Community Cat Day
CUDDEBACKVILLE, NY — There will be a feline fundraiser extravaganza on October 14 at D&H Canal Park, 58 Hoag Rd. All proceeds from the Community Cat Day fundraiser will benefit three local organizations working in local communities to provide assistance to cat caregivers and to house, care-for and spay/neuter cats in need: Animal Manor Sanctuary (Huguenot), The Country Cats (Sparrowbush) and Jill’s Ferals (Port Jervis).
The free-entry afternoon kicks off at 1 p.m. with face painting, pumpkin painting, mouse bag toss, be-a-cat photos and fun and games with humane educator Jan Berlin’s Everything Animals. A bake sale, quilt raffle, flea market booth and children’s book author Kat Michaels round out the day through 3 p.m.
From 5 to 7 p.m., there will be a “Calling All Fat Cats” event to up the ante on raising funds, with chances to win a lottery tree, a silent auction and bucket chance prizes. There will be cider, appetizers, music and a special shout-out to local veterinarians—Dr. Roeder, Dr. Pinkham, Dr. Dubensky and Dr. Nebzydoski—without whom the work of these organizations would not be possible. Tickets for the evening cost $20 each or two for $35 and include chances at the lottery tree. For more information or to purchase tickets for Calling All Fat Cats call 845/856-0977 or 845/672-0556.
