Posted on by PETA

This contest is CLOSED.

Was your cat adopted from an animal shelter or rescued from the street? Does he or she have eyes that can melt hearts? A look that makes you smile? Or some other awwsome quality that makes everyone swoon? Then enter your rescued pal in PETA’s 2016 Cutest Rescued Cat Alive contest for a chance to win big-time bragging rights as well as lots of fun prizes for you and your cool cat!


The guardian of the lucky cat who is named the Cutest Rescued Cat Alive will receive a first-place certificate, a copy of Ingrid Newkirk and Jane Ratcliffe’s book One Can Make a Difference, a “My Cat Is a Rescue” T-shirt, a PETA T-shirt and a cute cat toy. The second-place winner’s guardian will receive a second-place certificate, a copy of One Can Make a Difference, a “My Cat Is a Rescue” T-shirt and a cute cat toy. The third-place winner will receive a third-place certificate, a copy of One Can Make a Difference and a cute cat toy. The top three kitties will appear in an upcoming issue of Animal Times, PETA India’s magazine for members. To enter for a chance to win, just send in a photo of your precious cat – along with information about how your kitty was rescued and from what situation – using the form below.

Everyone knows that cats are the purrfect companions. What makes them so irresistible? Not only are cats adorable and charming – they also have hearts of gold. They are clever and undyingly loyal to the person who saved them from the street or from life in an animal shelter.

But many wonderful cats don’t have a special person to love or a lap to curl up on in the evening. Instead, countless cats across India are fighting for their lives on the streets or languishing in animal shelters because there aren’t enough good homes for them. PETA encourages people who are ready to open their hearts and homes to an animal companion to shun breeders and pet shops – which bring more animals into a world that is already short of good homes – and a rescued cat instead. We also urge dog and cat guardians to be sure to have their animals sterilised. After all, one unspayed female cat and her offspring can produce 370,000 cats in just seven years.

This contest is open to residents of India only. The contest closes on 24 July 2016. PETA will select 10 finalists based on equal consideration of two factors: our assessment of how cute and heart-warming the photo of the cat is and our assessment of how inspirational and motivating the submitted rescue story is. After the 10 finalists are selected by PETA, voting will be opened to the public on 28 July 2016 to help PETA decide who it should choose as the winners and will close on 11 August 2016.  PETA will announce the winners by 13 August 2016. No purchase necessary.  Void where prohibited by law.

Good luck! And remember: all rescued cats who find good homes are winners – and so are their guardians.
