Purr-fect Partners

Trusted partners working for the betterment of cat health

Cat Fancy Association

The Cat Fancy Association (CFA) has been intimately involved with Winn Feline Foundation’s early history. From the initial $125 donation in 1968 through our first grant to the University of California, Davis in 1971, CFA set the tone for being a “purr-fect partner.”

Backed by CFA’s support, Winn provided almost $1.5 million into research grants for feline health studies by 1996. While both organizations have followed separate pathways in recent years, research grant funding surpassed $5,5 million by the end of 2015. Winn’s Donor Tree, with its legacy of cumulative donors, found a home on the CFA main boardroom headquarters in Alliance, OH.

Winn Feline Foundation continues to have a close, family-like relationship with its founding organization. As CFA holds its annual meeting in one of seven regions, Winn also conducts its annual continuing education symposium and board meeting.


Zoetis (zô-EH-tis) — derived from zoetic, meaning “pertaining to life” — supports customers and businesses focused on raising and caring for livestock and companion animals. Building on a 60-year history as the animal health arm of Pfizer, Zoetis discovers, develops, manufactures and markets veterinary vaccines and medicines, complemented by diagnostic products and genetic tests and supported by a range of services.

The Winn/Zoetis 2014 joint grant program is a part of Zoetis’ Commitment to Veterinarians™ platform, which offers support through training and education, research and development, investing in the future of the veterinary profession and philanthropy. The grant complements a number of other Zoetis programs supporting the veterinary profession, including millions invested in industry education and training each year.
