We adore cats. It's as simple as that. The fact is, shelters in America are packed, so much so that animals are euthanized because there isn't enough space. We can't stand that thought and want to do everything we can to help. Every kitten in a shelter is someone's best friend in waiting.
Sparklepop makes direct donations to small and medium sized non-profit organizations helping save kitties across the U.S. These organizations are researched and hand-picked by Sparklepop's founder, Megan, and are based in U.S. cities that need the most help. These aren't gargantuan organizations where you don't know for sure what donations are used for. The funds are going directly to medicine, food, and expanding beds and spaces to take in and help more cats.
What started out as a love for helping kitties in one lady's home, turned into a large organization and sprawling kitty oasis. Friends of Felines Rescue Center take in kitties that society neglects due to mental or physical disabilities. They get them medical help and love on them constantly, allowing them to stay indefinitely if necessary. No cages here! You can watch their 24/7 live stream to see their kitties running around having the time of their lives.Visit Website

These hard working people are fighting to reform shelters and end senseless euthanization. They focus on the root of the issue: over population and need for educating local governments and communities. They spay/neuter thousands of cats each year to prevent litters that will end up in a kill shelter as well as care for the current feral population.Visit Website

Town cats steps in and helps save these little guys. They don't turn any kitty away, no matter how dire the situation. They have 2 small locations and created a huge network of foster families that they educate and support to expand their cat capacity.Visit Website

Milo was found as a kitten in an urban park. It seems he must have been abandoned soon after adoption. Fortunately, we found him, scooped him up, and he now hangs out at the Sparklepop offices as our cheif director of pets. He's pretty amazing at his job. He's warm, well fed, and has almost complete command of the premises.
