Pups to Pose for Cats at Humane Society Lawn Party Sunday

Oct. 30, 2008 – The canine world is coming to the aid of its feline brethren Sunday when island pups will pose for pictures at $100 a pop to support the Humane Society of St. Thomas' Cat Café spay and neuter program.
The event is on the front lawn of Oceana Restaurant in Frenchtown from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Widely recognized professional photographers Don Hebert, Gary Felton and Kelly O'Brien along with Studio 18.3 and Blue Glass Photography are donating their talents to do justice to your pooch, while helping the island's feral cats. The fee includes a sitting, up to one half hour, and one color portrait.
"We finally got the dogs working for the cats!" says Dellia Holodenschi, Cat Café program director. To make an appointment for a sitting, call Holodenschi at 513-1854
The event is one of many taking place across the country in honor of National Feral Cat Day, to bring awareness to the plight of the stray and feral cats.
The national day was launched by Alley Cat Allies, the national advocate for stray and feral cats, which is the foremost authority on a program called Trap-Neuter-Return, a humane method of care that improves the lives of outdoor cats.
In honor of National Feral Cat day, Holodenschi urges all individuals feeding strays to spay and neuter their “outside” felines. To help defray the cost of surgery and for any other information please call her at the above number.
