For her Girl Scout Silver Award project, Audrey fostered a puppy through Carolina Canines for Service. She was responsible for the puppy's care and training for service to a physically disabled person. The puppy stayed with Audrey until she entered advanced task training for a specific disability/person.

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a girl can earn as a Cadette Girl Scout. This award recognizes the efforts of girls who are in grades 6-9, or are ages 11-14, in a range of Girl Scout and community experiences.
Each girl working to achieve the Girl Scout Silver Award must complete four requirements that will help her build leadership and living skills, explore career possibilities, and make a commitment to improving herself. The final requirement is to design and carry out a project that takes a minimum of 30 hours to complete.
