The Jackson Galaxy Project Kicks-Off 2nd Annual Cat Pawsitive National High-Five Day Contest


The best high-five wins a $5K grant & invite to Lil BUB’s birthday party with Jackson Galaxy!

Calling all Cat Lovers and High-Five Enthusiasts!


To celebrate the success of The Jackson Galaxy Project’s transformative Cat Pawsitive program, GreaterGood.org is announcing the second annual Cat Pawsitive National High-Five Day Contest.

Believe it or not, cats can be trained, and by teaching shelter cats our Cat Pawsitive techniques (including the signature “High-Five”), we can decrease stress, increase engagement, and raise adoption rates. Anyone can teach a cat to do a high-five—all it takes is a desirable “reinforcer” (your kitty’s favorite treat) and some patience. We even have easy-peasy instructions for you right here. We’re taking National High-Five Day back for the cats!

We Want to See Your Most Creative High-Fives!


From April 18th until May 16th,th, we’re asking shelter staff, volunteers, and supporters to share their best high-five photos and videos! The Cat Daddy himself, Jackson Galaxy, will pick his top 25 entries on May 20th. Voting will be open to the public between May 20th – June 2nd. The top 3 winners will be announced on June 3rd, 2019. Each winner will receive a donation to the shelter or rescue of their choice as follows:

  • First Place Grand Prize: $5,000 cash grant for the shelter or rescue of your choice AND a trip to Lil BUB’s birthday party, where you can meet BUB and Jackson Galaxy!
  • Second Place: $3,000 cash grant for the shelter or rescue of your choice.
