Verysupercool had a visit from some of the cadettes from Girl Scout Troop #1895 yesterday. I explained how printing on 100% post consumer recycled paper is just the beginning of being a green and sustainable company. They learned that we partner with Co-op America, Carbonfund.org and Trees for the Future to make the world a better place. Investing in renewable energy and planting trees are two ways that every company can be more green.
Since we are Central Texas Dachshund Rescue volunteers, I explained how being a foster family is an important, fun, and very rewarding job. These little guys need to have a safe place to be evaluated before they can be adopted. Most of the time we don’t know much about the dog’s history, but it’s almost always a sure bet that they haven’t had the love or attention they deserve and crave. And there isn’t a better feeling in the world than getting to “love on” a little dog who’s been neglected or abused. They just want to feel safe. Fostering is great way to get involved with your local rescue because you get to have so many great dogs in your life, and ALL their medical expenses are paid for!
The girls were also kind enough to assist me with a photo session while they were here. We had Captain, our current foster dog who is looking for his forever family, in the Verysupercool studio and he loved all the attention. Katie, Danielle and Sara found out some of the behind the scenes tricks we use to get the dogs to looks at the camera. See Captain’s profile to see some of the shots, I couldn’t have done it without them. Girl Scouts are Verysupercool!
