouts are part of the Texas Oklahoma Plains chapter and they are happy to help their 4-legged friends.  If you can't wait until April 9th and  want to adopt now...call the Humane Society of North Texas at 817.332.4768
