ELEVENTH HOUR RESCUE PRESENTS SPAY-GHETTI DINNER
Family fun event will raise awareness and funds to promote spay and neuter of rescue animals
Eleventh Hour Rescue today announced their plans to host a Spay-ghetti Dinner on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013 at the Boonton Elks Lodge in Boonton, New Jersey from 4:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.. This event will aim to raise much-needed funds to cover the costs of spaying and neutering the many rescue animals Eleventh Hour Rescue saves each year. The Spay-ghetti Dinner will also be an opportunity to promote the importance of spay and neuter to the local community.
Last year, Eleventh Hour Rescue spayed and neutered over 2,000 rescue cats and dogs. With these procedures ranging in cost from $75 to $140, this is an incredible expense for the organization to undertake. Every animal rescued by Eleventh Hour Rescue is fixed on the rescue’s dime.
The Spay-ghetti Dinner will be a fun-filled family night out to help offset this tremendous cost. Each ticket includes salad, bread, spaghetti, meatballs, and a non-alcoholic beverage. Additional meatballs and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. The event will include a bake sale featuring delicious homemade treats in exchange for donations. In addition to tasty food, the Spay-ghetti Dinner will feature a Tricky Tray, a 50/50, music, and more! Guests will also have the opportunity to learn more about Eleventh Hour Rescue and the importance of spay and neuter. The Spay-ghetti Dinner is being sponsored by Mountainview Veterinary Hospital, 101 Us Highway 46 in Rockaway, New Jersey (973-983-0500).
Eleventh Hour Rescue’s mission is to rescue dogs and cats from “death row” in high-kill shelters across the country and they aim to continue this work until “all the cages are empty”. Un-fixed pets are a huge contributor to the pet overpopulation problem in the United States. Eleventh Hour Rescue aims to promote the importance of spay and neuter to the local community.
Linda Schiller, President and Founder of Eleventh Hour Rescue, strongly believes in raising awareness for spay and neuter programs: “Last year three and a half million dogs and cats were killed in shelters nationwide. Most of them were healthy and highly adoptable. At Eleventh Hour Rescue we do not believe that euthanasia is a solution to the pet overpopulation problem. Responsible pet ownership and spaying and neutering of our companion animals are the keys to stopping this terrible cycle.”
Tickets for the Spay-ghetti Dinner are available for purchase at bit.ly/EHRSpayghetti. Presale tickets are $10 for children twelve and under and $15 for adults. Tickets will be sold at the door at a cost of $15 for children twelve and under and $20 for adults. Guests will have the choice of purchasing tickets for the first seating from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. or for the second seating from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.. Drawings will occur at the end of the second seating, winners do not need to be present.
