There are so many animal shelters around the world with dedicated volunteers helping strays find loving homes. The problem with so many shelters is that information that one shelter discovers often doesn’t reach other shelters that could also benefit. To resolve this problem, Dr. Julie Levy of the University of Florida and Dr. Kate Hurley of the University of California, Davis, are leading a new campaign called the Million Cat Challenge. The project’s goal is saving lives by improving the techniques shelters use to accept, house and adopt out cats.
In today’s world of instant communication around the world, it’s important for shelters to share life-saving techniques that other shelters could use to save the animals in their area. The more animals saved, the better off everyone will be.
