Most people are familiar with beer or wine-pairings, but this Saturday March 11, Helen Woodard Animal Center and Girl Scout Troop #4204 have cooked up an original pairing event sure to get sweet-toothed folks and animal-lovers alike excited.

As the last official weekend of Girl Scout cookie sales, individuals are encouraged to hurry down to pick up two of the most delectable treats imaginable – cookies and a critter, paired perfectly for each and every taste. Girl Scout Troop #4204 will be at Helen Woodward Animal Center cheering on adoptions and closing out the cookie-selling season with a bang, and woof, and a meow from 11:30-2pm on Saturday, March 11th.  All adopters receive a free box of cookies to match with their new sweetie.

Whenever we talk about community service it’s all about helping the less fortunate and animals, so this fits right into our troop mission,” says Leader Lori Burchell. “Our girls will learn to be advocates for animals through using their skills and their voices to make a difference for orphan pets. Having some furry “junior sales assistants” at the event is definitely a bonus!

Pairings include (but are not limited to) the following:

3 month-old, miniature poodle-blend, female Coco is an ideal pairing with a box of peanut buttery Tagalongs – Vanilla in color with a thin nutty-layer of puppy energy and the sweetness of chocolate makes them a perfect match!

21 month-old, Shepherd-Lab-blend, tripod Frosty is a great match-up with a box of lemony Savannah Smiles – Her thick coat is prepped for the cool flavor of lemon and the cookies’ refreshingly tangy frosting mirrors her adventurous personality.

2 year-old, domestic shorthaired feline Tapioca was born to snuggle up next to a box of Samoas. Her cream, brown and tan markings are an exact match to the caramel, toasted coconut, chocolate-striped treats and her deep purrs are just as rich.
