Really Florida? The guy abandoned his dogs to die of hunger and thirst and it took you this long to figure out he probably isn't the best ambassador for greyhound
Well, like we said, traveling today so we're going to share a far different story with you which we like to call The Kids Are All Right:
Whiz Kid's Names, Ages: Junior Girl Scout Troop #30554And here they are:
Whiz Kid's School: 5th graders at Mill Pond School
Whiz Kid's Accomplishments: As part of the Bronze Award Community Service Project, Westborough Girl Scout Troop 30554 is holding a donation drive for Greyhound Friends, Inc. Founded in 1983, Greyhound Friends in Hopkinton is one of the oldest and largest greyhound rescue and adoption organizations in the US. It has placed 10,000 retired racing greyhounds in loving homes.
After visiting the dogs, the girls decided to collect donations of old blankets, old comforters, dog food, dog toys, and basic cleaning supplies (bleach, pine sol, liquid soap, and paper towels) to give to the shelter. They decorated a pet donation box and placed it at the top of the stairs in the Westborough Public Library. Donations can be dropped there, or contact Troop Leader Marcy Lippold at 508-616-9691 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for pick-up of donations.
Whiz Kid's Key to Awesomeness: The girls saw that the dogs needed supplies and care, and they created a way to help. Their Greyhound Rescue Donation Drive will run throughout the month of March.
