Research on feline health contributes to the long and healthy lives of our cherished feline friends. I’ve spent more than 20 years working in the pet market and have witnessed some amazing innovations. For instance, feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) was historically regarded as a capital offense. But now there is finally hope with efficient therapies thanks to the diligent work of veterinary researchers. In reality, a cat with FIP was successfully treated by a rescue organization for which I work, and he is now healthy and content in his forever home thanks exclusively to research supported by the EveryCat Health Foundation.
The only charitable organization in the world devoted solely to feline health is EveryCat, formerly known as the Winn Feline Foundation. It has given more than $8 million in grants since 1968 to more than 30 partner institutions around the world for ground-breaking cat research. Dedicated contributors and partners have helped to make this financing possible. EveryCat Health Foundation-funded research assists veterinarians by offering teaching materials that enhance the management of feline health issues and prevent many diseases. The foundation’s professional assessment group assists with the distribution of grants, which happen at least twice a year.
