The money was used to purchase a durable and disinfectable cat tower for one of our cat community rooms.
This grant provided a safer type of enrichment for our cats. It allows us to keep the community room clean and provides an area for cats to climb, scratch, stretch, and play. All of this makes them more adoptable.
Three so far
We received the cat tower right before the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown. Most of the animals in our facility were adopted out the last day we were open. The remaining cats were still able to utilize the cat tower during the lockdown. One of our cats in particular, Agnes, really enjoyed it. The tower is the perfect height to see out of the window in the room she was in. I encouraged her up to the top of the tower a few times, and after she got comfortable with it she rarely came off of it. Agnes has pretty green eyes and the staff and I refer to her as a dragon at the top of her tower. She is currently still waiting for her forever home. You can meet Agnes here.
