Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is honoring his mother’s memory by helping a cause she was passionate about: animal rescue.

MacFarlane’s mother, Perry, passed away in July 2010 after a protracted battle with cancer. Now, in honor of the one-year anniversary of her death, he is partnering with the Heaven on Earth Animal Society, a no-kill cat shelter, to establish Perry’s Place, a cage-free sanctuary and adoption center for homeless cats.

The partnership means that cats that aren’t adopted from Heaven on Earth will get a second chance at Perry’s Place. MacFarlane is working with Causes.com to fund the sanctuary; animal lovers can donate through the site. For each $1 donation, an anonymous donor will contribute an additional $10.

Perry’s compassion and love for animals both wild and domestic touched the lives of those who knew her. According to former radio host Larry King, “her friends called her a bright light who sparkled…Perry touched many who celebrated her life.” 

MacFarlane’s goal is to raise $50,000 for Perry’s place. As of Thursday, more than $11,000 had been donated through Causes.com.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
