About Us

The Jackson Galaxy Project, founded in 2014, is a Signature Program of Greater Good Charities, a public 501c3 nonprofit organization. The Project is the realization of Jackson’s long-standing dream of improving the lives of animals at risk and helping the people who care for them.

Jackson Galaxy found his way into animal welfare the way that most people do: part chance, part fate, part destiny. During his journey from entry-level shelter worker to America’s Cat Daddy, Jackson questioned, observed and learned. He saw what worked, what wasn’t working, and created new solutions. He developed a vision to help animals through innovation and collaboration. Today, that vision is becoming a reality through The Jackson Galaxy Project.

The Project:

  • focuses on programs that drive innovation
  • promotes improved shelter design and construction
  • provides “Elevation through Education”: increased knowledge that inspires and empowers staff, rescuers and adopters to continually raise the bar for animals at risk

Jackson helps guide the Projects’s vision as a member of the Greater Good Charities Board.

We have exciting initiatives planned for the coming months.  Sign up for our e-newsletter so we can keep you informed!

“I am thrilled to launch The Jackson Galaxy Project to improve the lives of sheltered animals and their dedicated advocates. As a long time rescue worker, my heart belongs to the welfare of all animals. I know that knowledge and innovation will save more lives. The pieces are in place, the technology is available, the passion is alive, and the time to act is now.”
