"Lefty" is just one of the animals available for adoption at the shelter.
The Trail of Tears Park on East Ninth Street normally hosts the annual Pow-Wow, but will be the home of the first ever “Bow-Wow” this weekend.
The event is a kickoff for a fundraising campaign meant to help pay for the spaying or neutering of shelter animals so their offspring doesn’t return to the shelter needing a home years down the road.
Christian County Animal Shelter Director Irene Grace says the local facility is already taking part in the “Get Them Done” campaign.
Even though it’s a fundraiser, there’s no admission cost. Ms. Grace says there are ways to contribute by buying food and other items at the event in addition to making a monetary donation.
The event kicks off at 4 with registration and continues until 8pm. There will be several contests, drawings and other activities. Ms. Grace says everyone is welcome to attend and to bring their dog or cat.
