You can improve and save the lives of shelter cats around the country!
Despite high adoption rates recently, many cats in the US are still stuck in shelters. In these unfamiliar and overwhelming environments, cats seldom have space to exhibit normal behavior like stretching and fully extending their body so are more prone to depression and illness.
Fortunately, there's a simple way to reduce all of these problems for cats in shelters—cat portals. Installing these clever closable windows in kennel walls allows cats to move from space to space, giving them more freedom. Research shows that this reduces stress and disease, and creates far better outcomes for cats in shelters awaiting their forever homes.
Shelters that have already installed the portals share nothing but excitement for the improvement they see in the cats in their care. Staff at the Calgary Humane Society say, "Once the portals were done, we were quite amazed at how quickly we saw improvement in the cats' overall well-being. Stress-related illnesses such as URI dropped, staff indicated they (the cats) seemed livelier with less scratching and biting."
Because of all this, our Jackson Galaxy Project is partnering with Team Shelter USA and the Million Cat Challenge to retrofit shelters across America with cat portals and improve cats' lives and outcomes. Thanks to a special offer from Shor-line to match all donations, just $40 covers the cost of buying and installing a portal.
You can help. Give today to provide shelter cats with more freedom and better health, so they'll find happy forever homes.
