Background:
August of 2012 saw over 10,000 people descend on the Walker Art Centre’s Open Field venue to celebrate cats and bring online communities together in the real world. The world’s first Internet Cat Video Festival was an unmatched and unforeseen success. This single event sparked international headlines, took over the internet ‘airwaves’ and was even screened at the internationally recognized SXSW (South by South-west) interactive conference and festival in Austin, TX.! Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (CFHS) secured the distribution rights for Canada. Members of the Canadian Federation of Humane Society, this includes the Winnipeg Humane Society, can screen the video as part of their ongoing fundraising efforts.

The Winnipeg Humane Society is a charity and non-profit organization whose mission is to protect animals from suffering and to promote their welfare and dignity. Funded primarily by donations, The WHS has pets for adoption to the public. All pets available for adoption have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and have received a behavioural assessment.
