Spay-ghettiFebruary is National Spay and Neuter Awareness Month, and the ARL is celebrating with a Spay-Ghetti Dinner! 

Join us for Spay-ghetti (& No Balls) dinner at Republic on Grand!  This dinner is a great way to support the ARL and learn more about our spay and neuter programs.  

At the dinner, we'll sell raffle tickets for a 1 night stay at AC Hotel!  There will also be a signature Tito's Vodka drink, and Tito's will donate $1 from each of these drinks sold.

Tickets are just $20, and $15 will be donated directly to the Animal Rescue League.  Dinner will include spaghetti marinara, bread, and a side salad, with optional add-ons for meat/veggies, appetizers, dessert, and drinks.  Reservations are available every half hour from 5PM - 9PM so get your tickets before your preferred time sells out!

About the ARL's Spay/Neuter Programs
ARL pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before adoption by the ARL's licensed staff veterinarians. Thanks to additional grant funding, the ARL also has public spay and neuter programs which offer surgeries, vaccines and microchips at low or no cost for individuals who could not otherwise afford those services. The surgeries are performed by the ARL and partner veterinarians. The full list of these programs can be found at and we encourage anyone who is interested in learning more to call us at (515) 473-9117 to discuss the programs in detail.
