GROTON, Conn. (WTNH) — A longtime animal control officer has received a special honor.
Donna Duso recently retired from the Groton Police Department. She had been an animal control officer in the shoreline town for nearly 30 years and was instrumental in getting the new animal shelter built behind the police station.
Today, she turned in her radio and her friends and co-workers surprised her by having the drive to the shelter named after her, Donna Duso Drive.
“Words can’t describe how I feel right now. I truly loved my job. I had a 29-year career here with the town and I have to say I truly enjoyed just every minute of it,” said Duso.
Duso says she will continue to work with the animals at the shelter as a volunteer.
