VIDEO: Girl Scouts Prompt Donation of Rattlesnake Vaccine for K-9s

Girl Scout Troop 3434 wanted to donate part of its cookie sale proceeds to buying rattlesnake vaccine for Sheriff’s Department K-9s.

When the troop approached the clinic that provides the dogs’ veterinary care, the clinic shared the story with a drug company, which then donated 25 doses. The clinic added six more.

With the vaccinations covered, the troop bought training reward toys for the K-9s.
