Lincoln Animal Ambassador’s annual Spay-ghetti and No Balls fundraiser is back for its seventh year. Set aside the evening of Saturday, March 21st, for dinner, entertainment, and a dessert auction. You won’t want to miss this event!
The fundraiser will be held at the Unitarian Church at 6300 A Street starting at 6:00 PM. Dinner will include salad, spaghetti, and bread sticks. Meatballs are available for an extra cost of $5 for three meatballs. Wine and beer will also be available for purchase.
The featured speakers will be Brad Beam of Austin Pets Alive and Carlee Fiddee from the Beatrice Humane Society. The two will speaking about the No Kill Movement. Austin Pets Alive became No-Kill in 2012. An effort that was accomplished in just four years. In 2018, the Beatrice Humane Society operated with an amazing 94.1% live release rate, allowing it to be recognized as a No-Kill shelter, by taking in 856 dogs and cats from Gage County; 810 of them were placed in new homes through the help of local and regional rescues. Brad and Carlee desire to share their no-kill mission and methods, not just with the local community, but also with the state and the region.
Ending the evening will be LAA’s popular dessert auction featuring a variety of luscious desserts donated by local businesses. Tom Basset will once again lend his auctioneering talents for the lively and fun dessert auction.

Your support of our fundraisers will help LAA to continue its efforts to curb pet overpopulation through low-cost spay/neuter and an income-based pet food bank. In 2019, LAA assisted with 226 spay/neuter procedures; almost 5 every single week! The average cost of spaying an animal is less than one-tenth the cost for caring for a homeless pet while it awaits placement in a loving home. Pet food banks help relieve the stress of owners who can’t provide for their pets, and help reduce the number of pets that are taken to already overcrowded shelters. In 2019 alone, LAA’s pet food bank helped 320 families.
Lincoln Animal Ambassadors addresses the root causes of animal homelessness in the Lancaster area by helping pets and their people through a voucher-based low cost spay/neuter program, an income-based pet food bank, and sponsors a low-cost vaccination clinic. LAA is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, all-volunteer organization funded entirely by donations and fundraisers.
