Let Purrfect Pals and Jackson Galaxy Inspire You on June 8th!

Please join us for the first 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 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.

Registration is now open. 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. 

Our program will begin promptly at 12:00pm and end at 1:15pm. If you have time to stay longer, Jackson Galaxy will be sticking around for an hour after the official program and will be available to answer guest questions!

Meet Our Keynote Speaker: Jackson Galaxy!


Jackson Galaxy aka “The Cat Daddy” is the Host & Executive Director of Animal Planet’s long-running hit show My Cat From Hell and a two-time New York Times best-selling author with over 20 years of experience as a cat behavior and wellness consultant.

Jackson, a life-long musician, discovered his passion for cats and his unique ability to help them while on staff at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley for the better part of a decade. He worked with cats both in the shelter, as well as in the homes of guardians threatening to send their cats to the shelter.  During this time, Jackson co-founded Spirit Essences, a line of holistic remedies for animals that remains a vital business to this day.

Animal Planet premiered My Cat From Hell  in 2011.   An immediate hit, it has followed The Cat Daddy for eight top rated seasons as he makes house calls to pet guardians and their cats.  Jackson’s presence offers clients a deeper understanding of why cats act out, with insights and exercises from his unique “Cat Mojo” philosophy.

Jackson’s first book, Cat Daddy: What the World’s Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life, Love, and Coming Clean was a memoir published in 2012.  His second book, co-authored with cat style expert Kate Benjamin, was Catification: Designing a Happy & Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!).  Upon its release in 2014, it reached #1 on the New York Times Animal Bestseller list. Jackson and Kate struck Bestseller gold again with Catify to Satisfy: Simple Solutions for Creating a Cat-Friendly Home, published in Fall 2015, inspiring and teaching cat guardians how to beautify their homes and address common cat behavior problems at the same time. His latest book, Total Cat Mojo, is due out for a holiday 2017 release.

In the pet products world, a line of innovative cat items, from toys to carriers — co-designed by Jackson — is available through Petmate Pet Products.  Called the Jackson Galaxy Collection, the line has received the Industry Recognition Award from Pet Business Magazine and the Editor’s Choice Award from Cat Fancy, honors that ranked it among 2014’s best products for cats.

True to his goal of helping save the 4 million+ animals who die in shelters each year, Jackson is intensifying his work for animals through the Jackson Galaxy Foundation whose mission is to better the lives of at-risk animals by transforming the places they live and helping the people who care for them (

Featured on 20/20, The Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Tonight Show, EXTRA, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post and more, Galaxy’s ability to connect with even the most troubled felines — and the stressed-out humans living in their wake – is awe-inspiring.
