The non-profit organization, which is located at 1395 176 St., is currently selling tickets for a 50/50 draw, with half the proceeds going to the winner and half going to the society, to help it continue to care for exotic animals while also “educating the public about animals, their environments and the natural world.”

The draw will be made on Dec. 15 at 5 p.m. As of Monday morning, there was $380 in the pot. Tickets are $5 each, three for $10 or 10 for $20. To purchase, visit https://urbansafari.rafflenexus.com. A maximum of 6,200 tickets will be sold.
