I know I’m on a quick blogging hiatus (see why here), but I just had to share this with you!
As you know, June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month and guess what’s making this month even better? Jackson Galaxy will personally be driving over 1,000 miles to help save homeless cats for The Jackson Galaxy Foundation’s (JGF) new program, Operation Homeward Bound.
Here’s the full scoop, straight from JGF.
- The 1,000+ mile route: California to Colorado
- Jackson will be chronicling his 16-hour journey, introducing his feline passengers and interacting with fans along the way.
- Viewers can tune in live on Monday, June 27th at 10pm ET / 7:00pm PT via The Jackson Galaxy Foundation’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, using hashtag #JGF1000.
- The goal is to raise critical awareness and funds to enable Jackson to continue creating life-saving programs and partnerships with shelters across the country.
- Operation Homeward Bound is the first mission of The Jackson Galaxy Foundation to transport animals from overcrowded shelters to larger capacity shelters with the ability to assist additional pets in need.
The Jackson Galaxy Foundation has chosen its inaugural partners to include Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles and the Humane Society of Boulder Valley. Jackson says, “I have worked with these hard-working organizations for years, and we share the same commitment to go above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of animals.”
I know, like we needed another reason to love JG even more…but there you go! (I think the cool kids call him JG, but I can’t be sure – you know, since I’m not of that crowd.)
