Thank you for joining us!

The Winn Feline Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 1968 by the Cat Fanciers' Assoc. that supports research to improve the health and welfare of cats. Projects funded by Winn have provided information that is used every day in all aspects of feline medicine. To date, over $4 million in funding has been provided to improve feline health and welfare through the generosity of our donors.
