Spaghetti Dinner? Yum! Bingo? Well, Bingo! Raising money for in need kittens and puppies? Snorgle-rific! Combining them all? Epic interspecies snorgling and noming, which is exactly what the Washington Animal Rescue League has planned for its annual Pasta for Pets event to be held Saturday, March 19 from 6:00 – 8:30pm at Eastern Market’s North Hall.

The night features delicious pasta from local restaurants, an assortment of homemade desserts and, most importantly, fundraising for WARL’s Project Rescue, which provides support for local families and individuals who are finding it difficult to provide for their pets in this challenging economic climate.

Project Rescue’s aid ranges from affordable or free comprehensive veterinary services (standard vaccinations, microchips, parasite treatment, spaying and neutering, etc.,) to providing food, toys, and equipment, to giving professional assistance for people who have questions regarding pet care and training, to giving emergency shelter to animals belonging to people escaping domestic violence situations or living in other forms of temporary emergency housing.

Tickets for the event are a reasonable $20 per person, or $70 for four people, and the event is open for attendees of all ages. Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advanced, and be sure to get there early as there is limited capacity.

If you can’t make it out to Pasta for Pets, you can still help out by dropping off or arranging a pick up of  food, toys, basic supplies like cat litter, beds, dog leashes, etc., or by donating money to the Rescuer’s Food Bank by mail or online.
