An impromptu group of concerned citizens met in December of ’06 to discuss the deteriorating condition of the Town of Groton Animal Control Facility and how they could improve things. A follow-up meeting was held in January of ’07 and the participants decided to form a non-profit organization whose goals would be to:
Inform Groton citizens of the need for a new facility
Get a referendum on the November ’07 ballot for bond moneys for a new structure
Provide continuing additional financial and physical support to the animal facility when needed.
The organization was named the Groton Animal Center Inc.(GAC). GAC became incorporated in March of ’07 and in June of the same year, received its 501 (c) (3) tax exempt status.
