Hip hip hooray for scouts!

 

Our community ROCKS! Earlier this summer Myerstown Cub Scout Pack 460 visited our shelter! The scouts and staff held a Q&A on the basic care of animals/pets. The scouts had a lot of great questions and were very well behaved! Good job boys! Nutty (who has since been adopted) loved greeting the group!

If you are a part of a small group in the community and would like more info on coordinating a donation drive for our shelter or arranging a visit, please connect with Sharon Riegel at sriegel@lebanonhumane.org
