COOK, MN. (KBJR) - The Cook community is giving back to a lively place in Northern Minnesota.

Lois Pajari is the owner of Cook’s Country Connection.

She cares for more than 60 critters at the petting zoo.

It is open for field trips, family outings, and anyone looking to play with some adorable animals.

The farm is located on land that has been in Pajari’s family for more than 120 years, so it is in need of some upgrades.

That is why the community is coming together to raise $15,000 for a new driveway.

In just one day, people have raised more than $10,000.

Any extra money will be donated to Cook’s Country Connection for ongoing care for animals.
