In addition to the many exhibitors selling merch at CatCon August 12 & 13, we’re proud to include six esteemed organizations on our Awareness Pavilion, adjacent to the Adoption Lounge. We encourage you to stop by and learn more about their missions.
Alley Cat Allies

Community cats are often misunderstood, and Alley Cat Allies is out to change that perception. This reputable organization is a resource for thousands of dedicated cat caregivers, advocates, nonprofit groups, and volunteers. They provide education and support for TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) and SNR (Shelter-Neuter-Return) programs, and low-cost spay and neuter programs. They also work to bring vital information about community cats to institutions and communities, in hopes of combatting false claims that get cats killed in shelters. In addition, they’re strong advocates for anti-cruelty laws that protect all cats in the U.S. — including community cats.

What if you had the opportunity to help animals in need while booking your travel arrangements? You do! According to Kind Traveler’s website, their mission is “to transform the incredible collective of everyday travelers into a financial force that betters the health and well-being of individuals, animals, and the environment.” They do this by using a unique hotel booking platform called “Give and Get.”

In exchange for the donation, travelers unlock exclusive rates to book directly with carefully chosen properties. They truly are a “warrior for good.”
