Help Give World’s Best Cat Litter™ to Cats in Need – January

Hi, everyone!

First and foremost, thanks everyone for spreading the word and helping with this effort! We were truly amazed with the turnout and participation from everyone in providing great charities and groups so far. We were more than happy to deliver a couple bags of World’s Best Cat Litter™ to the charities and groups selected during our last giveaway.

Guess what? This time we are raising the stakes even higher!

Instead of two winners we will have five! Just like last time, we invite you to leave a comment on this post and tell us why we you are recommending your choice. We will then draw five submissions on January 26, and send each a 34-lb bag of cat litter. And we’ll post the names of our winners—and the people who recommended them—in upcoming blogs!

Ok, you know what to do! Tell us who you want to receive some litter this month!

Very Best,
— World’s Best Cat Litter™

    I'd like to recommend the One at a time pet rescue in Ambridge PA., they're good people doing good work and need all the help they can get.

    I'd love to see the TLC Animal Shelter in Digby Nova Scotia Canada receive some free litter. They are a small no-kill shelter that relys solely on the generosity of others. They receive NO government funding. They are doing a great job and I have adopted most of my family members from them!

    I want to recommend the Pasco Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). These people are tireless in helping pet owners, stray cats, and the community. I always look forward to taking in my two beautiful kitties for maintenance, just so I can see "who" they have up for adoption that week. And they ALWAYS seem to find good homes for the rescued cats. I also wish to add, World's Best Cat Litter is absolutely the best invention EVER for cat owners. It's like not having a litter box in the house. Great product.

    I recommend

    298 Walton Ave
    South Orange, NJ

    A no-kill shelter

  • I recommend the Worcester Animal Rescue League in Worceser, MA, where I volunteer. It's a no-kill shelter that operates solely on private donations and does not receive any state or federal aid, so we rely on the public for supplies.

    Randolph Animal Pound
    Sussex Turnpike
    Randolph, NJ 07869

    They have an overcrowded back room with many adult cats
    who will probably never get adopted. SO FOR THE CATS WHO LIVE THERE
    PLEASE DONATE THIS SPECIAL LITTER (it will help with the bad smells)

    Marley's Cat Tales in Cary, NC, does a wonderful job. They have great fosters who love and cherish cats until they find them a forever home. I think their motto says it all:
    Marley's Cat Tales – "Where every tail has a happy ending!"

    Please consider Marin Cat Connection. All of the cats in their program live in foster homes, and the foster homes use The World's Best Cat Litter. This organization started because the community needed a no-kill shelter where perfectly adoptable cats could have a chance to find a good home. The adoption counselor is wonderful at matching felines with humans, and the successful adoption rate is very high. Every cat in the program has been examined by a vet, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, dewormed, etc. (The funds to provide medical care, food and litter comes from garage sales, raffles and 2 mail campaigns each year– they receive no money from the government. Everyone involved with this group is a volunteer– no paid employees.) When a kitty goes to a new home, The World's Best Cat Litter is always the litter recommended.

  • I read about a shelter in WV that had a terrible fire recently, so I would suggest Ritchie Country Humane Society:

  • I would like to recommend Second Chance for Strays Inc.
    Clearwater, Florida. They were the ones I got my Jeannie from. They are mostly a group of people who foster and find homes for cats. It is a wonderful thing they do, and I think they don't get enough attention in the area. What a great group they are.

    I would like to recommend Animal Lifeline Inc., P.O. Box 1034, Bellmore, NY, 11710. They are mainly a spay/neuter organization, and have arrangements with local vets for discounted prices. They will help people trap if necessary, set up the vet appointments, foster when necessary, do adoptions, etc. They also have fundraisers quite a few times a year to help with the costs. And the nicest part of Animal Lifeline, Inc…they are completely volunteer run.

  • Emily

    I'd like to recommend Little Red Door Animal Shelter in Chicago- a great little no kill shelter that can use the help!

  • gisela

    I would like to recommend the Humane Society of Bergen County located in Lyndhurst, NJ. They are a no-kill animal shelter.

    I would like to submit Forever Home Pet Rescue out of LA/OC here in rainy California. Gloria and company are wonderful people and I adopted the most perfect cymric kitten from the in fall of 2008. It was misting the day I picked her up, hence, her name, Misty. They rescue, rehome, and foster and donations of any kind are always welcomed.

    I would like to recommend Strays&Others in CT – a rescue group entirely managed by its volunteers
    and relying completely on public donations and support. They rent a space in a private home in
    which are housed 20 kittens and cats as well as having another 30 housed with foster parents !
    All these cats are fortunate enough to have a caring sanctuary where they receive good food,
    warmth and lots of cuddles and they do get through a lot of cat litter!!

    This person rescues about 40 cats per week and has a network of foster homes.

    Please consider PAWS shelter on Main Ave. in Norwalk, CT. As with most shelters, the overcrowding is tremendous. With 4 cats of my own, i know how effective and fabulous The World's Best Kitty Litter is in eradicating odors and very easy clean-up. Receiving such a gift would be very helpful to the animals and humans at PAWS. It's virtually an all-volunteer army at PAWS.
    They do such good work and tirelessly help the ever increasing amount of dogs and cats that appear at their doorstep daily.
    Please Please consider helping PAWS in Norwalk, Connecticut!
    Thank you!

    I would like to recommend the following:

    They are based in Los Angeles, California. I've seen many of their adoptable friends at local pet supplies. I've asked them questions about getting another cat, diseases, etc & they've always been very helpful.

    I nominate Rikki's refuge. It's a no kill shelter and takes in all types of animals, in sickness and in health

    I would like to recommend:
    "Holy Cat Whiskers" cat rescue (Madison, OH.)

    This group of dedicated cat lovers rescues feral
    cats, does trap/spay/neuter/release, and also treats
    ferals with injuries. They have rescued and turned
    many ferals into house pets, and placed them in loving
    homes. 5 of these ferals turned 'house kitties' live at
    the owners' "Pet sitting" storefront, where they rule the
    roost and entertain the clientel. They do such great work,
    I can't recommend them enough. Contact: Leslie Lawrence

  • Cats R Us is a no-kill rescue group of wonderful people in the Annapolis area of Maryland. The initial effort was to focus on TNR and management of feral colonies, and the group now includes two small shelters and many fosters as well. As adoptions slow due to holidays and economic issues, every bit of help is appreciated!

    More information and terrific kitties up for adoption can be found at

    Friends of Michagan Animals Rescue in Bellville, Michigan is the most deserving rescue. Marcy and Pete, the founders, moved out of a nice home into an older home on a parcel large enough to build their own, 100% no-kill, all volunter run animal shelter to stop the euthanasia of strays in their community. Noe, they ar working on another buidling jsut for the cats. No wher will you find such a "happy" shelter, where visitors and volunteers love to come and play with and care for the animals while they await new homes.

    I would like to recommend O'Malley Alley Cat organization of Nacogdoches, Texas to receive the much needed litter. This fantastic organization has made themselves heard in a very big way in our small East Texas town and surrounding county. While most people in this area believe that animals are indispensable, this organization makes people understand that animals are an important part of every person's life. They have a very successful trap-neuter-release-manage program and have saved hundreds of cats and kittens through the T-N-R-M program and through foster care. They truly care about all of the animals that they rescue and make sure that they go to very good and loving homes. I adopted two kittens from this organization last year, and they are both the joys of my life. They have helped me cut the costs of vaccinations and spaying/neutering for my two kittens and the leader of the organization even calls to check-up on the little ones. I wish every organization could receive litter and I know that O'Malley Alley Cat would be so appreciative to receive this wonderful gift. Thank you for helping out organizations in need…more companies need to get on the bandwagon with you.

    I'd like to suggest the Bellevue, Washington Humane Society as an organization that does great work and could use some help. We benefitted personally last year when this organization helped us with a female cat we had rescued who had a litter of kittens. The Bellevue Humane Society helped us by accepting some of the kittens and providing a free spay for the rescued mom. We could not afford it all, and were extremely grateful for the help!

    Purrfect Companions in Albany, New York! We're very small, and most of our money comes from us. I and the other members love your litter, and would love to have it for our foster babies!

  • Tabby's Place: a Cat Sanctuary is an extraordinary place. They rescue cats from hopeless situations (primarily from high-kill shelters nationwide) and care for them in a one-of-a-kind sanctuary that is cage free and just bursting with love.

    I would like to support the Union County Humane Society of Monroe, NC–they do great work, and I would love to adopt all their animals, but can't.

  • Tammy

    I would like to recommend Claws Cat Rescue of Sussex, NJ – They are one of the largest no-kill cat shelters in NJ. They rely only on donations to keep up and running. They take in many stray/abandoned cats and kittens and give them a safe place to live until they find their forever homes. They treat each and every cat like it was their own. They are a true cat rescue.

    Anjellicle Cats Rescue in New York City ( is a wonderful organization run by caring cat lovers. I adopted Alice from them this past July and we are both grateful for the tender loving care she got before finding her forever home (where she uses — and loves — World's Best Cat Litter).

    Anjellicle Cats Rescue is a no-kill, all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose goal is to help make New York City a no kill city.

    For over ten years, our Hell's Kitchen-based organization has been a lifeline for abandoned, stray, and neglected cats and kittens. In addition, we work closely with the ACC to pull out those who are in danger of being euthanized. Each one is welcomed with kindness and medical attention, with the goal of placement into a permanent, loving home.

    Spay and Neuter is the way to go and I support Kittico Cat Rescue in Dallas, Texas. Reduce the number who hit the shelters. Hope they win some litter!

    I believe that the Dearborn Animal Shelter, located in Dearborn, MI is deserving of help from WBCL. This past summer, they had two terrible cases of animal hoarders, and are now totally packed to the whiskers with kitties. They are doing the best they can and have even rented trailers to house all of the kitties. They do a great job raising awareness about animal homelessness, and even have a kitty-cam for people to view their activity throughout the day! The Dearborn Animal Shelter has a dream of building a state-of-the-art facility not only to shelter animals, but also provide medical care and educate the public. Dearborn is also a city that has suffered economically. This city once thrived with auto industry, but with the downturn of the "Big Three", came downsizing, layoffs, and job cuts for both hourly workers and salaried employees. The community still gives generously, but still needs more help. That is why I believe that the Dearborn Animal Shelter deserves a little help from World's Best Cat Litter!

    The Dakin Shelter is by far very deserving of help from you. They are a small but powerful shelter in the small town of Leverett, Western Massachusetts. When the MSPCA closed its Western New England Animal Care and Adoption Center in Springfield MA in late March 2009, Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society arranged to purchase the building, re-open it, and embark on an unprecedented campaign to put an end to the putting to sleep of adoptable homeless animals. Please help them!

    I would like to recommend Saving Graces 4 Felines, a non-profit organization formed in Greenville NC to help stray, abandoned, and feral cats who have no home and are left to fend for themselves. They do a fantastic job working with our local Pet Smart to adopt these unwanted cats. They work to trap and neuter feral cats to keep feral reproduction to a minimum.

  • I recommend Friends of Wayne Animals, Wayne – NJ. We do work all over Northern NJ and love Worlds Best! In 2009 FOWA took in 486 animals (cats and dogs). We placed 35 cats into safe haven sanctuaries. This is a huge expense for FOWA since we make a donation every time we place a cat. In 2009 we donated $27,750 to sanctuaries. Please help us continue our good work! All our cats and dogs are in foster homes and we absolutely a “no-kill” organization.

    I would like to recommend Paws n Claws Vet Clinic in Sanger, TX. Dr. Wallace is not your ordinary vet, she continually takes in animals in need of homes, many are sick and abondoned. She graciously gives them all the medical attention they need and refuses to give up on these little guys. She works hard to find them all homes. I have one of two kittens out of a litter of four that survived, any other vet I know would have given up on these guys. She has even bottle fed most of them from birth. Not only does she do everything she can, she also gives them their shots and spays/neuters them free of charge. She also runs low cost programs and helps many low income pet owners. She never asks anything more than that you provide the animal a good home and be sure to have it fixed. We live in an area that does NOT have a "no kill" shelter, however, she provides just that for these little guys. Please help her continue to do such wonderful work! We love her.

  • Wayside Waifs in Kansas City is the yes kill shelter that enables all the no-kill shelters to turn away the animals they do. We get all our animals there…..

    The Humane Society of Southwest Washington in Vancouver WA, accepts ALL animals regardless of condition or health, including puppy mill survivors and exotics like snakes, alligators, ferrets, rabbits, birds, pocket pets, etc. The more unusual animals are sent to various rescue groups. The Society's "all welcome" policy allows the no kill shelters in the area to turn away animals. No animal is euthanized for lack of space. The Society is run entirely on donations; no government money is received. We recently adopted two young patch mackerel tabbies, Phoebe and Fiona, after our old kitty, Ebonita passed, just missing her 20th birthday.

  • I'd like to nominate the Humane Society of Mecklenburg Co. in Charlotte, NC. They do a great job helping other organizations when they can, and are sadly underfunded for such a large city!

    I would like to recommend Sayreville Pet Adoption, in Sayreville, NJ.They are a true NO kill shelter.The cats are well cared for considering the over population.Many of the cats had to be in foster care in homes as they ran out of space.They would REALLY appreciate this litter.

  • I wish to nominate "A Place to Bark & Meow" which is a no kill rescue in Portland, TN.
    Bernie Berlin is an artist friend of mine & devotes her life to rescuing dogs & cats from high kill shelters & giving them a new lease on life.
    Thank you for considering her rescue.

  • Jamie Appel

    Animal Compassion Network in Asheville, NC gets my vote!! (

    They are a safe-for-life organization with some of the hardest working employees and (mostly)volunteers I have ever had the pleasure of cleaning litter boxes with. Dogs and cats are carefully matched to families who will love and care for them. I adopted my cat Martin four months ago from ACN and thanks to the World's Greatest Cat Litter you can't tell there's a cat in the house until he rubs up against your leg and purrs. I buy my WGCL at Pet Harmony, a well-stocked pet supply store whose proceeds go to help the animals at ACN.

    Thanks for your great product and please keep giving cat litter to organizations who help save animals.

    i would like to nominate the warwick valley humane society in warwick, ny. we have over 100 cats currently in the building,with alot of them in isolation due to sickness. we are a non profit organization with no funding for cats. The only way we can finacially care for all of these felines is through fundraising, which we do alot of. Since we have so many your cat litter sounds like it would go a much longer way than what we currently use. It would be a tremendous help to us and the staff to cut down on cleaning 100 plus cat boxes every day.

    here is my nomination: Forgotten Animals of Los Angeles

    Please help this rescue, they work endlessly under buildings (I was with them), anywhere to get strays to the vets. I adopted my two boys from them 5 years ago. Folks spend so much of their own money. Thank you for your great product. Bless you all.

    FORGOTTEN ANIMALS of LOS ANGELES is an outstanding cat rescue operation helping hundreds of cats every month!

    Forgotten Animals of Los Angeles (“FALA”) is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to humane nurturing, neutering and finding loving homes for abandoned cats & kittens. Each animal receives a health check, is tested, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and dewormed prior to adoption. The tax-deductible donation required from each would-be adopter ensures the safety and welfare of the next abandoned cat or kitten in need.
