Shelter Cats Walk the Red Carpet at Catdance Film Festival

Catdance is back and furrier than ever!

On Saturday, Jan. 23, “New Girl” actress and cat lover Hannah Simone will host the fourth annual Catdance Film Festival presented by new Fresh Step® with the Power of Febreze™ in Park City. Shelter kittens will take center stage – from the red carpet to the films. Fresh Step presents Catdance as part of its Million Meow Mission, campaign to help shelter cats find forever homes.

The Catdance film winner  will receive a $25,000 “kitty” (cash prize) and Golden Litter Scoop.

Guests will don cat ears and virtual reality goggles to experience for the first time ever what it’s like to be a cat being adopted, from the tearful moment they’re overlooked to joyful union with its new family. If the world could see how much adoption means from a cat’s point of view, shelters would be empty.

In the meantime, you can get ready for Catdance with this just-released film, “The Purrfect Match”, a love story of a man and his shelter cat Tonto.

Stay tuned for the winner!  Good luck to all of the participants!
