SHELTER GETS ROTARY AID
BRANFORD, CT (March 7, 2019) – The Branford Rotary Club donated $1,000 this week to the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter, funds that will help homeless animals with medical needs, surgeries, specialty equipment and much more, said shelter Director Laura Burban.
“This money will help to save animals lives,” said Burban. “Without the support of organizations such as the Rotary, we would never be able to help all the animals that we do.”
“The Cosgrove Animal Shelter does an incredible job providing care, food, and shelter for injured and neglected animals,” said Rotarian Jim Carpenter, chairman of Branford Rotary’s annual Golf tournament, which raised the funds. “In recent years, with the advent of ‘support animals,’ the shelter has helped match people in need with the proper animal companion, which shows how they continue to improve the quality of life in our town.”
The Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter’s mission is to protect the public, provide excellent animal care, find good homes for animal guests, promote responsible pet guardianship, and work to end the overpopulation of feral cats in the community.
