The Christian County Animal Shelter held its much-anticipated drawing for a free gas grill this morning.
Raffle tickets had been sold for the last several weeks for the chance to win a gas grill donated by Tractor Supply. Animal Shelter Director Irene Grace says Brenda Robinson of Manchester, Tennessee was the name drawn by Judge-Executive Steve Tribble in a morning ceremony at the store on the east side of the bypass.
Ms. Grace says the raffle brought in 850 dollars for the animal shelter. She also says the shelter is in desperate need of homes for cats and kittens, as the feline population at the shelter has dramatically increased the last several days.
The adoption fees for cats are being reduced in most cases to help those animals find homes as soon as possible.
