June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month! You Can Help Along With Cat’s Pride

Love it? Pls Share it!

June is National Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month. Did you know it is estimated that 10 to 70 million stray dogs and cats live on the streets and 5.4 million dogs and cats end up in animal shelters in the U.S. annually? While about half are adopted, the other half is euthanized due to lack of space in shelters.

For National Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month, Cat’s Pride has teamed up with actress Katherine Heigl and is donating a portion of the proceeds of every purchase of Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light Ultimate Care to the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, an animal advocacy organization Katherine founded in her brother’s memory! 

Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light Ultimate Care

Cat’s Pride, the only cat litter recommended by the American Humane Association™, started the lightweight litter trend and continues to lead the way with their latest innovation, Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light Ultimate Care lightweight cat litter! This litter is 50% lighter and is formulated with highly absorbent minerals and no fillers, guaranteeing powerful odor absorption for 10 days of freshness! It’s also the best-performing lightweight litter with the strongest, tight clumps that are easy to scoop. Plus, the no-filler litter means less dust, less tracking and less clean up for you and kitty. Ultimate Care cat litter is available in a 10-pound jug, in both Scented and Unscented hypoallergenic varieties.

5 Ways To Help During National Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month and Beyond

Adopt a Cat from Your Local Shelter

Instead of buying a cat from a store, adopt one from your local shelter! And don’t forget, while kittens are adorable and playful, older cats need adopting too! All too often kittens are the first to be adopted, leaving behind the adult cats. This is because people want a frisky, playful and loving kitten. What people don’t realize is that adult cats can be just as playful, loving and enjoyable.

Encourage Others to Adopt

If you know of someone looking for a cat, encourage them to go to their local shelter and adopt. 


If you can’t adopt, donate to your local shelter. This doesn’t have to be money either. Many shelters are in great need of food, litter, towels, toys and other supplies. Call your local shelter or check their website for a wish list of their needs.


Even if you can’t adopt right now, you can help by volunteering at your local shelter or rescue. Even donating just 1 hour of your time can help, and it will give the shelter animals some much-needed love and attention. 

Get Creative!

Feeling crafty? Use fabric, yarn, recyclables, and imagination to bring lots of much-needed fun into the lives of local shelter and rescue pets. There’s no end to the fun-filled toys and cat supplies you can make. Try tying a long piece of ribbon onto a bamboo stick to make a cat distractor! Or wrap a board with some rope for a DIY Cat Scratching Post!

I already donate cat food and have offered to foster kittens that need bottle feeding (clearly I am insane since we already have 6 cats at home!)

LOL! You sound like me! I have an indoor cat, but when we moved to ths house there were 2 strays. I've adopted them both as my outdoor cats, and the female has already had 1 litter of 3 kittens. Unfortunately, I'm having a hard time getting her to let me put her in a cage so I can have her spayed, and now she is pregnant again. Hopefully, this time, if I put her in a box with her kittens I'll be able to get her to the vet.

I donated some extra pet beds to my local animal shelter, which they really needed.

Thank you! That is awesome! I wish more people would realize that there is more they can give besides money. Don't get me wrong, money helps! But these shelters also need food, litter, blankets, newpaper, toys, volunters...the list goes on and on!

I have three dogs and two adult cats and one kitten and they are all rescues from our local shelter. Contact your local shelters and see if they need old towels, food or toys for these fur babies. We donate all the time to our shelter and they also need people to walk the dogs and keep the cats company.

That is awesome! Every cat I've ever had came from shelters or were strays I took in. And yes, voluntering time just to spend a bit with the animals can make such a difference!

I would like to donate newspapers, cat toys, food and treats.
