Trumbull Animal Group names new board members; asking for donations

The Trumbull Animal Group (TAG), has announced the board members voted in this month: Jenny Kelly, President; Debbie Miraballes, Vice President; Secretary, Haley McCarthy; Treasurer, Debbie Selski; Board members, Dulvi Gaudio, Sandy Bogannam and Jennifer Strausser.

The Trumbull Animal Group is a volunteer organization dedicated to the mission of helping animals by fund-raising, walking, and assisting the shelter in any way possible. The shelter is run by Animal Control Officer Lynn DellaBianca, Jeanie Salvio, and Gena Mangiacapra.

TAG is asking for help from the community to raise money for agility equipment for the dogs. When a dog is in the shelter, it is imperative to keep their mind and body active. Agility equipment such as weave poles, jumps, tunnels, and a see saw will make a huge difference to the dogs. The use of these items will stimulate the dogs by teaching them new tricks and exercise them in a way they are not used to. The goal is $500 for the equipment. Make check payable to TAG and mail to P.O. Box 110090 Trumbull, CT 06611.

TAG will be at the Trumbull Library, 33 Quality Street, for the children’s book fair on Saturday June 21, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Stop by to see pictures of the animals looking for homes, and donate to our cause.
