Steel Panther's Kitty Cam Encouraged Donations and Adoptions

LA rockers Steel Panther raised money for cat rescue Heaven On Earth this past #GivingTuesdayNow by promoting an “all-day kitty cam,” focused on the adorable four-legged pussycats not doing much of anything in a room with some toys, under the watchful eyes of the band members on two big posters.


Streamed live from the local animal rescue, the kittens were also available for adoption.

“Thanks for watching. The stream is now over, but the replay lives on forever.  And you can still make a donation to Heaven on Earth,” it states on the Steel Panther web site, which hosted the YouTube live cam.

#GivingTuesdayNow, set up by GivingTuesday (Dec. 1), was "a global day of giving and unity... as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19."

The feline-loving Panthers selected Heaven on Earth Society for Animals, which was founded in 2000, coincidentally the same year as the band.

The mission of the charity, whose website is heavenlypets.org, is "to transform the lives of homeless cats through rescue, sanctuary, and new beginnings." They are a cage-free, no-kill shelter, hold mobile adoption events each weekend, started a foster program in 2018, and offers clinics and other outreach. –– Continue reading and watch the video at Samaritanmag.com
