Collection of Items for Local Animal Shelter

 

The Lyon Co KY Farm Bureau is still collecting items for the local animal shelter. Items needed are food, old blankets and towels, bleach, and of course, cash. We accept any items, such as collars, dog beds, leashes, toys, etc. Donations go to the Mary Hall Ruddiman Animal Shelter in Crittenden County, as that is where the Lyon County strays are taken. You can drop off items at the Lyon KFB office in Eddyville, or call 270-388-9718 for more information.
