Casco girl's toymaking brings joy to others

Making your dog happy with a new toy this week will be paid forward thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of a 10-year-old Casco girl. Sky Schoenberger began making her Tugs of Love dog toys shortly after going to a Green Bay fabric store to buy supplies for a fleece tie blanket for a friend’s birthday gift. When the clerk told her the fabric could also be used to make dog toys, Schoenberger’s love for animals kicked in. Since 2020, Schoenberger has made hundreds of her braided dog toys. The money she makes goes not to a piggy bank but instead to two charities close to her heart. Her dog Rooster and her neighbor Michael served as inspiration for her philanthropic spirit.

It is one of the biggest weeks of the year for Schoenberger, who will host her fourth annual lemonade stand at her home on Division Street at 10:30 a.m. on Friday. All proceeds will go to benefit Saving Paws Animal Rescue and the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. 


Previous version of this story had Sky living in Algoma. While the sale will be taking place in Algoma at her grandparent's house, the Schoenbergers are from Casco. DCDN regrets this error.
