Humane Society of Pulaski County: Cat Enrichment

What was the money or product used for?

We used the grant to purchase all-new cat furniture for our free-range cat room. We were able to purchase four play/climbing/sleep towers to replace our old, dirty furniture.

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

This grant will give our cats so much more opportunity to play, explore, and sleep comfortably. The furniture is easily cleaned and disinfected, which will allow us to control outbreaks of illness better. We’ll also be able to have more cats in our free-range room at a time.

The new furniture will also allow us to take better videos to share on our social media. Having a nice room with nice furniture makes all the difference.

How many pets did this grant help?

This will help hundreds of cats each year.

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

Fluffy Pants (first photo) had been with us for several months and had taken quite a bit of time to warm up to people. He was in one of the first groups of cats to experience the new furniture. He loved it and was able to play with his fellow cats right up until he was adopted several days after the new furniture arrived! So glad that this sweet boy got to experience that fun before leaving!
