A nonprofit public organization, Winn Feline Foundation enhances the relationship between cats and humans by fostering improvements in feline health through research and education. The foundation was established in 1968 by the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) with an initial $125 donation. Through this partnership, Winn Feline Foundation has awarded more than $5.75 million in research grants by the end of 2015 that have changed cats’ lives. Winn has also partnered with Zoetis, the animal health arm of Pfizer, in a 2014 joint grant program which offers support through training and education, research and development, investing in the future of the veterinary profession and philanthropy.
Winn Feline Foundation strives to provide veterinarians and the public with access to cutting-edge feline health news and research through various resources including access to cat health articles and grant summaries, their Cat Health News Blog, e-newsletters, published journal articles, podcasts, and videos.
