Girl Scout Troop 1468 dedicates its efforts to saving animals

Hailey Kincer decorates a barrel to be used for donations to help White County Animal Shelter. Hailey and other White County Girl Scouts have been working on numerous projects to raise awareness about the shelter, as well as gathering much needed items for the dogs that are housed at the facility.

When asked what led them to decide on helping the White County Animal Shelter, according to Troop Leader Amy Kincer, the members of Girl Scout Troop 1468 agreed that they wanted to spend time making their community a better place. At that point, Shelby Holt, a Girl Scout Cadette, suggested helping the animal shelter. The members of the troop voted and decided that the shelter and the animals needed their help the most. Thus started the journey and the relationship with Friends of White County Animals and the White County Animal Shelter. They decided to decorate donation barrels that would be displayed in various local businesses for collection of much needed supplies to be used at the shelter.
The troop has been working on the highest awards a Scout can earn at their age level. The Juniors are working toward their Bronze Award while the Cadettes are completing the necessary steps in order to achieve their Silver Award. To complete these requirements, the girls had to decide and plan on a project that will benefit the community as a whole and their love of animals made the decision easy. They have used their budgeting and couponing skills when shopping to get food and supplies to donate to the shelter. The troop has also made a table cover which the FWCA will use at their events.
When the girls of Troop 1468 tell about their experiences with animals in their lives, some will even admit that they had some fear of the dogs at the shelter at the beginning but as they learned more about the dogs and started working with them they overcame their fear and soon were having a great time socializing and playing with the animals. Members have rescued homeless animals and found homes for those whose owners could no longer care for them. Jada and Hailey Kincer rescued a cat and her kittens and found homes for all but one that they kept as their own. They also have their dog Milo who could no longer be cared for by a previous owner. Milo has appeared in the Christmas parade with the Girl Scouts dressed as an elf. Cassie Meadows has taken stray dogs and cats into her home. Hunter Koehler took in pets of elderly relatives when their owners could no longer care for them. Raven Leftwich has many dogs the family has rescued as strays. Zoey Layne has rescued a dog when its young master passed away but it doesn’t stop there. She also took in two cats her aunt could not keep, took a dog that someone had dumped and found a home for the dog at her blind grandfather’s home as well as homing a bearded dragon that her mother’s friend no longer wanted. This is where the awareness begins for these young ladies who are showing compassion towards the animals and striving to help improve the lives of those animals that have unfortunately ended up at the shelter.
When asked how they would improve how animals are cared for in our community they collectively agree that they would love for all the animals to find homes and people that love them. They want to educate people about choosing pets and not dumping them after “the new” wears off. As stated by Ms. Kincer, “They want the people of White County to know that these animals deserve love too, even if they are a mixed breed or a little wild and crazy, they just need time, attention and love.” She quoted the girls as saying, “You wouldn’t throw out your brother or sister when you got tired of them would you?”
Amy says that the first day the girls spent at the shelter she expected them to start gagging and whining about cleaning kennels, food and water bowls but she says that every girl jumped right in to clean as well as replacing bedding. In fact, Ms. Kincer exclaims that “the girls talk to everyone about working at the shelter and the fun they have had even if it was really hard work. They have learned to love something because they choose to make a difference. We can’t wait to see what’s next!”
The Animal Shelter donation barrels that were decorated by the troop can be found at Savage Building Center, Walmart, and Kroger. The supplies needed include: canned and dry dog and cat food, dry puppy and kitten food, AA batteries, paper towels, bedding (not polyfil), sheets and towels (gently used is fine), rubber backed bath rugs, hand sanitizer, antibacterial hand soap, cat and dog toys, laundry detergent, bleach, leashes and collars, prepaid gas cards for transports (used for rescues/adoption transport, vetting, spay/neuter clinic appointments). An updated supplies list can be found on the FWCA website: www.friendsofwhitecountyanimals.com. Thank you to those who have been so generous and already given donations by using the barrels. Those items have been delivered to the shelter and are very much appreciated.
If any girls are interested in joining Girl Scouts, new troops are being formed now for girls in grades K-12.  Leaders are needed for the troops.  Contact Amy Kincer at 931-837-3090 or go to wcgirlscouts@yahoo.com for more information.
Come visit us at the FWCA booth on South Main Street during the October 6 Liberty Square Celebration where the Girl Scouts will be face painting from 10 to 2 for donations to the shelter. We will also have available an “Ask the Trainer” booth where FWCA trainer, Chris Hohn, will answer basic dog training questions. Come early to see Sharon Langford, White County native and local author of “Living With the Rescues, Life Lessons and Inspirations” at which time you may purchase a personally autographed book and speak with her about the lessons she has learned from a lifetime of rescuing and caring for homeless and injured dogs.
FWCA will also have a booth during the Million Dollar Mile Yard Sale. Any donations (no clothing please) will be much appreciated and money earned from the yard sale will go back to the shelter animals for their many needs. Call the number below or email for more information.
If you would like to become a friend of FWCA, help by donating or by volunteering at FWCA events or at the White County Animal Shelter, please contact FWCA at 931-836-8440 or email whitecountyanimals@live.com. Please do your part to control White County’s animal population by having your pet spayed or neutered.
