Dickenson County Raises $500 For Spay/Neuter Program

By Kelly Mullins, Dickenson County Chapter Manager

Brother Wolf’s Dickenson County chapter held its 2nd annual Spay-ghetti No Balls fundraiser on January 12th. Dedicated volunteers and staff members delivered 100 cruelty-free dinners to community businesses and raised over $500 (more than double from last year!) to cover spay/neuter costs of animals we will rescue in 2018. The funds raised will provide spay/neuter surgeries for 15 animals.

To show appreciation to Dickenson county law enforcement and first responders, free dinners were delivered to them to enjoy. Leftover meals were delivered by volunteers to the elderly and homeless members of our community.

Staff members at Pound Veterinary Hospital and Pampered Paws Grooming were also treated to meals for all of the compassion they show the animals in Brother Wolf’s care.

I first got the idea for a Spay-ghetti No Balls fundraiser from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue’s founder Denise Bitz, who has held similar fundraisers in Asheville to raise money to support their spay/neuter program. Local businesses generously donated supplies to make our event possible.

Spaying and neutering helps prevent many infections and cancers, as well as curbs bad behavior. Most importantly, it lessens the amount of homeless animals in already overcrowded shelters.

The ongoing support of our community helps build progress towards a No-Kill Dickenson. The success of this year’s event is a testament to how much the community supports our No-Kill mission. To donate to Brother Wolf Dickenson County chapter, you can donate via PayPay (dickenson@bwar.org), by phone at (276) 926-2314, or send by mail to PO Box 1265 Clintwood Va, 24228.
