Girl Scout Troop #60106 donated 40 cat boxes Nov. 22 to the Carroll County Animal Protection League for cats to seek shelter this winter.
Girl Scouts Cara Cook, Alaina Moore, Addilyn Yingling and Kada Manbeck each made several boxes and are striving for their silver award offering up to 50 hours of community service. Their scout leader is Corinna Cook.
Each cat box has insulated boards inside with small dishes and treats inside.
“We are so thankful for these boxes,” said CCAPL President Eileen Rohrer. “You have to use straw or hay for the boxes because blankets can get wet and freeze.”
Each box is 23 inches long, 17 ½ inches wide and 30 7/8 inches high.
Cat boxes were given out first come, first served at the CCAPL headquarters on Dec. 2 and 3 and leftovers will be handed out at the shelter on Dec. 9 and Dec. 10, noon-1 p.m.
