Jackson Galaxy

Jackson Galaxy

Jackson Galaxy is the host and executive producer of Animal Planet's long running hit show "My Cat From Hell." Jackson, an animal advocate and cat behavior and wellness consultant, is also a two-time New York Times best-selling author with more than 25 years of experience working with cats and their guardians.

Long before Jackson was known as the "Cat Daddy," the working musician found he had a unique ability to connect with cats when he took a job at a local animal shelter. During the decade that followed, he worked with thousands of cats, successfully lowering the euthanasia rate at his shelter. His work at the shelter led to a private practice of working with cat guardians and cats in their homes, which helped keep cats out of the shelter in the first place, and became the premise for Animal Planet's "My Cat From Hell." An immediate hit, the show has been a broadcast staple for nine seasons and has become a global phenomenon, placing Jackson at the forefront of a worldwide obsession with all things feline.

All along, Jackson has stayed true to his roots as a shelter worker, educator, fervent advocate and in-home cat family therapist. At the root of Jackson's unique approach is a philosophy known as "Cat Mojo," which teaches cat guardians the skills to help their feline friends build confidence and thrive within their environment, and to better the human/cat relationship at the same time. Jackson has extensively detailed his work and life in his growing collection of authored books. His first, "Cat Daddy," is a memoir, telling the story of a life-changing relationship with a cat named Benny during his years as a musician, shelter worker and an addict struggling to find a path towards recovery. His subsequent books, "Catify to Satisfy" and "Catification." Each landed on the New York Times Best-Sellers List.

Jackson has always been committed to bringing better products to the market that live up to his high standards. Jackson Galaxy Solutions, the only line of flower essence remedies designed by a behavior specialist and a veterinarian, has been helping animals live happier and healthier lives since 1995. More recently, his partnership with Petmate has brought a 20-year vision to fruition, providing innovative toys and products for every stage of a cat's life.

True to his goal of helping to save all animals, Jackson started the Jackson Galaxy Project in 2015 (www.jacksongalaxyproject.com), which seeks to better the lives of at-risk animals by transforming the places they live and helping the people who care for them. Jackson spends much of his time these days devoted to growing the reach and impact of the life-saving JGP programs and partnerships.

Jackson has been featured on 20/20, The Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Late Show with Steven Colbert, The Tonight Show, EXTRA, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post and more
