One local girl scout troop is one step closer to earning their bronze award, by helping some furry friends along the way.

The troop heard a cry from the Chattanooga Humane Society saying that they needed funds to continue to feed and care for their animals

One of their leaders says they started working with the organization this past summer and they've been collecting money off and on for about a year.

The girl scouts have invested six years of their lives to abide by the girl scout promise and law.
