Brownies from troops 879, 893 and 973 donated toys to the cats and dogs at the Ellis County SPCA as part of a community service project.

Following directions from Operation Happy Sock (, the girls filled socks with catnip and polyester fiberfill and gave each cat in the SPCA’s cat room a “happy sock.”

The girls also braided pieces of fleece to create chew toys for the dogs, with each dog and several puppies receiving a chew toy.
