Wags to Riches tries to "Spay It Forward" with dinner Saturday
YAKIMA, Wash. - Volunteers are hosting a "Spay-ghetti & No Balls" feed Saturday night to help control the local pet population.
Wags to Riches will give all of the proceeds to its "Spay It Forward" program. There are 10 animals euthanatized every day, according to members of the group.
Jaime Lee spent most of the day helping to get the West Valley Fire Station ready for the spaghetti feed. She says there is only so much the County can do and often gives up resources finding abandoned animals.
"There's several non-profit organizations who try to step up and help but we're trying to really get to the problem," she said. "Spay and neutering is really expensive and this way we can really help people and pets that can't afford it."
You do not need a ticket in advance to attend and can stop by at any time between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. at the station located on 10000 Zier Rd.
