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 Groton Animal Foundation recently received a generous donation of pet food from Chewy.com. The gift was quite unexpected, the result of a mistaken order placed by one of their customers, Carol Hessler, of Groton.

We are ever-so-grateful to the kind folks at Chewy.com for this considerate gesture, and for their support of many non-profit organizations that help animals in need.
