GROTON -- The Dog Pound/Shelter is in need of towels, blankets, washable dog beds, collars, leashes, dog brushes, dog combs, large plastic storage bins/containers with tops (to store blankets, towels and food) and dog toys. The items do not need to be new, but they must be in good, clean condition. To donate, send an email to email@example.com or find the booth at Grotonfest on Sept. 21.
Jennifer and Lauren Thorburn, in Girl Scouts Troop 66530, are working on their Silver Award project. The Silver Award identifies a community issue that needs to be addressed. They have chosen Groton Animal Pound/Shelter, and will be at Grotonfest with a booth to offer patrons the option of purchasing or donating a new toy, collar, leash and other dog supplies for the pound/shelter. They are also asking people to bring used dog supplies that are in good, clean condition to donate at Grotonfest.
