Troop 61 collects funds and supplies for PAWS

The members of Boy Scout Troop 61 from Dover-Foxcroft have been working on a service project for the Citizenship in the Community merit badge. The requirements ask that the scout do a service project totaling eight hours.

The boys decided to collect donations for the Penquis Animal Welfare Shelter, a no-kill shelter for cats located in Milo. The boys set up a table at the Shaw’s location in Dover-Foxcroft over the last two Saturdays in March. Patrons of the grocery store were asked to either donate money or supplies to the shelter, which many were happy to do. The work yielded a total of $1,133.53 and a couple shopping carts full of food and cleaning supplies for the shelter.
