With over three million cats entering animal shelters every year in the U.S., it takes all paws on deck to care for all these kitties. And groups like Catsnippers are doing everything in their power to reduce the population of stray and feral cats who call the streets and wilds of San Bernardino County, California, their home. But they couldn’t do it with you, cat lover!

Feeding all these felines takes mounds of food, and when you shop with iHeartCats, every single purchase funds donations for cats in need. Whether you purchase a cute cat shirt for yourself or supplements for your cat, that cart full of goodies gives compassion. Through our partnership with Greater Good Charities, we ensure shelter cats receive food and other necessities while waiting for their forever home or even when back on the streets after a successful TNR adventure. But just how does that food make it to rescue groups like Catsnippers?

Doing Good Through Working Together

The GOODS Program, a pet food distribution initiative in the Greater Good Charities family, has been keeping hungry bellies full for over a decade. This initiative turns the cash from your purchase into delicious food every shelter is happy to see. More food donated means more money to spend on medical care for sick and injured cats and TNR initiatives.

To date, the GOODS Program has delivered over 578 million meals to shelters and rescues nationwide. That’s more than 6,000 truckloads delivered to hungry animals! And all this food makes it possible for the cat lovers of Catsnippers to pay for more spay and neuter surgeries, which in turn means fewer kittens born in the wild.

“Our Mission is to spay and neuter as many cats and dogs as possible to reduce overpopulation and keep animals out of shelters,” said Yvette of Catsnippers.

“Catsnippers offers free or low cost spay, neuter, vaccinations and educational services to Southern California communities in need.”

“We believe that safe, high volume sterilization combined with trap and release efforts is the best method of population control.”

But getting fixed doesn’t mean you aren’t hungry, so the kitties cared for Catsnippers are so happy when the food trucks roll in. And while they can’t say thank you, every feline with a full tummy from a GOODS donation appreciates that you shop with purrpose!
