Making A Difference Every Day
Research supported by Winn Feline Foundation helps veterinarians improve the quality of feline health care and prevent life-threatening diseases. It takes a tremendous effort to improve the well being of cats and enable them to live
longer, healthier lives — and Winn needs your help.
Supporters of Winn Feline Foundation believe answers can be found for many of the complex health problems of cats. It is through their dedicated efforts that individuals and groups raise funds for a specific health study or medical problem involving cats. See Ways To Give.
With this events page, Winn is highlighting the following fundraising endeavors. Because part of the proceeds will be donated to Winn, please make a contribution.
Bria Fund Cures for Every FIP Cat Virtual Raffle
Can you imagine a world where all cats with FIP are Cured? Winn Can!
Continued funding of the Bria Fund and FIP research is more important than ever! This time of year, we usually hold our annual raffle, the biggest fundraiser each year, however this year in lieu of a physical raffle, we are holding the Cures for Every FIP Cat Virtual Raffle. It will run until September 30, 2017.
How do you participate in the raffle? You can donate!
If you have ever donated a prize for a Bria Fund raffle or were planning on donating a prize this year, please make a donation instead. If you have ever donated and received raffle tickets to win prizes, please just donate! If you haven’t done either but have lost a kitty yourself, or know someone who lost a fur angel to FIP, you can donate as well. If you just love cats and animals, we can always use your donations too.
With cures in sight, it is now the time for you to reach out to friends, family, vets, and other cat and animal lovers to ask them to donate and help cure all types of FIP! Unlike most raffles, making a donation of any amount makes you and all the cats who will benefit, winners! Let’s make it bigger and better than the Bria Fund Raffle last year.
Thank you for your continued support. With your help, we can cure and end FIP!

Speckles the Cat - An Illustrated Book
Speckles is the focus of a campaign that raise funds for new health studies leading to potential answers for the major cancers (lymphoma, carcinomas, and mast cell disease) of the “triad” in cats– the liver, pancreas, and gastrointestinal tract. Pioneering studies regarding prevention, early diagnosis, pain management and treatment of major triad cancers will be encouraged. Speckles' story is told on Winn's Gifts in Action page.
A new children's book is now available through Amazon and CreateSpace for purchase, raising money for the Speckles Abdominal Cancer Campaign. Please purchase through the AmazonSmile program and select Winn Feline Foundation as your charity of choice.

A Children's Book
Deborah Christensen lost her beloved cat companion, Spunky, to one of the most common forms of oral cancer of cats (feline oral squamous cell carcinoma or FOSCC). Deborah channeled her loss into writing a children's book titled, Spunky the Cat and His Four Seasons of Fun which can be purchased through Amazon.com. Part of the proceeds from her book sales are donated to sponsor health studies that will help prevent or cure feline oral cancer.
Spunky the Cat is a wonderful book for children and one way to help raise money for Deborah's cause.

Deborah Jesson raises money for FIP research through the sale of her book, Kona's Fight. Find it on Amazon.com and make a purchase today to help fight FIP.
From the books' description:
Between tears and laughter, Kona’s Fight chronicles the life of baby Kona, a tiny kitten with a big heart and a brave spirit. Follow him as he battles, as long and as hard as he can, the deadly FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) virus.
Told from Kona’s point of view, the story gives a touching and inspirational insight into life with FIP and its effects on those who love and care for him. The bond between Kona and his family, especially his Mom, holds them together until the end, and beyond.
