Many thanks to our longtime supporter, Nestle Purina PetCare Company. Purina believes pets and people are better together, which is why they support events like the Cuddle Me Festival. But their support doesn’t start and stop here, Purina supports the SF SPCA’s mission to put pets and the people who love them together every day. Purina generously donates all of the food and litter for the 5,000+ animals at the SF SPCA waiting for loving people like you to take them home. Meow, woof, thank you Purina!

Thank you to our friends at CatVideoFest who share the joy of cat videos with the world and help rescues and shelters while doing it!
