Girl Scout Troop 11827 and the Jackson County Homeschoolers donated the supplies, time and work to make 50 goody bags for future adopters of pets from Barrow County Animal Control.

The volunteers, numbering around 35 total, assembled the bags at BCAC on Wednesday, filling them with treats, toys, informational pamphlets and DVDs, leashes, collars and other supplies to make adopting a pet from BCAC easier.

The bags themselves were donated by KONG with a few additional goodies inside, and Leftover Pets also donated some of the supplies for the treat bags, said BCAC volunteer Jeannie Miller.

Girl Scout Troop Leader Wendy Koonce said Troop 11827 was there working toward their Bronze Award. The troop consists of Ashtyon Gass, Katie Koonce, Maryann Northcutt, Skylar Paulene and Katelin Woody. Woody made dog treats with her mother.

One of the girls with the troop, Megan Lumley, was from a sister troop—Troop 11840—and was working toward her Silver Award.

Lumley made rope chew toys for the goody bags.

"Anything that encourages pet adoption is what we’re all about here at Barrow County Animal Control," Miller said.
