Even though 28% of the 128 million households in the U.S. own cats, nearly 1.4 million cats every year fail to find loving homes. If we can get an additional 1% of U.S. households to adopt a cat, we could keep these loving family members alive and out of shelters.
At Dr. Elsey’s, we’re taking action and need your help! It’s time to unlock the Power of Purrsuasion to convince a friend, family member or stranger to take the next step toward adopting a cat.
During 2019, Dr. Elsey’s visited Meow Parlour in NYC to help find forever homes for its furry residents, while “purrsuading” the minds of those hesitant to adopt on the benefits of owning a cat. After a successful month in the Big Apple, where a record-breaking number of cats were adopted, Dr. Elsey’s brought the movement to both Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.! During a summertime stay at CatCafe Lounge in LA, the Power of Purrsuasion helped increase adoptions by 50%. While at Crumbs & Whiskers in D.C. the monthly adoption rate nearly doubled with 28 cats finding a new forever home.
After this series of successful adoption events across the country, Dr. Elsey’s is happy to share we are launching the Power of Purrsuasion $10,000 Cat Café Makeover in partnership with PetFusion to help support three cat cafés around the United States. Through online voting, one lucky cat café will receive a donation compliments of PetFusion to utilize in facility renovations to upgrade their space in pursuit of increased adoption rates.
Beginning in March, visit drelseys.com/makeover to cast your vote! Learn more about the #PowerofPurr and participating cat cafés by visiting Dr. Elsey’s page on Instagram.
