Million Cat Challenge Program Manager
Cameron Moore oversees shelter engagement for the Million Cat Challenge, a joint project of Maddie’s Fund®, the Maddie’s® Shelter Medicine Program at the Univerity of Florida, the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program, and the ASPCA® designed to save the lives of 1 million more shelter cats over five years.
Cameron appears to have been born to be part of the Million Cat mission, and been guided by its Five Key Initiatives at every stage of her professional life — even before the Challenge existed.
As a member of the original team that developed Target Zero, she completed over 50 shelter assessments in 16 states identifying opportunities to implement proven best practices and increase lifesaving. Through her efforts, many shelters were able to dramatically reduce shelter intake while increasing live release, and to maintain those achievements. She also helped communities find ways to not only improve the live outcome of shelter animals, but to prevent homelessness and keep pets out of the shelters and with families who love them.
She was also instrumental in helping the City of Jacksonville achieve and maintain a live release rate of over 90 percent, including launching the renowned Feral Freedom program, which has successfully sterilized over 30,000 community cats.
Founding a nonprofit cat rescue organization called Lucky Cat Adoptions in 2005 rounds out her resumé; Lucky Cat has successfully helped over 8,500 cats and kittens through adoption and TNR.
