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.
"Have A Heart and Spare Some Change" Bria Fundraising Event ~ February 2017
Valentine’s Day is coming soon. We celebrate with those we love, including our fur kids, who love us unconditionally. It is also a time to think of loving, wonderful memories of our fur angels taken by FIP. We wish with all our hearts that they were here to celebrate this special holiday with us.
FIP is still with us, and precious, much loved kittens and adult cats are attacked by this evil and unforgiving disease. Trips to the Rainbow Bridge occur daily all over the world. Fortunately, we are truly making progress in the battle to defeat FIP. Through your support of the Bria Fund, important FIP research is occurring. Every year we gain important knowledge needed to diagnose and treat FIP and to develop an effective vaccine to prevent FIP. The Bria Fund FIP projects for 2017 will be selected soon and widely announced. We can’t slow down now and must help FIP research advance.
If you are still using real money, do you save coins in a jar? Would you consider collecting change for a month and donating it to the Bria Fund? If you don’t collect change, a donation of $10 or more would help so much. You can donate via credit card through Winn’s new direct Bria Fund donation page link at
Or if you live outside the United States or Canada, or wish to donate through PayPal, you can donate through our main donation page
After you donate or plan on donating at the end of the month, please go to our event page. Tell us why you are donating, share a photo, and encourage others to Have a Heart and Spare Some Change. Please share this event with others too. Together, we are a powerful family and we will defeat 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.
You can always Give Now to the campaign through our secure donation page.
Support Cat Health Through Winn Riders
A Winn Riders for Feline Health bicycle club has been formed and a bike jersey is available (see photo). Any interested cat and bike enthusiasts can show their support by donating to Winn and ordering a Winn Riders jersey or sport shirt (order availability varies). Membership offers you the opportunity to show your support for Winn as you participate in local cycling events. Download the flyer about Winn Riders for Feline Health.
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.
