Humane Society of Rowan spaghetti fundraiser is Friday
SALISBURY — The Humane Society of Rowan County will hold its semiannual spaghetti lunch and dinner fundraiser Friday at the Rhyne Building at Stallings Memorial Baptist Church, 817 S. Main St.
Dine-in or carry-out meals will be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m. with Music by Mel throughout lunch and dinner.
The meal includes spaghetti with meat or meatless sauce, garlic bread, salad, dessert and tea. The cost is $8 for adults and $4 for children under 12.
Delivery of five or more meals to a workplace is available. Requests for deliveries must be called in to 704-636-5700 by 10 a.m. Friday or faxed to 704-633-5832 by 8 p.m. Thursday. Orders cannot be called in to the church.
Local businesses and craftsmen have donated an assortment of items to be raffled at the conclusion of the fundraiser Friday evening. Tickets are available from Humane Society board members and will be for sale at the lunch and dinner. Winners do not need to be present to receive prizes.
Donations of cat and dog food and cat litter for the organization’s pet food bank will be accepted at the fundraiser to be given to local pet guardians in need.
The fundraiser will culminate a six-month recognition of the Humane Society of Rowan County’s 45th anniversary. Local residents met in October 1973 to start a nonprofit volunteer organization with the primary mission to rescue and rehabilitate sick or injured stray and abandoned animals.
Over the years, the Humane Society has added services including a reduced-cost spay and neuter collaboration with three local veterinary hospitals.
Donors contributing $45 — $1 for each year of the organization’s operation — between through March will receive a Humane Society T-shirt. The organization is not financially affiliated with any other humane organization or government agency and is funded solely through fundraising and donations.
