LOS ANGELES, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Found Animals Foundation is joining forces with award winning, celebrity/fashion photographer Adam Bouska to develop an innovative campaign to save lives by bringing attention to the millions of shelter cats in need of homes nationwide.  The event features an open casting call to find 12 sexy studs and their pet cats for a global companion cat campaign and calendar titled "6 Packs/9 Lives." The open auditions will be held on Saturday, June 5th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at SEAACA, the South East Area Animal Control Authority, located at 9777 SEAACA Street in Downey, CA. The auditions are open to all men who have a pet cat as well as what it takes to appear in the calendar.  All contestants must be prepared to prove that their cuddly kitty truly belongs to them.

The casting will feature a panel of celebrity judges including BrownTrout Publishers, Celebrity Stylist & EXTRA Correspondent Mela Murphy, Celebrity & Fashion Photographer Adam Bouska, VH1's Lacey Conner and Season 2 Rock of Love Winner Ambre Lake.  Each of the 48 male semi-finalists, who will be selected earlier that day, will walk a catwalk and answer questions for the judges in the afternoon.  The judges will rate each contestant, scores will be tallied and top 24 finalists will be announced after all contestants have appeared. To assure global appeal, the 12 winners will be chosen through an online voting/elimination process.  The winning calendar men will be decided upon and announced by September 2010.

"6 Packs/9 Lives," will be published and distributed by BrownTrout Publishers, Inc. (the largest calendar publisher worldwide).  Proceeds from the calendar will be used to improve the lives of shelter animals and support various initiatives including spay and neuter services, microchip programs and adoption of shelter animals and homeless cats and dogs globally.
