PROSPERITY — Wightman Girl Scout Troop #1270, recently partnered with Newberry Animal Control. The Girl Scout Juniors and Cadettes worked on identifying a need in their community. They researched various animal care needs and felt their troop could benefit from animal awareness and safety tips.

Animal control officer, Haley Gantt, attended a troop meeting and educated the Girl Scouts on pet care, safety tips when encountering stray animals and how they could help animals in their community.

The girls also held a donation drive for various pet and cleaning supplies.
