We would like to thank every one of the 190 generous supporters who turned out for our Cause for Paws fundraiser at Shennecossett Yacht Club on September 15th. The event was a tremendous success, and its proceeds will allow us to continue our mission of supporting the important work of the Groton Animal Control facility. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, many more animals will receive much needed veterinary care and find good homes with wonderful adopters. This work would not be possible without each of you, and so we thank you most kindly.
We would also like to thank a few of the individuals who contributed to the success of the event:
- Jane Cofone for her very generous contribution toward the catering bill
