AKRON, N.Y. (WIVB) - An Akron Girl Scout Troop is hosting a puppy filled event Sunday for some cuddly canines.
A "puppy shower" will be held this afternoon featuring 11 puppies from Open Arms Rescue of WNY by the Junior Girl Scouts Troop 30865.
Opens Arms is a non-profit, volunteer organization that saves local animals as well as dogs from out-of-state shelters.
The event is part of receiving the Bronze Award which is the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can achieve. Together, they have been working for two years, including each girl donating 20 hours of service, to win the award.
Due to a major donation collection, over 400 items will be brought to the shower. Akron Elementary School, a Dollar General in Akron, and the Newstead Public library were among those who donated to the girls.
Featured at the event will be dog bone shaped sandwiches, snacks served in dog bowls, fun games and entertainment, and puppies.
A woman who has been a Girl Scout for more than 50-years will also be honored.
The event is from 2-4 p.m. at the Akron Free Methodist Church.
