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.
Our PETASTIC! display is up at the Groton Public Library through the month of April. Be sure to check out the trivia, find out how small a pet microchip really is, see the oldest expired dog tag in the town’s collection, and “tag and brag” if you licensed your dog in your town!
