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.

Portalmania 2020

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 is able to make available more than 1,500 portals for free. This is not a raffle, or a contest, or a sweepstakes... this is a giveaway!

The opportunity to receive free portals is open to all Million Cat Challengers. Before completing and submitting the application linked below, your organization must be registered and have updated data through 2019 with Million Cat Challenge here at www.millioncatchallenge.org. The portal request must be submitted by the director of your organization or the person who has the authority to install the portals.

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