Animal Planet’s Jackson Galaxy Expands Cat Camp To Las Vegas
After three successful years in New York City, Jackson Galaxy, renowned cat wellness expert, host of Animal Planet’s “My Cat From Hell” and New York Times best-selling author, is expanding Cat Camp to Las Vegas!
Sponsored by Petco Foundation, Cat Camp will bring entertainment, education and empowerment throughout the city of Las Vegas and to The INDUSTRIAL Event Space on November 9-10, 2019, with a goal of inspiring even more people to celebrate cats, connect with their community and cultivate advocacy.
Jackson Galaxy’s Cat Camp, the premier cat-advocacy event in the country for cat lovers of all stripes, is expanding and heading west for the first time to Las Vegas, NV. With a lifesaving investment by Petco Foundation, a national, nonprofit animal welfare organization working to inspire and lead change for animals across the country, Cat Camp brings entertainment, education and empowerment throughout the city of Las Vegas and to The INDUSTRIAL Event Space on November 9-10, 2019.
Hosted by co-founders Jackson Galaxy, renowned cat wellness expert and host of Animal Planet’s “My Cat From Hell,” and Christina Ha, co-owner of NYC’s first Cat Café, Meow Parlour, and president of its affiliated non-profit adoption group, Meow Parlour Cats, Cat Camp Las Vegas is a celebration of love for all things feline. For the first time ever, Cat Camp aims to do a city takeover by partnering with multiple cat organizations to host camp-style sessions all over the city.
The weekend will be packed with adventure where cat lovers can shop for swag, have fun mingling with fellow cat aficionados, and – most importantly – become inspired to be better cat guardians, lovers and advocates! Saturday will feature engaging educational presentations with speakers including Galaxy and kitten advocate, Hannah Shaw (aka Kitten Lady). On Sunday, guests can expect interactive workshops, arts & crafts and cutting-edge products for both cats and their guardians. Attendees can sign up for additional events taking place all over Las Vegas as Cat Camp invades the city to spread cat love so residents can create a better future for both companion and community cats.
The feline-focused festival started in 2017 and recently celebrated its third successful year in New York City, attracting campers from 31 states and eight countries. Cat Camp was created to bring together the country’s first community defined by their passion for helping America’s most popular companion pet, and has now trained over 9,000 people from all over the US and other countries to become more involved in their community to save lives. By using the momentum built over the past three years, the goal of this expansion to the west coast is to give even more of the country access to the immersive event in order to inspire even more people to celebrate cats, connect with their community and cultivate advocacy.
Cat Camp is sponsored by Petco Foundation, a valued longtime partner of Meow Parlour and Jackson Galaxy, dedicated to creating a lifesaving nation.
