Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) May 29, 2014
The business of Internet cat videos is a competitive, high stakes game. The Winnipeg Humane Society (WHS) is set to reveal two new fabulous feline celebrities who can rival Colonel Meow, Lil Bub or Grumpy Cat any day. Mr. Bojangles and Fluffy are the cool cat stars of a new video called “The Price is Purrfect,” produced by cinematographer and rising star herself, Samara Funk. The video is a nod to the classic game show “The Price is Right” and its former host, spay and neuter advocate Bob Barker.
“Creating this video was a ton of fun! It was great to combine my love for animals and my passion for filming to help promote the spay and neuter initiative at The WHS,” said Funk, a recent graduate of the Creative Communications program at Red River College. “Not to mention, the cats were amazing actresses – they really had to stretch their acting skills by pretending they were male contestants.”
Funk is confident her clip will take its place among cat video royalty, while also raising awareness for The WHS’s subsidized spay and neuter program, SNAP. Through SNAP, Winnipeggers on fixed or low income can get their cats spayed or neutered for around $30. The surgery typically costs between $125 and $225 at Winnipeg veterinary clinics.

The Winnipeg Humane Society is Manitoba’s oldest and largest animal welfare agency. The WHS is more than just pet adoption – the shelter offers education programs for children and adults to encourage responsible pet ownership, and a fully-functional veterinary clinic that performs subsidized spay and neuter surgeries for Winnipeggers on fixed or low-income.
