Jefferson City Pet Owners Raise Money
JEFFERSON CITY - Pet owners and volunteers gathered to raise money for a new Jefferson City Animal Shelter.
The fundraiser included raffles, food, games, vendors, and live music. Pets up for adoption were also on display.
All proceeds from the event go directly to the building fund for the new shelter.
Pet owner Roxanna Antele says there is a need for a shelter upgrade.
"I think it's a really good idea because they do take care of the animals and I mean, the shelter they do have now is kind of small so I think it will help out Jeff City a lot to get a bigger shelter," said Antele.
The fundraising goal is set at $300,000. Shelter officials say the building project begins in early Spring.
