Funds raised from the event will go toward free or reduced-cost spay or neuter surgeries for qualified Porter County residents. The evening will feature a pasta dinner, wine-tasting and sale, 50-50 and prize raffles, bake sale, and a silent auction.

Last year’s Spay-ghetti Dinner attracted 300 supporters who contributed to the $5,000 raised that evening. Since April, 2011 The Kibble Kitchen Pet Pantry, a not-for-profit animal surrender prevention program in Porter County, Indiana, has provided free food and supplies to the pets of more than 300 qualified families while promoting responsible pet ownership. “When we discovered that many of those who sought our help could not afford to spay or neuter their pets, we worked to provide them with discounted surgeries,” said founder and President Michelle Duca of Portage. “We’d like to take a further -step toward lessening the homeless pet population by offering free or reduced-cost spay or neuter surgeries to those who can’t afford it.”
