In April of 2017, the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) joined forces with Maddie's Fund®, the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program, and Maddie's® Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida to support the Million Cat Challenge (The Challenge).
The ASPCA will bring more national exposure and attention for the plight of vulnerable cats, in addition to their professional expertise.This is an unprecedented collaboration to turn shelters into the safe havens for cats that they always wanted to be.
Founded in 1866, the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) is the first animal welfare organization in North America. More than two million supporters strong, the ASPCA's mission is to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.
