Cats R Cool is all about teaching people what we already know ... that cats make great pets, excellent companions, and are full-fledged family members.
We are working to dispel negative stereotypes and make the situation for shelter cats better through public education, shelter outreach, and grants.

Educate the public about the severity of the cat overpopulation problem
Elevate the status of shelter cats using the “cool” factor of celebrity cat parents
Focus the energy of the already-engaged cat audience online to make a real difference for shelter cats
Create engaging social picture, video, and story contests to allow the public to share why their cats are cool
Host training sessions to educate shelter workers about working with cats
Provide much-needed cash-product grants to shelters to support their cat adoption efforts
Track cat adoption trends in shelters nationwide and work to increase adoption rates
Cats R Cool is offering vaccination grants for FVRCP, FRV, Rabies, and more. When shelter cats are vaccinated on intake, it leads to a healthier shelter population. We hope to increase adoption rates by helping shelters nationwide with their vaccination programs.
Unreal Lambskin shelter beds are soft, machine washable, foldable, and cuttable to fit the size of your shelter’s kennels. These beds will help keep the cats in your care more comfortable while in their kennels.
When shelter cats are provided with toys that appeal to their instinctive desire to stalk and capture prey, they are stimulated and their mental and emotional health is enriched. Cats R Cool is teaming up with several companies to provide a variety of enrichment toys to shelters nationwide.
By providing shelters with simple grooming products like ear, eye, and nose wipes, nail trimmers and brushes, we hope to increase the overall health of cats in shelters, and keep them looking their best for potential adopters.
Shelters and rescue groups may now apply for cash grants to offset the costs of spay and neuter surgeries for their adoptable cats.
The sturdy cardboard Cat Castle fits in most shelter kennels and gives cats a safe place to hide or sleep, away from their litter box, food, and water. Upon adoption, the convertible box becomes a carrier to transport cats to their new homes. The box can then be reassembled into its original configuration, helping acclimate the adopted cats to their new surroundings.
The Cats R Cool kennel scratcher easily ties to kennel doors. We believe providing shelter cats with an in-kennel scratcher reduces stress. Sending the scratcher home with newly adopted cats also helps with the transition into the adoptive home.
Cats R Cool is accepting applications for cat room renovations! We’ll send the Rescue U team to your facility to reimagine and reinvent your cat room. Rescue U will tailor the renovation to your specific needs, and help create safe, open areas for your cats to stretch, play, relax, and meet potential adopters outside of the kennel.
