Thanks to all of our high-fiving buddies who entered our contest. We were blown away by the amazing submissions we received this year. You helped us spread the word that cats are cool and that you can engage with them in ways you never thought possible. Greater Good Charities and The Jackson Galaxy Project is closer to their goal of finding shelter cats a forever home.
The results were close, but in the end, these three exceptional entries won the most votes.
First Place Grand Prize—Charlie, Tracer, Aven, Rocky, PJ and Oshkosh Area Humane Society.
- $5,000 cash grant for OAHS in Oshkosh, WI and a trip to attend Lil BUB’s birthday party, with the chance to meet Lil’ BUB and Jackson Galaxy!
“At the Oshkosh Area Humane Society, we know that all cats are trainable and that it empowers cats in shelters to give them meaningful ways to use their behavior to produce desired outcomes. Five of our adoptable cats and five of our fabulous staff teamed up to make this video entry for the contest, and several other cats in our care learned to high five but they were adopted so quickly that we couldn’t grab video of them before they went home with their new families! We enjoyed the experience of bonding together to make this video and are so proud of our cats.”
Second Place—Pip the Beach Cat and Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, Inc.
- $3,000 cash grant for BARCS in Baltimore, MD!
Third Place —Lime and Honor Animal Rescue
- $2,000 cash grant for Honor Animal Rescue in Bradenton, FL!
Thanks again to every participant! Your high-fives put a smile on our faces and are helping cats all over the country find their families.
