Emancipet, the nonprofit on a mission to make veterinary care affordable and accessible for all pet owners, will be featured on “Cat Daddy” Jackson Galaxy’s television show My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet this Saturday, Oct. 20, 8 p.m. CT.
The episode is shot in Philadelphia, where Emancipet has a clinic, and features CEO Amy Mills and Emancipet staff working with other nonprofits and volunteers to trap/neuter/release community cats (also known as feral cats). It’s an emotional and dramatic episode and is the finale of this season of My Cat From Hell. During the show, Emancipet will announce a new initiative and fundraising effort to help even more community cats and their caretakers in Philadelphia and the other four cities where Emancipet has clinics, and to help Emancipet expand to even more cities across the U.S.

“Community cats matter, and the bond between them and their caretakers is evident in the show. Emancipet is all about protecting the human-animal bond, and helping keep community cats healthy is part of our work,” Mills says. “We are grateful to Jackson Galaxy and Animal Planet for helping to spread the message about Emancipet and our work caring for animals in underserved communities.”

There’s a viewing party at the appropriately titled Black Cat Tavern (2654 S. 12th Street)
