Norm's Matching Challenge - We met our goal!

The Dancing Cat is delighted to announce that one of our loyal supporters offered a matching grant, and we met the challenge! Closing out at the end of September 2017, the $10,000 donated by our cool cat-loving community was doubled!

Norm's story

Norm first found his way to The Dancing Cat in the summer of 2016 because he enjoys the company of cats – and it was a lucky turn of events! His intent was simple: spend one-on-one time with cats in a calm and peaceful setting. Once inside the doors of The Dancing Cat, he felt connected and found himself returning again and again. Norm was impressed with The Dancing Cat’s success at finding permanent loving homes for so many at-risk animals, and he wanted to help ensure that we are able to continue this important mission.  So he decided to donate a very generous amount to The Dancing Cat in the form of a challenge grant to encourage others, especially new donors, to donate in amounts large or small.

We hope The Dancing Cat has touched you, as it did Norm. Whether you have spent time at The Dancing Cat, or followed our successes online, we hope you are inspired to join Norm by investing in the future of our remarkable cat-loving community.  A gift of any size helps to make a meaningful difference.
