Millions of homeless pets find themselves living in shelters each year, waiting for someone to love them. Green Festival has teamed up with several animal shelters to help save lives by encouraging people to adopt, not shop, for pets.

They specialize in saving cats that traditional shelters and rescues often cannot: senior cats and cats with special veterinary or behavioral needs as well as pregnant cats, nursing cats, and newborn kittens. Cats like 15-year old Misti left at a local shelter with her toy bunny, who is now living out her golden years in KSC's "retirement home."
