Fishkill Cares for Cats – Save The Date!
Categories: Animal Rescue, SpayDay

Good news!  Sound Earth is sponsoring Fishkill Cares for Cats to be held on March 31, 2012 at the Fishkill Town Hall.

As you may know, many communities across the United States are facing a stray and feral cat overpopulation crisis, and Dutchess County is no exception.

“In 2010, Best Friends Animal Society, a nationally renowned animal advocacy organization and sanctuary, conducted a study of the feral cat population in the United States. Their report indicates that there are approximately 95,000 homeless cats in Dutchess County. These cats produce approximately 100,000 kittens each year and 25,000 of those kittens will survive to reach adulthood and begin breeding to add even further to the cat overpopulation crisis.” Shared by P.A.N.T. (Partners for Animals in Need of Transition)

As the owner of Sound Earth, and a passionate animal advocate, I am delighted to share some fantastic news with you. The Animal Rights Alliance, Inc., (TARA), a mobile spay/neuter clinic for cats, has accepted an invitation to come to Fishkill Cares for Cats on Saturday, March 31, 2012 to be held in the Fishkill Town Hall parking lot. They have also, graciously, offered a phenomenal rate for their services, benefitting animal rescue organizations, individuals and families who have, to date, not been able to afford to have their cat(s) spayed or neutered.

In addition, Fishkill Cares for Cats will be a community event with music, face painting, humane education information, animal friendly vendors, vegan food and raffles!  ** You’ll receive a FREE raffle ticket when you bring an item from our wishlist! It will be a great day to meet other people, like you, who love and appreciate our animal kind. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our community cats, and stop the ongoing cycle of too many cats born into a system which cannot hold them.  Together, we can also stop their senseless pain and suffering and, especially, their untimely death!

All proceeds will be divided between Furry Friends Pet Rescue (501c3 status pending) and Guardian Angel Cat Rescue (501c3 status pending). Both are Hudson Valley rescue organizations committed to dogs and cats in our community.

Lots more details to come, but make sure to put this on your calendar!
