The Humane Society of Rowan County will host a spaghetti lunch and dinner fundraiser on Friday, Feb. 26, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. at VFW Post 3006, 1200 Brenner Ave. Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for children under 12.

Dine-in and carry-out meals will be available, and volunteers will deliver orders of five or more dinners to workplaces within Salisbury and Rowan County. Delivery orders should be called to 704-636-5700, option 9, by 10 a.m. on Feb. 26.

A raffle and a silent auction for various gift cards, crafts by local artists, a silver animal rescue bracelet and pet care items will be held during the event. Supporters who bring a pet food item or cat litter for The HSRC’s pet food bank will be entered into a drawing for a gift card to a local restaurant. DJ Mel will provide a variety of music throughout lunch and dinner.

The Humane Society of Rowan County is a non-profit volunteer organization founded in 1973 and chartered by the State of North Carolina in 1974. In addition to the care and rehabilitation of sick or injured stray and abandoned animals, the organization operates a reduced cost spay and neuter service with local veterinarians and the pet food bank for pet guardians in financial crisis. The organization depends on foster homes for the care of its animals, and depends solely on contributions from supporters and foundations for its operating expenses.
