Humane Society of Southern Arizona: Cat Castles Grant Report

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

The grant went to cardboard cat boxes/perches for the cats in our care at the HSSA. These boxes are vital to the enrichment and stimulation of the cats we are caring for while they are waiting for their forever home.

This grant has allowed the HSSA to provide increased enrichment and stimulation for the cats in our care. The boxes/perches will remain with the cat or cats (if a bonded pair) through the duration of their time at the HSSA and will go home with each cat at the time of their adoption.

How many pets did this grant help?

This grant will help approximately 600 cats.

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

Sweet and petite Luna was found as a stray and offered a second chance at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. With a bad case of stomatitis, poor Luna had to have all of her teeth removed, except for four canines. She’s feeling much better now and can finally eat with gusto. Luna is making up for lost time by snuggling with every visitor willing to share a hug. This little lap cat adores her human friends and would love to have you all to herself. If you could offer Luna a chance at the good life, please meet this terrific tabby today at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.

Jacob and Mose are two fluffy peas in a pod and can’t wait to find their forever home together! Transferred to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona from another shelter for a second chance, these bonded brothers have been through homelessness and illness but don’t mind life’s challenges as long as they have each other. Things are finally looking up for Jacob and Mose, who are now in good health and get to relax at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona while enjoying healthy food, great company and their new Cat Castle! Jacob climbs inside for a cozy hideout while Mose prefers to keep watch from the top. They can’t wait until they get to enjoy their Cat Castle with a family of their own.
