Charity Navigator Celebrates International Cat Day

We all know that the internet is at least 99% cat related memes, but did you know that August 8th is International Cat Day? Let's spend the day celebrating our small, adorable companions that bring so much joy to our lives!


Started in 2002 by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (3-Star), International Cat Day to promote the adoption of cats from shelters, take today to recognize and appreciate all the joy that cats have brought to our lives. Don't have a cat? Why not save a life, by visiting a local animal shelter and rescuing your ideal feline companion?

Alternatively, you can support any one of the wonderful organizations working to help save the lives of cats locally and around the world, such as Alley Cat Allies (4-Star) or Cat Adoption Team (3-Stars). And while we're at it, why not show a little love to our domesticated cats larger cousins by supporting organizations like Big Cat Rescue (4-Stars).
