ökocat™ Donates Over 3,000 Pounds of Litter to Cat Shelters in Eco-Friendly Cities Voted on by Customers During the 2018 ökocause4paws Litter Donation Program

ökocat™ Donates Over 3,000 Pounds of Litter to Cat Shelters in Eco-Friendly Cities Voted on by Customers During the 2018 ökocause4paws Litter Donation Program

Shelters in Portland, Denver and San Francisco have received a donation of ökocat natural litter and all cat adopters through the end of 2018 will receive a coupon for a free box of litter

FERNDALE, WA. (October 9, 2018)ökocat, a Healthy Pet® brand, announced it donated over 3,000 pounds of its natural litter to cat shelters in Portland, Denver and San Francisco, the three eco-friendly cities that received the most votes during the first ökocause4paws Litter Donation Program this summer.

The shelters that have been selected to receive the donations are:

“We asked our loyal customers to help us give back to shelters by voting for their favorite eco-friendly city during our first ökocause4paws Litter Donation Program,” said Leslie Ellis, Communications Manager at ökocat. “Helping the organizations that make cat adoption possible is something we feel passionate about, and giving our customers a way to help us choose three of their favorite green cities, helped us narrow down our selection.”

The shelters in Portland, Denver and San Francisco each received over 1,000 pounds of ökocat’s natural, odor-reducing litter that will be used for the cats who come through the shelter. As part of the donation, ökocat will also provide a coupon for a free box of litter to each person who adopts a cat at the three shelters through the end of 2018.

“We’re beyond grateful to ökocat for their generous donation to Animal Aid through their ökocause4paws program,” said Paige España, Director of Operations at Animal Aid in Portland, Oregon. “As a small nonprofit rescue, donations like this make a world of difference to our shelter. Plus, we’re all about using litter that’s great for our adoptable cats and great for the environment, so ökocat cat litter really is the purrfect match!”

To kick off the 2018 ökocause4paws Litter Donation Program in June, ökocat also donated over 1,000 pounds of litter to PAWS in Lynwood, Washington and sponsored the adoption fees at an event, which resulted in 22 cats and kittens finding their forever homes.

“The ökocause4paws program has allowed us to donate over 4,000 pounds of our litter in 2018 to shelters in need, and we’re looking forward to donating even more as the program continues next year,” said Ellis. “Our goal is to change the world one litter box, and one cat adoption at a time, and our customers are helping us make that possible!”
