Todd County teen raises $800 to support Christian County Animal Shelter

Miss Mallory’s Sweet Corn in Elkton raised $800 to benefit the Christian County Animal Shelter.

Miss Mallory’s Sweet Corn is operated by 13-year-old Mallory Werner in Todd County, and they had a bumper crop this year—so she took the chance to help raise some funds to support the animals at the Christian County Regional Animal Shelter.

Selling the surplus of sweet corn Mallory—the daughter of Rhonda and Ben Werner—was able to raise $800 to support the animal shelter. They purchased $650 worth of dog and cat food from Elkton Southern States and $150 in pill pockets from PetSmart, and then donated those items to the animal shelter on Friday.

Staff with the animal shelter praised the effort, saying they could not say thank you enough.

The Christian County Regional Animal Shelter accepts animals from more than just Christian County—they also take in animals from Todd and Trigg Counties.
