OAKHURST — The Eastern Madera County (EMC) SPCA invites the community to attend a special evening meal where you can fill feed your tummy and do some good at the same time.
Set for the Oakhurst Community Center on Friday, Oct. 25, volunteers are putting together a “Spay-ghetti Dinner.”
The fun goes from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. and cost for the delicious meal is $10 for adults and $5 for children under 7 years old.
The “Spay-ghetti Dinner” pun is on the house. Proceeds from the event go to support programs of the EMC SPCA. Guests are invited to dine-in with friends at the Community Center and to take part in an art and jewelry raffle which is said to be “fabulous.” To-go dinners will be available, also.
According to EMC SPCA President Sharon Fitzgerald, there’s good news surrounding the issue of spaying and neutering of cats and dogs in the foothills. Friends of Madera Animal Shelter (FMAS) has received a grant from the Red and Nancy Arnold Foundation for $1.5 million. The money is allocated to benefit the residents of Madera County by providing free spay and neuter surgeries for their feline and canine pets. FMAS is a non-profit group that works with Madera County Animal Services.
Madera County Animal Services insiders estimate that this one-time gift from the Arnold Foundation will provide approximately 20,000 spay and neuter free vouchers, over the next several years. Organizers are actively working with local vets so that residents of the foothills will not have to rely on locations in Fresno for services and can do business with local veterinarians.
More information is available by reading this article recently published on SNO, or by attending the “Spay-ghetti Dinner” in person.
