NORFOLK, Neb. -- An animal shelter in northeast Nebraska is raising money for a good cause.

The Animal Shelter of Northeast Nebraska in Norfolk is holding its annual Bark-B-Q fundraiser this Sunday.

The shelter will be serving pulled pork sandwiches and will be holding several raffles for prizes.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour the shelter and have the chance to fill out applications for pets they are interested in adopting.

Amber Anderson, the fundraising manager for the shelter, said the event is a great way for the community to come together and learn more about the shelter.

"It's important because it gets the community out here. Obviously, it's important because it is a fundraiser, but then the community gets to come out and be around our building, see our animals, meet our staff, and see what we are all about," Anderson said. "If you've never been here before this is a great time to stop out and go through our shelter, get some lunch, and try to win some fun prizes."

Anderson added that dog trainer, Jean Allen, will also put on an obedience demonstration at the event.

Funds raised will go towards animal care at the shelter.

Sunday's event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
