+$500 to Oakland Animal Services

In honor of the Golden State Warriors’ 2017 NBA Championship, and with the help of NBA Catwatch shirt sales, I donated $500 to Oakland Animal Services.

Thank you to everyone who bought a shirt in the past month, that’s where your money went. Thanks to Oakland Animal Services for being good people. And you’re welcome, Wanda.

A couple quick notes:

With the Warriors win, a team with a cat owner has won five of the last six NBA Championships – Miami 2012, Miami 2013, San Antonio 2014, Golden State 2015, Golden State 2017.

Sales from NBA Catwatch shirts have raised over $14,000 so far.

Working on new merch for Fall right now!

+$500 to this woman, a hero to cats and people.

Just donated $500 from NBA Catwatch shirts to Oasis for Animals, a Washington-based animal shelter struck by a fire. Luckily for the cats, shelter owner Jean Favini is a hero.

From the South Whidbey Record’s article Rescue owner risks fire to save cats:

The cat rescue organization owner defied the warnings of a 911 official and charged into a smoke-filled office with a towel around her face to save her meowing dependents. She made several trips into the building, returning each time with armloads of cats.

“All I cared about was the cats, so I said there was no way I wasn’t going to get them from the office,” Favini said. “I had to make a decision, and I’m so thankful I did. I’m just sad I didn’t go in sooner.”

Really touched by this story, and all the support from people buying these goofy shirts (and koozies and socks) who help raise money to support our animal friends. You guys are the best.
