Congratulations to Caring for Cats, Inc. in St. Paul, MN for being this week’s winner of America’s Favorite Shelter Contest. The group is dedicated to improving the lives of homeless and abused cats and kittens.

The non-profit group provides:

  • Shelter and food for stray, abused and surrendered cats and kittens
  • An aggressive adoption program for homeless felines
  • Veterinary care for cats
  • Education to the public about the nature and care of felines

As the weekly winner of America’s Favorite Shelter Contest, Caring for Cats, Inc. was awarded $500. The contest is sponsored by Care2, Adopt a Pet.com and the ASPCA and runs through July 10.

The shelter or rescue group with the most votes will receive $15,000. Have you voted for your favorite shelter?

Here are some of the comments made by supporters who voted for Caring for Cats, Inc.and helped them win the weekly prize:
