Pauls Clinic will be holding a special “Spay-ghetti — It’s What’s for Dinner” fundraiser for the upcoming opening of the spay and neuter clinic located on Highway 70 near the airport.
According to Paul’s Clinic director Villa Mitchell, the event will be held at Kat’s Diner at 9155 Nashville Highway next Thursday, June 2 from 4-8 p.m. The price is $8 for all you can eat, $6 for one adult serving, and $4 for kids under 10.
The menu will include homemade spaghetti, Texas toast, salad, drinks, and a variety of desserts including brownies, ice cream and fresh strawberries.
There will be drawings for items including a coverlet from Cracker Barrel, a day of pampering at Creative Illusions, dinner for two at Applebee’s, movie passes and car care packages, among others. Tickets will be available for a donation.
Mitchell has put much time and effort into establishing Paul’s Clinic, and hopes it will make a positive impact on Warren County’s uncontrolled animal population by providing low-cost spay and neuter services.
“The best way local residents can help prevent dogs being put to sleep or abandoned is to support our clinic,” Mitchell said. “The goal of Pauls Clinic is to do just what our name says, ‘Prevent All Unwanted Litters.’ If we can do that, we will eventually reduce the pet overpopulation problem to the point we will no longer need animal control and rescue groups. Spay/ neuter is the only humane way to put a stop to killing innocent animals.”
Mitchell says those involved in Pauls Clinic realize times are hard, but she hopes everyone who believes in the humane treatment of animals will step forward to help make a difference.
“We really need citizens in Warren and surrounding counties to support us,” Mitchell said. “We have given of our time and own money, as well as $35,000 in grant money, to help citizens have their dogs fixed. We don’t get paid. We do this because we care. It’s time others cared and helped us solve this pet overpopulation problem. Anyone who doesn’t have their pet fixed is contributing to the problem.
“When the clinic is open, anyone (regardless of income) can use the clinic and we will also still provide vouchers for those that need financial help. We will also be able to fix cats, which we haven’t been able to do with the voucher program.
Mitchell asks everyone who loves and respects animals to please come out to the Spay-ghetti — It’s What’s for Dinner event and have a great time, some tasty food, cool prizes and at the same time help stop the unnecessary euthanization of abandoned and unwanted litters in Warren County by preventing those litters from being born in the first place.
