Fishkill Cares for Cats Event Benefits Animals in Need: Sound Earth presents annual benefit for cats on Saturday, March 30, 2013

Sound Earth, New York’s only manufacturer of natural, pet-safe cleaning products, presents their annual Fishkill Cares for Cats benefit on Saturday, March 30. The family-oriented event takes place from noon to 4:30 p.m. at the Dutchess Plaza Shopping Center in Fishkill and features food, music, face painting, raffles and humane education and demonstrations. Proceeds go to Furry Friends Pet Rescue, Inc. of Hopewell Junction, Katmarroon, Inc. of Newburgh and the humane efforts of Sound Earth.

In addition to the festivities, The Animal Rights Alliance, Inc., a mobile spay and neuter clinic for cats, will provide low cost health services to cats on site. The service benefits animal rescue organizations, individuals and families who have not, for financial reasons, been able to spay or neuter their pets. Feline drop-off services are by appointment only and take place from 7:30 to 8:15 a.m., with pick-up times from 4 to 4:30 p.m. For complete details, to sponsor a cat or set up an appointment, visit or call Ann at 845.489.2378. The first 50 cats to be dropped off will receive a goodie bag.

Fishkill Cares for Cats attendees will receive a free raffle ticket when they donate an item from any rescue center wish list, and adoption applications will be accepted. Sound Earth, which is recognized as a cruelty-free company, offers customizable, scented products that are safe for people, pets and the planet.  

The Dutchess Plaza Shopping Center is located at 1545 Rte. 52 in Fishkill, NY. For more information about Sound Earth and Fishkill Cares for Cats visit
