Saturday, Oct. 10 — Happy Pasta 4 Paws Dinner Day!
While we can’t be in the same room together feasting on delicious pasta, we can still share what our Pasta 4 Paws feasts look like! Take a photo or short video and share it on social media with the hashtag #pasta4paws or send it directly to us at [email protected]! We’re all waiting with anticipation to see how everyone is snacking, lunching, or dining to celebrate.


Our 16th annual Pasta 4 Paws fundraiser has gone VIRTUAL this year, and it’s in its final days! Please click on the video above to let us welcome you!

The animals in our care, and those who are waiting to be saved, need your help more than ever during the pandemic. Even though we can’t all be together in one place, we can still come together in spirit and generosity. You provide your own in-home dinner – it can be pasta or anything you like! To help you get in the spirit, you can purchase an “event ticket” that snags you a special Pasta 4 Paws t-shirt and goodie bag — and the good feeling of knowing that you’re helping homeless animals. And, we are holding our much-anticipated Auction!

You can view and bid on auction items now, through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, October 11th.  New items are being added daily!

You can also sign up for your “event ticket” for just $20 per person by clicking on “Event Tickets” at the top left of that page. Or, you can visit the shelter or call us at (904) 321-1647. Each “event ticket” helps you get in the spirit of Pasta 4 Paws with a custom-designed t-shirt and goodie bag  containing treats for both humans and either dogs or cats. If you prefer, you can donate directly here to help the animals. 

T-shirts and goodie bags are available for pick-up now at the shelter, 639 Airport Road in Fernandina Beach. Auction items will be available for pick-up at the shelter starting Tuesday, Oct. 13th during normal business hours.

Since you are in the comfort of your own home this year, it doesn’t have to be dinner. If you are craving pasta for breakfast, lunch, or a midnight snack then go for it, we won’t judge you! We would love to receive pictures and/or video of your dinner to share on our social media — just send them to [email protected]. 

From the bottom of our hearts and from the tip of their noses to the end of the tails of ALL the animals in need, we thank you for supporting our 16th Annual and first ever Virtual Pasta 4 Paws. Let’s make this the best year ever and not allow one single animal to miss out on their chance of being adopted into a loving and safe home.

Bon (or is it Bone?) Appetit!

And thank you, from the Nassau Humane Society!
