Mountain View Humane hosts 2nd annual 'Spay-ghetti NRV'

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7)— Services for animals in our area will be more affordable after a fundraiser held Tuesday in the New River Valley.

Mountain View Humane held its second annual ‘Spay-ghetti NRV’ to raise money to help with spay and neuter procedures they offer in our area, and to help control animal populations.

In addition to serving plates of spaghetti, they sold some swag and baked goods, all to make treatments for animals more affordable for you.

“People who can’t afford it can still come to us; it’s still high-quality care, but that way the animals are happier and healthy and there’s less homeless animals,” said community engagement coordinator Dayna Reynolds. “Even in our community we still have animals euthanized all the time because there’s just not enough space for them.”

Animals that are spayed and neutered are more likely to live three to years longer than those that are not.

Mountain View Humane said last year it performed more than 6,000 procedures.
