EPHRATA — It’ll be spaghetti in a good cause Saturday night at the annual fundraising dinner for Grant County Animal Outreach. The annual “Spayghetti” dinner is scheduled for 6 p.m. at American Legion Post No. 28, 276 Eighth Ave. NW, Ephrata.

Dinner will be accompanied by a silent and a live auction. Veterinarian Sheena Sorenson, owner of the Sagehills Veterinary Clinic in Othello, will be the guest speaker. It’s one of the organization’s biggest fundraisers, said GCAO director Carmen Derting.

Grant County Animal Outreach helps pets animals that — well, need their help. “We take care of animals that don’t have anywhere to go until we can find them a home,” Derting said.

Animal Outreach provides a temporary home for lost, strayed or abandoned animals; most of their animals eventually find new homes or are reunited with their owners. Animal are euthanized only when they are too sick or injured.

Animals that arrive sick or injured are treated, and vet bills are among the organization’s biggest expenses, Derting said. In 2018 Derting estimated GCAO spent more than $63,000 for veterinary bills.
