Prices for the clinic are: micro-chip – $30, rabies vaccine $12 and nail trims $8.

“The Spay-ghetti and No Balls dinner is a fun opportunity for Riley County Humane Society and the community to come together to spread awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering your pets,” said Felicia Benedetto, RCHS Fundraising Coordinator. “One the biggest goals at RCHS is to reduce the amount of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens born each year, and this can be accomplished by ensuring every pet is spayed or neutered.”

All proceeds from the event will go directly toward RCHS’s initiative to help spay and neuter pets in and around Riley County, Kansas.
