Lawrence School Girl Scout Troop 6674, under the leadership of Outreach Supervisor Maureen Gibson, recently completed an advertising campaign promoting the Lodi Animal Shelter Dog Adoption event at Lowe's on May 5th.

With the help of assistant Ashleigh Allen, the girls designed and created large colorful posters which were displayed at Lawrence school and also at Lowes on the day of the adoption event. On May 5th, shelter staff members and PALS volunteers displayed a variety of adoptable dogs at the Lowe's parking lot, and it is reported that 10 dogs were adopted that weekend because of the outreach program.

Lodi Animal Services Supervisor Jennifer Bender and PALS volunteer Janet Bange attended two of the scout meetings at Lawrence School with the girls were working on their community service project. The girls learned about the dog adoption process and also about how to properly care fo dogs and cats. They were encouraged to talk to friends and family members about the things they had learned about responsible pet ownership, adopting the right pet, and the ways people can help the homeless dogs and cats in the Lodi area.

At the meeting, each girl received a PALS bookmark, and a color/activity book about being safe around dogs. There's books were donated by Bobbie Cash's State Farm agency in Lodi. In addition, each girl "adopted" a PALS toy dog as a token of appreciation for their efforts in helping homeless dogs find their new forever homes.
