You can help needy animals in Rockford just by eating pasta.
This Saturday, Paws Humane Society will host its sixth annual Pasta for Paws event at the Eagles Club in Rockford.
Tickets are available at Pawshs.org.
Children 12 and under are $9 and adults are $15.
Not only will there be a pasta dinner complete with dessert, but there will also be animals for adoption.
Paws board member Holly Tallard brought by Christopher to the 13 WREX studio and explained how the community can make a big difference in animals' lives by coming out to Pasta for Paws.
"We just get a venue and get all kinds of things to auction off and hope people come out and have a good dinner and buy some auction items and help us, you know, by helping these guys. Because it if wasn't for those kinds of dinners and events, this little guy like Christopher wouldn't be saved," Tallard says.
