Bernie is one of many pets up for adoption at the shelter.
Organizers of Saturday’s Christian County Animal Shelter “Bow Wow” fundraiser are hoping for a big crowd to help fund spaying and neutering of shelter pets.
The fundraiser is to help pay for the “Get’em Done” program, which is an effort to keep the cats and dogs’ offspring from continuing the cycle of being shelter pets years down the road. The Bow Wow begins at 4pm, with shelter Director Irene Grace giving the schedule rundown.
Ms. Grace says there will be plenty of fun activities and drawings for prizes at the event, which will be held at the Trail of Tears Park.
There is no admission charge, but cash donations will be accepted and portions of proceeds from food sales will go toward the project.
