The Friskies, a major award contest hosted by the popular cat food brand, awards cash prizes to the maker of the best original Internet cat videos. Due to the success of the program, Friskies decided to donate up to 625,000 cans of cat food to cat charity organizations, including 25,000 cans to Cat Depot.
"We are so very grateful for the donation of Friskies,” said Executive Director, Shelley Thayer in a release. “The cheers from staff and volunteers could be heard down the block when the first shipment of 5,000 cans arrived. So, to receive an additional 20,000 cans is truly a blessing. Due to Friskies’ incredible generosity, many tummies will no longer go hungry.”
