Dixie Day Spay’s sixth annual Doggone Dessert Party will be this Sunday, from 1-4 p.m. at Mark’s Dog House on Keith Street in Cleveland.

Admission is $10, $5 for children younger than 12. The day will include all the yummy, ooey-gooey desserts you can hold and proceeds will help to fund spay/neuter, vaccinations and other services for dogs and cats.

Dixie Day Spay is a low-cost, non-profit spay/neuter clinic, dedicated to the No Kill mission. In addition to providing low-cost services to clients, Dixie Day Spay works closely with Cleveland for a No Kill City and provides surgeries at no-cost for cats coming from Cleveland Animal Control and going into the barn cat relocation program.

Dixie Day Spay opened in 2009 and since that time has performed more than 16,000 spay/neuter surgeries.

In addition to the desserts, there will be a silent auction during the event.

If you’d like to donate a favorite dessert, hors d'oeuvres or items for the auction, bring them to Dixie Day Spay, 182 Airport Road in Cleveland, between 1 and 5 p.m. on Saturday, or bring them to the event. If you need to arrange a pick-up time, call 618-2101 or 476-7122.
