MULLETS FOR MUTTS
Animal Lovers and Fellow Citizens,
Members of the Branford Fire Department (Local 2533) will be doing a fundraiser in order to support the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter. The animal shelter will be undergoing renovations starting the 3rd week of June and to be completed early summer of 2022.
The shelter was established in 2003 and is in desperate need of renovation. They will be completely gutting the existing building and adding a significant addition, which will double the size of the facility and they will be adding trails to take the dogs on walks. Currently, the shelter has 19 kennels for dogs, each housing 1 adult dog, or mom’s with puppies. The shelter is also able to house between 75-100 cats. The shelter is also able to house other critters, including; birds, hamsters, sugar gliders, etc. Annually, the shelter adopts out between 500 and 750 animals.
In order to raise funds, participants have been growing their hair for several months and have gotten their hair shaped into mullet form. Due to the massive cost inflation of building materials, the funds raised will be allocated towards the facility renovation. The fundraiser is to go live on August 1, 2021 and will conclude on October 31, 2021.
