Cat Pawsitive


The Jackson Galaxy Project was founded in 2014 by Jackson Galaxy, a New York Times bestselling author, renowned cat behavior and wellness expert, and longtime host of Animal Planet’s “My Cat From Hell.”  

Jackson Galaxy found his way into animal welfare the way that most people do: part chance, part fate, part destiny. During his journey that started as an entry-level shelter worker, Jackson questioned, observed, and learned. He saw what worked, what wasn’t working, and created new solutions. Jackson developed a vision to help cats through innovation and collaboration. Now that vision is a reality through The Jackson Galaxy Project. 

To date, The Jackson Galaxy Project has helped 245 animal welfare organizations across the country while educating shelter staff and volunteers through more than 39,000 training sessions and workshops to help improve the well-being for thousands of cats. 

Adopt a Cat


The Jackson Galaxy Project believes that understanding cats at a fundamental level, from their history and evolution to their body language and the ways they communicate, will help shelter staff and volunteers work more effectively with the cats in their care, resulting in happier cats and more adoptions to celebrate. 

Cat Pawsitive 360, an initiative of The Jackson Galaxy Project, takes a 360-degree view of the feline experience on everything from behavioral models to environmental enrichment so that more lives will be saved, and the well-being of cats will be improved both in and out of the shelter. This initiative allows each cat to be recognized as a unique individual and emphasizes the importance of supporting feline caregivers in the shelter and in the home with empowering tools and resources.
