Become a Part of Feline Nutrition
Join – It's Free!
Everyone who cares about cats and their health should join Feline Nutrition. Whether you are a nervous beginner looking for information and help or have been feeding a raw diet for years, we want and need your support. We also encourage membership for those involved in cat-related businesses or organizations, such as enlightened retailers, raw diet and food companies, rescue/adoption groups, breeders and veterinarians.
Over the past 70 years, the way cats are fed has changed radically. The introduction of dry kibble foods and highly processed canned foods has greatly affected the health of cats, as many of the diseases so common in cats nowadays are diet related.
Our basic mission is actually pretty simple. Get as many cats as possible onto a healthy raw meat diet. We believe every cat deserves the benefits eating a raw diet can bring. Every pet parent deserves the peace of mind that comes with knowing you are feeding the diet your cat evolved to eat. To accomplish this mission we educate pet parents with science-backed, practical information.
Donate – Thank You!
The Feline Nutrition Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is dedicated to improving cats' lives through better nutrition. Working with our sister organization, the Feline Nutrition Education Society, we work to educate pet parents on the importance of bio-appropriate nutrition and the relationship of diet and health. Together we are known as Feline Nutrition.
You can help cats everywhere by supporting our work. We help not only beginner and experienced cat parents, rescues and shelters, but we aid retailers and raw diet manufacturers in making raw diets more accessible and accepted. We work to make bio-appropriate raw diets the standard for the proper feeding of cats, that which all other diets must be compared to.

Volunteer – You Can Help!
As a non-profit organization with no paid staff, Feline Nutrition depends on the efforts of people who are passionate about feline welfare and believe in what we do. If you would like to help change the way cats are fed, then we have volunteer opportunities for you.
When I first switched my cats to a raw meat diet, I was amazed at the positive changes in them. I knew I had to help others understand how important feeding cats the right way was. I took that passion and started Feline Nutrition. I know many of you feel that same passion when you see the transformation in your own cats. You want to tell the world. You want to do something to get others to understand. You can. One person can make a difference.
There is a lot of work that goes into Feline Nutrition, not all of it obvious. We welcome volunteers with special skills! If you have an area of expertise and would like to help, let us know. Here are some areas that are needed, but if you have a different idea, be sure to include it on your form!
If you like to write, and are good at it, we have opportunities for you to write, research and/or edit articles for Feline Nutrition. We are not only looking for veterinarians to contribute articles, but people with a passion for cats and their wellbeing who have a story to tell.
Veterinary Partners
Are you a kitty doc? We are always looking for raw savvy veterinarians who would like to contribute to our efforts. From reviewing articles for medical accuracy, writing new articles or just being able to answer questions, Feline Nutrition welcomes your involvement. We also seek veterinarians, nutritionists and scientists who are interested in becoming involved in the Foundation's work on feline nutrition programs.
Much of the growth of interest in bio-appropriate diets for cats happens through personal interactions. People hear about it from friends, family and online contacts. Local advocacy includes not only your actual physical location, but your online network.
Podcast Producer
We need a producer for all of the behind-the-scenes organizing. Contact guests and sponsors, organize production and technical aspects and generally keep things running smoothly. Podcast hosts are in place, many sponsors already lined up and we have numerous guests waiting to join us.
Graphic Design
If you have graphic design or production skills, we have opportunities to work on projects that can use your skills!
Project Management
If you have a flair for organizing, we have projects that need your skills.
If you are an attorney experienced with non-profits and would be interested in doing pro-bono work, Feline Nutrition would be interested.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities or if you have skills in areas not mentioned, contact Feline Nutrition by following the Volunteer Now button. We’d love to talk to you about how you can be a part of our efforts to help cats lead healthier lives.
