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.
