Featured Programs & Initiatives

This December, we're donating proceeds from each DNA test sale to three amazing local organizations: Fix Nation, spcaLA and Milo's Sanctuary.

Basepaws donated more than $2,000 to Winn Feline Foundation’s Ricky Fund, supporting research into feline HCM (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy)

Between March and May 2020, Basepaws donated 100 free DNA tests to cats that were adopted during the pandemic. Read Squiggles' story here.

Basepaws is working with Marley’s Mittens, a feline division of Marley’s Mutts, in securing the health and safety of 15+ cats currently in their “cat house”.

Basepaws partnered with Pasadena Humane to get six length-of-stay cats adopted in record times.

We donated all ticket proceeds (over $6,000) from our first ever Cat Behavior Summit, to Critical Kittens, supporting kittens with special needs that would otherwise be euthanized.

We understand that most animal welfare organizations strongly depend on donations and volunteers, which is why we hereby pledge to donate 1% of all profits to shelters and rescues on a monthly basis. With each purchase, you’re helping save lives of cats and kittens. Thank you!
