Hello cat buddies,

It’s time to walk for the paws!

Please join me, December 7 when we strut our stuff for those we love.

½ mile or mile, you decide.


Walk a pup, or simply walk with me.

It’s only $20, and you receive a great shirt and a bag stuffed full of goodies!

Enjoy a full day of activities that include over 200 cats and dogs available for adoption, holiday vendors, food, contests, drawings and so much more!


My personal goal is to sign up 50 cat buddies by Friday, which is the DEADLINE to order shirts. (I’m at 6 so far. L)

Please let me know if you can walk.

And, thanks for making the holidays brighter for homeless animals.

In addition to a new, more central location at Payne Park, which is in close proximity to downtown Sarasota, we also have added a new event!

This year, Cat Depot will be hosting the 1st Pawpurr’s Walk in conjunction with Jingle Paws Jubilee. Attendees are invited to walk their dogs, walk with photos of their cats or walk with friends to raise money for homeless, abandoned and injured cats and kittens. All dogs must be up to date on vaccines and kept on a standard, four-foot leash; no retractable leashes will be allowed.

Participants can choose to walk either 1/2 mile or 1 mile around the
Jingle Paws Jubilee festivities.

There will be a $20 donation per walker. Children 10 years of age and younger can walk for free if accompanied by a paid, registered walker.
All walkers will receive a T-shirt and a goodie bag. Registration for the walk will be held the morning of the event from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Payne Park OR attendees can register in advance by visiting


Another First for Jingle Paws Jubilee!

Thanks to a sponsorship by Turf & Landscape Solutions, Cat Depot has secured the Community Building at Payne Park, where a “Kitty Pavilion” will have 100+ cats and kittens available for adoption at Jingle Paws Jubilee!  

All participating groups have agreed to set adoption prices for cats and kittens. Cat will be priced at $20, and kittens will be priced at $30. Exotic cats, however, will be priced individually.

The set adoption prices apply exclusively to cats!
Our goal is to adopt 100 cats and kittens in just four hours at Jingle Paws Jubilee! All attendees will be encouraged to visit the Kitty Pavilion, not only to see the beautiful cats and kittens available for adoption, but also to win some great raffle prizes!
