The Average Joe Cat Photo Contest!

There Just Aren't Enough Cat Photos on the Internet. Let's Fix That!

The Average Joe Cat Photo Contest is an annual online celebration of cats and their quirks. Starting on Sunday, April 15th, we invite you to enter YOUR favorite cat photos in our 2018 contest, powered by GoGo Photo Contest.

We have some fantastic prizes up for grabs this year including a GoPro Hero6 Black. Every crazy cat person needs a great action camera for taking cat photos and videos! Winners will be selected based on the number of online votes they receive between April 15th and May 31st and all proceeds will support Purrfect Pals.

Let’s make this annual fundraiser a huge success so we can provide much-needed second chances for the many homeless cats and kittens who need our help!

Visit today to enter (or vote for) your favorite photos!

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
