Throughout September, we celebrated Cat Meownth at Revival Animal Health. As we celebrated our feline friends, we asked you to tell us about your favorite shelter or rescue for a chance for them to win a 20-pound tub of Breeder’s Edge Feline Foster Care milk replacer. The response was Purrty Pawsome! We litter-ally had more than 3,000 nominations submitted. The response was so outstanding we decided that instead of just one winner, we would have 6!
