Sherwood Humane Animal Services: Stretch and Scratch Cat Scratchers Grant Report

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

The Stretch & Scratch product was used in quarantine cages for all cats coming into the shelter.

The Stretch & Scratch product Grant provided cats and kittens with much needed exercise during their holding periods in Quarantine. The cats and kittens seemed happier and much calmer than before we had the Stretch & Scratch product for the quarantine area.

How many pets did this grant help?

Approximately thirty cats and kittens

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

The grant helped to keep all of the cats and kittens healthier by reducing stress while they awaited their quarantine period to expire so they could be moved to the community adoption rooms.
