September 1, 2004 On September 4, Yonkers children will hold a bake sale from 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m at the corner of Roberts Avenue and Valley Avenue near North Broadway, to benefit stray animals in the area. A goodie basket will also be raffled off. They are actively seeking donations of baked good s to assist with this effort. They call themselves "Kids for Cats."

The funds raised will go toward low-cost spay/neuter certificates provided by the Animal Welfare League (914) 948-2094. The children have been feeding stray animals in the area, and realize that the cat colonies multiply rapidly unless the animals are neutered; they are commencing a ‘trap/neuter/release (TNR) program, knowing these animals have a harsh and difficult life on the street. Two of the children have veterinary aspirations, and there are wildlife rehabilitators in the family as well.

Kiley Blackman of Animal Defenders of Westchester, who saw their ad for baked goods in a local pet store said “These children are our future; and I am overjoyed to hear about compassion, awareness, and a desire to help others starting at such an early age. The animals, and society, are blessed to have such wonderful young citizens.”
