THE WOODLANDS, TX -- Cathy Kangas announced today that the Cathy Kangas Foundation for Animals, ( a registered charity based in New Canaan, CT, will cover all adoption fees at Montgomery County Animal Shelter on Friday, February 7th through Sunday, February 9th. The shelter is located at 8535 Highway 242, Conroe, TX.

The event is part of Free the Shelters, a program created by the Foundation in May of 2017, to save shelter animals from being euthanized. It is co-sponsored by PRAI Beauty, a cruelty free skincare line. The shelter has over 300 animals physically in its building and approximately the same number in Foster care. Many of the animals are owner-surrendered, which makes them great pets because they have already lived with a family.

Cathy Kangas said: “We are delighted to work with Montgomery County Animal Shelter. It is a wonderful shelter that needs our help. Through the support of PRAI Beauty, a cruelty-free skin and neck care brand I founded, we are committed to finding shelter animals a forever home.”

Mark Wysocki, Assistant Director, said: “We have over 300 cats and dogs and Free the Shelters will enable us to clear out our shelter and find homes for our wonderful animals. The support of the Cathy Kangas Foundation will help us start the year with an exciting event – and continue us on our lifesaving journey.”

All adopted pets have been spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. The Cathy Kangas Foundation for Animals has worked with shelters in the United States and Canada rescuing more than 6,000 animals through the Free the Shelters initiative. The goal of Free the Shelters is to gradually clear out animal shelters by subsidizing adoption fees coast-to-coast and encouraging people to adopt animals rather than buying them at pet shops.

The Foundation’s premier sponsor is PRAI Beauty, the leader in cruelty-free skincare that is Leaping Bunny and PETA certified. The mission of the Foundation, a registered 501 (c)(3) charity, is to provide a voice to those who have none by making sure that every animal is protected and loved.

The mission of the Cathy Kangas Foundation for Animals, a registered 501 (c)(3) charity, is to provide a voice to those who have none by making sure that every animal is protected and loved, particularly those in animal shelters or kill pens for horses. The Cathy Kangas Foundation for Animals has been able to help to encourage pet adoptions nationwide with over 6,000 animals adopted to date. The Foundation underwrites programs both nationally and internationally. It has had remarkable success with two initiatives: Free the Shelters, an international campaign to help homeless animals and Saving America’s Icons, which rescues horses from slaughter. The Foundation will continue to fund these initiatives and others and asks the public to join it in creating a better world for all animals.
