Johnson County Animal Shelter raising money to get through the winter
The Johnson County animal shelter is raising money to help them get through the winter. On Sunday the shelter hosted a chili dinner-gospel sing.
Lisa Trusty-Roberts, shelter president and manager, said the event benefits a good cause.
"We are hoping it will just grow year to year like I said this is our second one so hopefully this will just grow," said Trusty-Roberts. "Ordinarily starting in the fall and winter our population goes down but we've not seen a decrease for some reason we're saying that all over Eastern Kentucky."
Money that is needed during a time the shelter has seen a recent influx of animals.
"Last two weeks we've had 20 pups come in one day. We have three different mothers with 15 puppies among them," said Trusty-Roberts. "Also during the winter months are electric bill goes up of course. "
