February 13--  Each year at this time, the smell of spaghetti fills the Vidalia Community Center, but it’s not just about the pasta and the sauce. It’s time for the annual Sweet Onion Animal Protection Society’s SPAY-Ghetti fundraiser, and SOAPS CEO Therisa Ingley said that means “serving up some noodles for some poodles” — or whatever other breed or variety of the lives of the  many dogs and cats that SOAPS rescues.

Ingley said the work the organization does for homeless and unwanted animals is constant, and she doesn’t see it getting any better despite continually trying to educate the public on the need for spaying or neutering.

SOAPS partners with rescue organizations in the North who make trip to Vidalia and the area and transport them to where they are more likely to find good homes.

Ingley said that because of the generosity of places like J&B’s Rare 2 Well Done and corporate sponsors like Paul Thigpen Automotive Group, 100 percent of the proceeds from  the fundraiser will be used for all the work that SOAPS does in the community.

The SPAY-ghetti Dinner will be February 25 from 5:00 -7:30. Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Tickets are available at Altamaha Animal Clinic, Vidalia Veterinary Clinic and Kilgore Animal Hospital. You can also buy advance tickets from SOAPS members or at sweetonionaps.org
