Baldwinsville On Tuesday, Feb. 28, all central New York locations of UNO Chicago Grill (Clay, Fayetteville, Carousel Mall) will participate in “Dine to be kind,” a one-day event that raises money to enable the CNY Cat Coalition to continue to fund spay and neuter assistance programs for the cats they rescue.
The group’s second annual “Dine To Be Kind” takes place on World Spay Day as part of an international campaign to promote the life-saving benefits of spay and neuter programs for cats (and dogs). Whether it’s lunch or dinner, it’s a simple and enjoyable opportunity to help animals. In fact, many workplaces order take-out for lunch on World Spay Day, because to-go orders also help animals in need.
All the public is asked to do is present a voucher (available at Petsmart in Clay, Fairmount, Dewitt or visit cnycatcoalition.org) and patronize the UNO’s of your choice on that day. Uno’s will donate up to 20 percent from each customers check to the organization.
Saving lives has never been easier and eating out has never felt so good.
Spaying or neutering pets improves their health and behavior, and lessens the burden of animal overpopulation on both shelters and taxpayers. Thanks to the CNY Cat Coalition’s efforts in 2011, more than 1,700 cats were altered, preventing hundreds of unwanted litters. All proceeds from the Dine To Be Kind event will be used to continue this work.
The CNY Cat Coalition is a non-profit volunteer organization of individuals and feline animal welfare groups from across the Central New York region. CNYCC provides sterilization and vaccination assistance, operates a pet food pantry, recruits foster homes for cats, and promotes healthy cats/kittens for adoption on Petfinders. Additionally, the group is also one of Petsmart’s Adoption Center partners. For more information, contact the Coalition Helpline at 289-2287 or visit cnycatcoalition.org.
