Nashville Girl Scouts fund microchip scanners for lost pets (includes video story)

Samoas and Thin Mints are taking a back seat this season for a Girl Scout troop from Williamson County, near Nashville. Driven by their love for animals, the troop donated cookie sale earnings to fund the installation of pet microchip scanners at a local library. The technology helps reunite lost furry friends with their owners.

Their empathy and hard work have been recognized across the community as they strive to live out the Girl Scout mission of courage, confidence and character. The initiative is made possible with approval and support from the Williamson County Board of Commissioners

“Selling cookies is, of course, really fun, but it feels really great knowing we helped a lot of lost animals,” said Ainslee Wright, one of the Girl Scout members.
