Chief Anthony J. Salvatore & Animal Control Officer Cheryl L. Gagnon announces that they have established a "Special Needs for Pets" fund. The fund was developed to help local animals that are picked up by Animal Control. Donated monies go directly to shelter animals that may need to be spayed, neutered, need special surgeries, or may need vaccinations. In addition, the funds objective is to improve the level of animal care through education and community outreach events.
Animal Control can always use donations of blankets, leashes, collars, food, treats, and toys. Any donations can be dropped off at either the Town Hall Clerk's Office or First Selectman's office or at the Cromwell Police Department. Monetary donations can be made to the 'Special Needs for Pets Fund' at anytime by contacting Animal Control.
