Fishkill Animal Alliance to host event at Fishkill Town Hall
A group of concerned citizens has come together to help animals and people in Fishkill and surrounding areas.
The Fishkill Animal Alliance provides humane education, guidance and supportive action in the resolution of diverse animal needs. Cat colony caretaker, Fishkill resident and founding member of the Fishkill Animal Alliance (FAA) Carol Deyo said there are many ways to help: “Establish evacuation and emergency planning protocol for pet owners, bring in low-cost spay/neuter clinics for both pet cats and feral or stray cats is just a start.”
One of the group’s first actions is to bring The Animal Rights Alliance, Inc., (TARA), a low-cost mobile spay/neuter clinic for cats to Fishkill Town Hall on a monthly basis.
Fishkill Cares for Cats will be held at the Town of Fishkill Town Hall, 807 Route 52, on Thursday, Sept. 25. Feline drop-off for services (appointment only) is from 7:30 to 8:15 a.m., with pickup determined that morning, dependent on number of cats being served. The FAA will provide a ferrying service to transport felines from points north and east of Fishkill. For details, to sponsor a cat or set up an appointment, visit soundearth.com/ or call 845-489-2378.
