It’s a funny name but a great cause! The Arizona Small Dog Rescue is hosting their first ever SpayGhetti and No Balls Gala July 28, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale, located at 7500 E. Doubletree Ranch Rd. in Scottsdale, Ariz. 85258.
“Last year alone, the Arizona Small Dog rescue spent nearly $60,000 to spay and neuter more than 900 animals that came into our shelter. This is a huge expenditure for us,” said Linda Bridgeman, Event Organizer. “The funds raised during the Gala will be used exclusively towards spaying and neutering costs for future procedures.”
Tickets for the inaugural event are $63 per person if purchased before May 31 ($70 per person if purchased after.) Tickets include an Italian dinner buffet, Portillo’s famous chocolate cake, silent auctions, raffles, dancing and lots of fun.
“If we can reduce the number of unwanted animals in our community through spaying and neutering, we will diminish the number of animals who are needlessly euthanized each year because of pet overpopulation,” added Bridgeman. “That is a significant win for everyone involved – especially our four-legged friends.”
The Arizona Small Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) no-kill shelter and rescue organization. Their mission is to help with the care, rehabilitation and adoption of abused, unwanted, homeless, sick or injured animals throughout the greater Phoenix area. Volunteers also work tirelessly to find forever homes for the rescued animals.

A Round of Golf Can Help Save Dogs Across the Valley
The Arizona Small Dog Rescue will host its fourth annual “Putts for Mutts” charity golf tournament May 6 at Lookout Mountain Golf Course at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliff Resort located at 11111 N. 7th Street, Phoenix, Ariz. 85020.
The annual tournament helps raise funds for the 501(c)(3) no-kill shelter and rescue organization and will help hundreds of dogs receive medical care, vaccinations and spay/neuter procedures. It will also help offset overall shelter expenses incurred each year.
“The money raised during this event goes directly to the care of homeless, unwanted, abandoned, neglected and abused dogs and cats in our shelter while they wait for their forever families,” said Shelly Parker, Board Member. “Last year’s golf tournament was a huge success and the funds raised made a real difference in the number of animal lives we can positively impact. We look forward to exceeding last year’s accomplishments at this year’s tournament.”
The event begins with a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start and will include a light breakfast, 18 holes of golf, prizes, a silent auction and awards luncheon hosted by local comedian, actor and dog rescue advocate, Jill Kimmel.
Tickets are $100 per single player or $380 per foursome if purchased by May 1 (or $110 per single player/$420 per foursome after May 1).
All proceeds will benefit the Arizona Small Dog Rescue and its mission to help with the care, rehabilitation and adoption of abused, unwanted, homeless, sick or injured animals throughout the greater Phoenix area.
