God's Feral Felines: Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Reduced adoption fees

With Covid, people have found themselves more isolated and lonely. Unfortunately, adopting a pet was out of the question for many people, as they had lost their job and did not have the money for adoption fees. The grant allowed us to provide a reduced adoption fee and still let people maintain their dignity in paying a small amount for a kitten/cat. In many cases, having an animal gives people a purpose when all seems bad.

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Our focus is on babies who need to be bottle-fed or very young kittens. We have avoided taking in many adults, as they are harder to find homes for and there are not many organizations that are able to focus on the baby babies. This grant specifically helped us adopt out some of our adult cats. The three who come to the top of my mind are Talliah (first photo), Twilight (second photo), and Sophie (third photo). The fees for many of the kittens were reduced, too, but while there is also a burst of pleasure at adopting kittens, there is something special about adopting out an adult cat — especially knowing that these cats will no longer be taking care of babies, as they have retired from that, but will now have the opportunity to be someone’s baby themselves.
