Stray Cat Who Interrupted Baseball Game Ends Up Saving 38,000 Lives

A homeless cat that ran onto the baseball pitch and interrupted an Oakland Athletics game back in May 7, 1990 inspired one man to save thousands of animals.

The A’s manager, Tony La Russa quickly discovered that East Bay didn’t have a no-kill shelter, so he adopted the cat and named her Evie. Soon after, he and his wife Elaine founded their own – Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation – and since then 38,000 animal lives have been saved, all thanks to Evie.

Watch more about how Evie inspired such a wonderful change for homeless animals in her community in the video below.
