Freekibble Cares: Featured Cause for April 2021

Help Save the Lives of Shelter Cats With Cat Pawsitive!

Lynette Baguette learning with a Cat Pawsitive trainer helping her become more adoptable!

Everyone can agree that shelters are stressful places for cats, which often leads them to shy away or act out in fear or aggression. Sometimes cats like Lynette Baguette are overlooked for younger cats or kittens. This is where Greater Good signature programs, like Cat Pawsitive, comes in to help “less adoptable” cats catch the eye of potential new families by helping them feel more comfortable.

Developed by Jackson Galaxy and in partnership with The Animal Rescue Site & Petco Foundation, Cat Pawsitive uses volunteers to teach cats through positive reinforcement, clicker training techniques. These Cat Pawsitive trainers take shy cats to give them the confidence they need to come to the front of their kennels and show off their skills. Not to mention the training provides them with enough mental stimulation to deter any destructive behavior or hyperactivity.

Since April 15th is National High-Five Day, we’d like your help supporting this wonderful program!
With your help, we can save even more cats!

For as long as I can remember, my main passion in life has been animals. I started Freekibble.com in 2008 to help feed shelter pets. To date, we've donated over 21 million meals to homeless dogs and cats across the country. In large part, this has been possible because of the amazing support of the Freekibble community.

Freekibble Cares features causes each month focused on improving the lives of all different types of animals, showcasing groups doing important work for animals and asking that people support them. 100% of your donations go directly to that cause … it all makes a difference!
