*** UPDATE! ***
Thanks to everyone for coming out for this event! You're part of the movement to see ALL Cats Uncaged! Scroll to the bottom of this post for some pictures....
WHAT’S GOING ON IN NEW YORK?
Finally, Cats Uncaged come to the East Coast! The North Shore Animal League America in Port Washington, NY will host workshops and a big adoption event on Sunday, August 3, 2014. The ultimate purpose of each workshop is to increase adoption rates and help get more shelter animals into forever homes. In short, to help save lives! The day will also include book signings, special merchandise sales, photo opportunities, and meet & greets with the celebrity workshop presenters.
WHAT’S JACKSON DOING THERE?
Jackson will share his philosophy and approach to enriching the environments of shelter cats, which in turn, increases adoptions and helps get every cat ‘uncaged.’ This is the fourth event in his on-going “Cats Uncaged Tour.” (The first three were in Seattle, Austin, and San Diego.)
