Four animals suffered neglect. Trumbull Animal Group is trying to help.

TRUMBULL - The Trumbull Animal Group has launched a fundraising drive to pay for nearly $5,000 in emergency medical procedures - including teeth and eye removal - for four animals suffering from neglect.

The animals, three dogs and a cat, needed surgical procedures after town officials found them in a Trumbull home.

"TAG does great things for us, and they really help a lot financially," said Animal Control Officer Lynn Dellabianca. "If we had to cover the cost of these surgeries, it would destroy our budget." On the fundraising page, posted by Trumbull resident Tara Figueroa, the group explained the high cost.
