Emancipet, the nonprofit on a mission to make veterinary care affordable and accessible for all pet owners, was featured on “Cat Daddy” Jackson Galaxy’s television show My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet on Oct. 20. If you missed it, click here to stream the full episode.
The episode was shot in Philadelphia, where Emancipet has a clinic, and featured CEO Amy Mills and Emancipet staff working with other nonprofits and volunteers to trap/neuter/release community cats (also known as feral cats). It was an emotional and dramatic episode and was the finale of this season of My Cat From Hell. During the show, Emancipet announced a new initiative and fundraising effort to help even more community cats and their caretakers in Philadelphia and the other four cities where Emancipet has clinics, and to help Emancipet expand to even more cities across the U.S.
“Community cats matter, and the bond between them and their caretakers is evident in the show. Emancipet is all about protecting the human-animal bond, and helping keep community cats healthy is part of our work,” Mills says. “We are grateful to Jackson Galaxy and Animal Planet for helping to spread the message about Emancipet and our work caring for animals in underserved communities.”
Community cats share a profound bond with the dedicated people who feed, care, and love them. That’s why Emancipet is launching a campaign to spay/neuter and vaccinate 500 more community cats in Philadelphia– all at no cost to their caretakers.
Emancipet is asking for charitable gifts today because these incredible people need help to continue this important work. Their fundraising goal is $42,000, and they’re off to a great start with a $10,000 pledge from the Andrew Delaney Foundation.
