Cat Care Society and KONG Announce Partnership for a Cat-Focused Behavior & Enrichment Program

Lakewood, CO (April 1, 2024) — Cat Care Society (CCS), a non-profit cat shelter that provides adoption services and care for cats in the Denver metro area, announces an exciting partnership with esteemed pet toy company KONG, based in Golden. Together, the two organizations are combining forces to offer a premier enrichment and behavior program for cats.

Cat Care Society is set to serve as the shelter partner for KONG’s strengthened focus on cat behavior. Cat owners can look to both sources for comprehensive information on understanding and providing enrichment in the lives of cats. Cat Care Society will be implementing products provided by KONG in its own enrichment and behavior programs for cats in the shelter, as well as educating adopters on the importance and use of these principles and tools. Select KONG products will be available for sale in the shelter’s on-site store, Meow Mart.

“We are so grateful for KONG’s support in offering enriching experiences to cats throughout the world,” said EC Michaels, executive director of Cat Care Society. “It is our own mission to offer a safe and enriching place for cats on their journey home, and KONG is a perfect complement to this work through their wealth of experience, education and product development. Thanks to this collaborative strength, we will improve the lives of shelter cats while they are in our care, while also giving cat owners the tools and physical items they need to bring this same experience inside their own homes.”

“KONG is so excited to begin a partnership with the Cat Care Society!” said KONG Trainer, Amy Leewood. “Education and enrichment have always been at the forefront of KONG’s mission, which strongly aligns with the Cat Care Societies practices, making this partnership the perfect pairing. Enrichment for cats is so important and often overlooked, we are excited to work with and support the Cat Care Society with their work to spread the knowledge on this topic.”

The partnership is effective today, April 1, 2024. For more information, visit
