PetsMart Charities and Winn Feline Foundation Partner to Help Shelter Cats


PetSmart Charities and the Winn Feline Foundation initiated a partnership to focus on learning more about shelter cats. I talk on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show HERE with Dr. David Haworth, president of PetSmart Charities in the U.S. and Canada and Dr. Vicki Thayer, executive director of the Winn Feline Foundation.

Celebrating 50 years, the nonprofit Winn Feline Foundation is essentially responsible for our understanding of most everything medical regarding cats by funding countless studies over those five decades.

PetSmart Charities supports ending homeless pets, including disaster relief, and celebrates the human-animal bond. 

PetSmart Charities has given the Winn Feline Foundation a generous grant to make it possible for the Winn Feline Foundation to support investigators who want to learn more about shelter cats and their needs. It’s not only the diseases of cats in shelters, but their stress levels are also important to pay attention to. There’s much  interplay between illness and fear, anxiety, and stress.
