Calling all cat lovers and High-Five Enthusiasts!

To celebrate the success of The Jackson Galaxy Project’s transformative Cat Pawsitive program, Greater Good Charities is announcing the 4th 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, along with an instructional video you can watch below!

We Want to See Your Most Creative High-Fives!
On April 21, post your most creative high-fives for a chance to win! Jackson will select his favorites and winners will be announced on April 22. 
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.

  • Second Place: $3,000 cash grant for the shelter or rescue of your choice.

  • Third Place: $2,000 cash grant for the shelter or rescue of your choice.

The contest is open to everyone! Whether you work at a shelter or rescue or you just love cats, YOU can enter to win big for the shelter or rescue of your choice. Don’t have a cat and want to participate? Borrow a friend’s cat and teach them some new tricks!
