Denver Native Jon Urbana Is Turning Cat Protection Into A National Concern  0

Millions of cats become homeless every year for one reason or another. There are not enough cat shelters to handle the amount of cats that roam cities and towns across America, so many of those cats are killed each year and every year. There are cat protection programs in most cities, but they are usually underfunded and understaffed. Cat lovers try to find homes for some of the misplaced cats, but cats aren’t like dogs. Cat are misunderstood animals. Their finicky habits and quiet demeanor work against them when it comes to adoption. But one Denver native is trying to change that perception of our feline friends. His name is Jon Urbana.

Urbana founded the Denver non-profit, the Animal Rescue and Adoption Society to solve the cat euthanasia issue. Urbana’s organization is protecting cats in the Denver area, and he wants other cities to recognize the importance of feline protection. Jon started A CrowdRise Fund to spread the word about cat abuse and cat homelessness.

Mr. Urbana isn’t just a cat lover. Jon was a star Lacrosse player at Villanova University. After graduation, Urbana started the Next Level Lacrosse Camp so Denver kids could learn how to play the sport. The Lacrosse players that help Urbana at the camp are all dedicated to bringing Lacrosse to kids that never thought about playing the sport. According to Urbana that is the main goal of the camp.

Directing a lacrosse camp for kids, and managing a non-profit for cats are not the only enterprises Urbana devotes his time to in Denver. He is also a photographer and pilot with special FAA certification. Urbana tires to combine those passions with his business endeavors. Jon earned a degree in economics from Villanova, and he is currently putting what he learn to use by helping a Danish company grow their business in the United States.

The list of Jon Urbana’s work is a long one. Jon is a leader that wants to bring awareness to worthy causes while he enjoys a fruitful life. Urbana is making a difference with his music, and that difference is helping the world change into a more caring place to experience life.
