Too many companion cats do not receive the care they need and deserve. At CATalyst, we know it’s a team effort to create a lasting impact on feline health and care, and through our partnerships and health-centric programs we can facilitate access to care and connect more cats with a lifetime of healthcare.
Individuals and organizations are invited to apply for grants of up to $20,000 to fund efforts that increase the medicalization of companion cats. Areas of interest could include telemedicine, animal welfare/sheltering, data collection, access to care and or preventive care.

- Focus Area: In its pilot year, this program will focus on a broad focus area: initiatives to increase access to care and subsequent medicalization of cats.
