Sadly, there are more cats that need good homes than people able and willing to provide good homes for cats. That’s why the Jackson Galaxy Project, a program of, is teaming up with the Petco Foundation, and Halo pet food for the first Cat Pawsitive National High-Five Day Shelter Contest.

The goal is to take pictures of cats giving people a high five. The grand prize winner will receive a $5000 cash grant and 10,000 bowls of Halo pet food for an animal shelter/rescue of their choice, and a post shared on Jackson Galaxy’s Facebook page. The four runner-ups will each receive 10,000 bowls of Halo pet food, courtesy of and, for a shelter/rescue of their choice.
