Eagle & Girl Scout Projects

Girl Scouts, Daisies, and Brownies

Working on a 3 Cheers for Animals or pets badge? HSPPR holds programs twice a year to help your troop complete some of the requirements to earn these badges! In this unique program, your troop will “adopt” one of our stuffed animal furry friends and learn about the needs and costs of owning a pet as we tour through the shelter. At the end, each Girl Scout receives a custom HSPPR fun patch! If your troop completes pre- and post-tour activities, they'll easily earn either scout badge.

Cost: $10/Scout

Eagle Scouts

HSPPR offers two Eagle Scouts projects supporting our very own Community Cats Program. These projects benefit local feral cats in Colorado Springs by providing them with a warm shelter or a safe enclosed place to eat. Typically, coordinating a group to help you construct 7-8 shelters or 10-20 feeding perches meets the requirements for an Eagle Scout project to display leadership skills, as well as direclty impact the Colorado Springs community. Due to varying weather conditions in Colorado, we request feeding perches be fully enclosed on three sides.

Please note this is an addition to the original instructions and not included in the above link. Plywood used to enclose the perch on three sides is sufficient to protect from the elements.
