The Drumheller and District Humane Society had their annual Spay-ghetti Luncheon on February 9th and it was another successful one.

"We raised a little over two thousand dollars and we had just about two hundred people show up too. It was pretty comparable to last year so that was good," explained Megan Shearer, president of the Humane Society.

"This was our tenth year doing it, its always done really well for us. It is really fun and is normally something that is really easy for us to get together as well. This year we had a lot of support from our volunteers. We had about twenty of us there volunteering. It was really awesome," Shearer continued.

The humane society is always facing many bills for the cats such as food, cat litter, vet bills and so much more.

" The money will be going towards vet bills. We have had a few things come up this past month. We had a cat who needed dental. Also, there was a cat who had been out during this cold snap and had to get the tip of his tail amputated," concluded Shearer.
