LOS ANGELES, June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hannah Simone, star of "New Girl," surprised new cat parents at Amanda Foundation in Beverly Hills to celebrate Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. Simone is partnering with Fresh Step with the power of Febreze throughout the month to support the brand's Million Meow Mission of helping every shelter cat find a forever home.
"There are millions of cats living in shelters, and each year only 37% are adopted," said Simone. "We want to bring awareness for all those cats still searching for their forever home, and not only help them find their perfect match, but also make the transition home a success."
Litter box rejection is one of the top reasons cats are returned to shelters. New Fresh Step with the power of Febreze doesn't just mask odors, it eliminates them, leaving behind a fresh clean scent and helping to make kitty's transition home successful.
"We strive to educate all new cat parents at the point of adoption so they are prepared to welcome their cat home," said Teri Austin at Amanda Foundation, "and Fresh Step is helping with materials and litter training to ensure each adoption is a success."
Also in time for Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, Fresh Step is launching its new Paw Points Rewards app, which makes it easy to donate to your local animal shelter. Members can also earn points for Fresh Step purchases and redeem them for litter, coupons, cat toys and more. The app is free, fun and cat approved. For every app download this month, Fresh Step will give its members 50 bonus Paw Points.
