An animal shelter in Texas County, MO, is getting calls from across the country - but not for dogs.
The Animal Shelter of Texas County will soon be giving away guns in its "You Lucky Dog" raffle. The shelter is raising funds by selling $100 tickets to win Remington and Marlin firearms.
Shelter officials say they will give away one gun a week for the next year beginning Feb. 16. The money raised will help them keep their doors open and feed the pets they care for. The shelter will sell a total of 1,000 tickets. Each ticket is good for all 52 drawings, and one ticket can win up to two times.
You don't have to live in Missouri to win, but winning ticket holders will have to pass a background check and arrange travel to Missouri to pick up their gun.
To buy a ticket, call the Animal Shelter of Texas County at 417-967-0700.
