What's Working: Spaytacular Disco Infurno

Party benefits animal rescue efforts

JACKSON, Miss (WJTV) -   The Big Fix Clinic in Pearl committed to offering low cost spay and neutering services. Their hard work keeps tens of thousands of animals out of Mississippi shelters every year.

  Who hasn't been waiting for a chance to slip into their old halter top or white 3 piece suit? Put on your dancing shoes and head over to Table 100 in Flowood this Saturday night, for Spaytacular 2019, Disco Infurno! 

In its half a dozen years, Spaytacular has become a staple on the Metro's social calander. Themes have taken us around the world and under the sea. This year, the 70's are back, baby! Feel free to dress accordingly.

  Shelby Parsons is the Communicaions Director for Mississippi Spay and Neuter. She says, "We will have a silent auction. We will have a live d-j spinning vinyl this year. We have a raffle and of course a costume contest."

  There is a buffet, too, but at the heart of all the merriment rests a most noble cause.

  Shelby explains, "In Mississippi, for every person that's born, 9 animals are born, dogs or cats. So we have a huge influx of animals and we don't have enough people to take care of them all."

  That's where the life-saving work of the Big Fix Clinic comes in. Vets perform thousands of low-cost procedures here, each year. Demand is so great the operation will soon move to a much larger facility in Richland.

  Shelby says, "If you've been to the Big Fix Clinic, you know that it's standing room only, and our new facility will be more than 4,000 square feet, and we will be doing 10,000 spay and neuter surgeries a year to meet the need that we have."

  You can pitch in by having a great time this Saturday night. Tickets to the Spaytacular are $60. You can buy them at the door or msspan.org. Just look for the dog with headphones and a big disco ball. 

 Doors open at six o'clock at in the party room at Table 100 for the Disco Infurno.
