Girl Scouts use cookie money to buy vaccines for K-9 unit


What do rattlesnakes and Girl Scout Cookies have in common? Nothing . . . unless you consider how one amazing Troop from San Diego used a portion of their cookie sale earnings to help local K-9 units bitten by rattlesnakes!

Members of the Brownie Troop 3434 in San Diego donated part of their cookie sale money to fund hundreds of dollars’ worth of rattlesnake vaccines for the dogs, KSWB reported.

These brave dogs help police face danger every day, and often have to search in difficult and hard to reach places, including areas where they are prone to get bitten by venomous snakes.  

Troop 3434 raised enough cash to donate $900 worth of anti-venom and decided to spend $350 on training tools for the K-9s. Win/Win!
