On Monday, Jackson Galaxy and his wife Minoo started a 1,000 mile journey from Los Angeles to Boulder, CO to save the lives of dozens of kittens through a new program by the Jackson Galaxy Foundation, Homeward Bound.
Jackson and Minoo were alarmed at the situation at the overcrowded shelters in their community. Partnering with Best Friends Animal Society Los Angeles, the Humane Society of Boulder Valley, and various corporate sponsors, Jackson got behind the wheel to drive the kittens from LA to Boulder.
Jackson shared live videos from his journey on the Jackson Galaxy Foundation Facebook page, and will be livestreaming from Boulder again this morning. Be sure to watch to learn more about this incredible journey, meet the kittens, and find out how you can get involved!
The Jackson Galaxy Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax exempt charity founded in 2014 by Animal Planet’s My Cat from Hell star Jackson Galaxy, is the realization of Jackson’s long-standing dream of improving the lives of animals at risk and helping the people who care for them. The website www.jacksongalaxyfoundation.org enables visitors to sign up for Mojo alerts to help animals in need, keep up with the latest news from founder Jackson Galaxy, and honor a cherished pet to benefit the organization’s mission.
