Christa Sorenson, founder of SMASHN (Social Mobile Assistance for Spay, Health, and Neuter), knows that pet overpopulation is “a people problem, and we need more help from the public to fix it. Spay and neuter programs will help. Adoptions, foster parents and more volunteers will help.”

Sorenson’s business, Twisted Events, will raise funds for SMASHN and one other charity with a Stress Relief Party from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 7. The event will take place at The Rock, 4129 N. 7th Ave., and is for ages 21 and older. Come to the event for games, creative contests and loads of laughs. The entrance fee is $10.

SMASHN has partnered with Friends of Animal Care & Control to raise money to support low-cost surgeries and help inform people of the benefits of spay and neuter through social media. The goal is have a spay and neutering clinic every time there is enough money. Each clinic requires $3,500 and can alter approximately 45 animals.
