UPDATE: SCROLL DOWN FOR PHOTOS OF THE EVENT!
Hey there San Diego! Jackson's just wrapped shooting for season five of My Cat From Hell-- some episodes take place in your cool city by the bay -- but he's coming back for more.
What's Going On in San Diego?
The San Diego Humane Society & SPCA will host workshops and a big adoption event on Saturday, April 5, 2014. All workshops are to help get more shelter animals into forever homes. The day will also include book signings and meet & greets with the celebrity workshop presenters.
What's Jackson Doing There?
Jackson will share his visionary insights about how to proactively enrich the environments of shelter cats to increase adoptions, and help see every cat ‘uncaged.’ This marks the third event in his on-going "Cats Uncaged Tour." (The first two were in Seattle and Austin.)
