Second Chances Luncheon Featuring Jackson Galaxy!

Please join us for the Second Annual Purrfect Pals Second Chances Luncheon! Guests will enjoy a delicious gourmet vegetarian lunch while learning about our new behavior rehabilitation program and other ways in which we are providing much-needed second chances for homeless cats and kittens in the Puget Sound Region. Our inspirational speakers will once again include cat behavior expert and television star Jackson Galaxy as well as members of our community whose lives have been dramatically changed by Purrfect Pals and the cats we brought into their lives.

Jackson Galaxy is the host and executive director of Animal Planet’s hit show My Cat From Hell. The Cat Daddy has more than 20 years of experience teaching cat guardians to understand the world from a cat’s eye view, and helping feline family members get their “mojo” back.

There is no charge to attend the luncheon, but guests will be asked to make a donation during the event. A minimum donation of $150 is suggested.  For more information on this exciting event, please visit the Second Chances Luncheon page or contact our event team at 360-926-8447 or
