Canines, Cats and Cabaret Bring Music, Laughter and Awareness to a Great Cause.

Local performers in the Orlando area come together to help the Orange County Animal Service in awareness and fundraising needs.

On Sunday, August 25th at the Orlando Repertory Theater local performers and technicians from Disney, Universal Studios and the Orlando entertainment community came together to help the Orange county Animal Services in raising awareness and assistance to the plight of homeless animals in Canines, Cats & Cabaret 3.  This popular local and fundraiser event provides entertainment from puppetry acts to Broadway performances focusing on the issue of homeless and abandoned animals here in the Orlando area and those that work diligently to help and make a difference.

The event was the brainchild of Cid Stoll a local volunteer and animal lover.  After seeing the needs of many local shelters and knowing the difficulty in getting funding Cid decided to put her energy and creative talent together and created Canines, Cats & Cabaret.  Cid’s reason for the passion behind this event “We put our passion and talent into this because animals can’t do it for themselves, yet they give all of themselves to us.”

Canines, Cats & Cabaret this year consisted of twelve acts consisting of vocal, theatrical, and dance and puppetry talent.  The event also had raffles, photo opportunities with the Orange County Animal Service’s mascot Barker Bones as well as information and adoption opportunities.  This year the event was able to raise over $4000.00 at the event as well as additional donations via online donations.  The proceeds from the event will help build additional exercise facilities as well as provide additional technical needs to help with adoptions.

Cid Stoll goal besides fundraising is to also get the awareness out there regarding the issues of homeless and abandoned animals in the Orange County area.  “Do to economical and pet over population the number of abandoned and homeless animals in Orange County has increased dramatically.  Awareness and education is important and doing events like this helps to spread that awareness.”

Canines, Cats & Cabaret is already in preparation for next year and as Cid Stoll says “Every year it’s like doing the Christmas pageant and you start planning for next year at intermission.”  Cid hopes this event will grow and that the outcome of the event will offer both fun, friendships, but most importantly awareness.
