One of the Internet’s most famous cats is giving back to a cause close to her heart. Lil Bub announced in a press conference last week that she will be working with the ASPCA to raise money for special needs animals like herself.

“Together we are raising money for organizations that provides extra help for extra special pets like myself,” meowed the adorable American short hair at the ASPCA headquarters.

The grants will provide funds to rescue organizations that support animals who have birth defects, disabilities resulting from mistreatment and other issues that make them harder to adopt like being an FIV positive kitty. The money will be raised from direct donations and sales made at the Lil Bub’s store on her official website.

The cause is a familiar one to Lil Bub who suffers from  a myriad of disabilities including extreme dwarfism, having extra toes on all paws and a shorter lower jaw that forces her to keep her mouth constantly open and her tongue sticking out. Curiously enough, all of Lil Bub’s “defects” are what have made her one of the cutest and well-known cats on the planet. She’s hoping the grants will help other animals like herself find a mom and dad like she’s found her “dude” who treats her like a queen, as evidenced in the green eyed cutie’s blog.

    The ASPCA is not your
    local volunteer animal shelter. The ASPCA has been hijacked by
    radical animal rights activist. It is a hundred fifty million dollar
    corporation that spends almost every dime it gets on obscene salaries
    and filing lawsuits. It raises money by showing ads of cute dogs and
    cats, but it spends less then 10% to feed and shelter cats and dogs.
    What it does spend money on, is the vegan activist group Mercy for
    Animals and a 9 million dollar judgment for filing false allegations
    against the Ringling Brothers THE ASPCA IS AGAINST RODEO AND WESTERN
    EATTING MEAT. The ASPCA wants to change our eating habits and
    standard of living by outlawing farming methods that are used on
    family farms. The ASPCA is bad for America so don’t applaud its
    lackeys. If you want to support something think about giving to the
    child fund, St. Jude, the Wounded Warriors, or you local food bank.
    If you want to help animals, give money to you local animal shelter.
    Giving money to the ASPCA is giving money to a bloated bureaucracy
    that waste it on salaries and litigation. It claims to do good but if
    you really look at what it does, it only piggybacks on the work of
    local organizations.
