During the month of July, Busy Philipps and Purina Cat Chow are encouraging cat people to help reach the goal of donating five million meals, to Rescue Bank www.rescuebank.org, a non-profit that collects and distributes high-quality pet food and other supplies to animal welfare organizations across the country.
With these critical donations, hundreds of shelter and rescue partners will be able to reallocate funding for critical veterinary care to increase the adoption of healthy pets. One meal can make the difference in helping a shelter cat – and during the month of July, every cat person can make a difference in the lives of shelter cats by just feeding their own cat.
Since 2013, Purina Cat Chow has supported animal shelters across the country and has donated more than $845,000 in food, supplies and renovations to advance the rescue, nutrition and adoption of cats in shelters.
Rescue Bank is a non-profit organization that operates on a national food bank model to collect and distribute high-quality pet food and other supplies to a network of pre-qualified animal welfare organizations throughout the United States. These organizations are able to use the savings from their food budgets for critical veterinary care to increase the adoption of healthy pets.
Each year, approximately 3.4 million United States cats are taken in by animal shelters and only half of those cats are adopted.1
