Big News: Announcing the First Weekly Winner of the 2015 Spring Beta Shelter Challenge Contest!

Please join us in congratulating The Cat House on the Kings in Parlier, California for winning the 5/4 - 5/10 2015 Spring Beta Shelter Challenge weekly prize of a $500 grant! Our trusted partners at www.greatergood.org will be contacting the organization regarding their prize. Congrats, again, to The Cat House on the Kings, and thank you to all who participated in this round. And don't forget, there's a second $500 grant up for grabs, so vote for you favorite shelter now!

Kittens, Kittens Everywhere!

It's that time of year, folks: kitten season! As adorable as they are, the truth is that there are too many wonderful cats out there already in need of forever homes. In the United States, more than three million pets are euthanized each year. The number of animals entering shelters is greater than the number of people willing to adopt them. Spaying or neutering cats makes sure the all-too-numerous population of unwanted kittens doesn't grow and gives cats and kittens already in shelters the best chance for adoption.

So let's pledge to put an end to unwanted litters! Greatergood.com partners with organizations across the country to provide spay and neutering procedures to cats in need.

The New and Vastly Improved Shelter Challenge is Here!
