A Charlottesville-area Girl Scout troop is helping out some four-legged friends.

Daisy Girl Scout Troop 875 visited the Charlottesville SPCA Tuesday afternoon.

The girls learned all about the SPCA and even helped walk some dogs. They also presented the SPCA with a $100 check.

The money comes from proceeds of their Girl Scout cookie sale.

"We decided as a troop that we should donate 10 percent of our profits from that sale back to our local community. So the girls brainstormed a bunch of local organizations that they were interested in donating to, we had a vote and they chose the SPCA," said troop leader Lisa Colton.

The troop hopes to make the donation an annual tradition.
