Scout’s project helps cats

December 16, 2012 

Katherine Hartley of Raleigh has earned the Silver Award, the second-highest achievement in Girl Scouting.

For her Silver project, Katherine developed an educational pamphlet about trap-neuter-return, or TNR, a method of controlling feral cat population that avoids euthanization. Katherine worked with the SPCA of Wake County and Paw Prints Animal Rescue, both of which will continue to provide the pamphlet to the community.

Katherine, the daughter of Steven and Melissa Hartley, attends Sanderson High School and is a member of Troop 1069, led by Sarah Jessup.
