The Groton Animal Foundation Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization which raises funds to subsidize the general needs of the Town of Groton Animal Control Facility and the medical needs of its residing animals. In addition, the Groton Animal Foundation advocates for the animals by educating the public and funding ancillary programs.
The amazing girl scouts pictured below are Amelia, Riley and Jackie of Groton Girl Scout Troop 63124 along with Groton Animal Control Officer, Christine O’Brien. The girls held a donation drive, “Give Luck to the Animals that are Stuck”, for animal control by placing bins at local businesses. Mystic Pet Shop matched their donations in the bin at their store. The scouts did this from late February until just after March 17th, 2016. On March 25th, they delivered their generous donations to animal control. The girls were so proud, and we could not be more proud of them either! They brought everything from cat food, dog food, litter, to treats and toys! Once things were unloaded, they got a tour of the facility, where they met some of the animals available for adoption. The scouts are planning another drive in the future, so we will let you know when it’s happening.
Once again, we are overwhelmed by the selfless compassion and dedication of youngsters in our community, and we are so grateful for the support they receive from the business community and our equally charitable and generous citizens. Thank you everyone, for pulling together to help the animals!
We’d like to extend many thanks to Kylie Heard, age 13, who asked for donations to the animal shelter instead of presents for herself. Way to go, Kylie! We are inspired by such selfless compassion, and the animals will certainly benefit from all the wonderful donations. Thanks again to Kylie and all her generous friends and family who helped out.
We’d like to extend a special thanks to PetValu for their recent, very generous donation of kitty litter and dog food to Groton Animal Control. We are so grateful for their support of the animals at the shelter. We are very fortunate to have many caring and compassionate businesses here in Groton, as well as our devoted community of great citizens.
