Allison Targowski, an 8th grade student at Madison Middle School saw a post about a dog in need at the Trumbull Animal Shelter she wanted to help. Snickers is a 4-year-old Chihuahua who had been diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes making his vision very impaired and eventually he will go blind. She raised $2,800 to help with Snickers surgery. She opened a GoFundMe account and sold Snickers candy bars.
Snickers had his eye surgery to remove cataracts on May 14, and is recovering well. He was adopted on May 22 to a Trumbull family and is doing great.
