What's better than a life-saving cat portal?? A FREE life-saving cat portal!

Every shelter cat should have double-compartment housing if they are in a cage. Providing at least 8 square feet of floor space in cages for cats decreases stress and therefore the incidence of upper respiratory infections. Cats have room to stretch out, to eat and sleep away from their bathroom area, and show their best selves to potential adopters.

Portals are not just better for cats... they're also better for staff. They're easy to install and have a door that can open and close to allow for proper spot cleaning. You can find portal installation instructions at www.sheltermedicine.com/library/resources/?r=cat-portals-order-information-and-instruction-for-installation.

We have seen and documented the power of portals for years. Now that many shelters have reduced capacity as a result of the pandemic, we know it's a good time to install portals in those empty cages. Thanks to some very generous sponsors, the Million Cat Challenge has made available more than 1,500 portals for free.

The opportunity to receive free portals was open to all Million Cat Challengers. To qualify, the organization had to be registered and have updated data through 2019 with Million Cat Challenge.

Thank you to our generous U.S. sponsors for making this possible!

As with the original Portalmania, more shelters requested portals than we could provide. And just like last time, we couldn't say no. Luckily, GreaterGood.org has stepped in to match donations to try to purchase every portal requested. Make a donation or send out this link to your shelter's supporters and let's keep the portal magic going! https://bit.ly/3gKwJ93
