Win a $1000 Catification Makeover for Your Fave Shelter


A recent trend in shelter design is to create cat-friendly vertical spaces that allow cats to climb and perch as they do in the wild. Adoption rates improve dramatically — cats aren’t caged, are less likely to appear scared and skittish, crouched behind bars.

Unfortunately, it’s not within the budgets of many shelters to transform their spaces. But you can help your favorite shelter win a “catification” through a contest hosted by Hauspanther and sponsored by Vertical Cat.

The winning shelter scores a Catification makeover, which includes a consultation with Jackson Galaxy (My Cat from Hell) and Hauspanther’s Kate Benjamin, and $1,000 worth of Vertical Cat’s climbing products.

For details on how you can nominate your favorite shelter, go to Hauspanther. Entries close August 9th.
