Shelter of the Month

Each month a Shelter or Rescue Group is in the spotlight, with their great work being showcased here every #ShelterSunday. Plus, we set them up with a special opportunity to receive direct contributions AND a portion of proceeds from a fun product in Jackson’s store. It’s Jackson Galaxy’s #TeamCatMojo at work!
