WHO Cat Depot, is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 no-kill, free-roaming facility, dedicated to helping homeless animals. Cat Depot’s mission is to save lives, find loving homes, and provide the resources and education to improve the destiny of homeless cats.
WHAT “The Friskies,” the brand’s major award contest honored internet cat videos with awards of $25,000 in cash prizes to the makers of the best original cat videos of 2012. Due to the tremendous success and high activity in The Friskies video contest, Friskies® is donating up to 625,000 cans of cat food to 25 cat charity organization partners, or 25,000 cans for each organization, including Cat Depot.
“We are so very grateful for the donation of Friskies! The cheers from staff and volunteers could be heard down the block when the first shipment of 5,000 cans arrived. So, to receive an additional 20,000 cans is truly a blessing,” said executive director, Shelley Thayer. “Due to Friskies incredible generosity, many tummies will no longer go hungry.”
WHY Friskies is dedicated to raising awareness and providing donations of much-needed cat food so Cat Depot may continue to serve the local community and provide future cat owners with their very own awesome cat moments.
