Save the Cats AZ: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

Adoptable cat Kitty was in the adoption center at PetCo. She needed to see the vet and get her immunizations current so she could be ready for adoption.

Updated health records are required for all adoptable pets who spend time in the adoption center waiting to meet their forever families. Having healthy, happy, adoptable pets reassures potential adopters that the rescue pets in our care are coming with a clean bill of health, promoting adoption into a caring home.

How many pets did this grant help?

These funds helped two cats: Kitty was adopted by a great family who just adore her, and now a spot is open in the adoption center for another rescue pet who is ready to find a forever home.

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

Kitty is a senior gal whose owner had some unexpected life events and was no longer able to care for the cat she’d had for more than 14 years. Save the Cats Arizona was blessed to be able to offer a safe haven for Kitty so she could be adopted into a loving home. Her owner was beyond relieved and thankful that this precious little one would be taken care of. This sweet lady captured the hearts of her caregivers and those who came to meet her. After a few weeks at the adoption center, an inquiry came in via Petfinder from Tracy, who was seeking a senior cat as a companion for her own senior cat (who had recently lost her lifelong senior feline companion). Tracy has sent updates that Kitty is fitting in with the family just fine! She sleeps on the son’s bed and comes down to the kitchen for breakfast and to bird-watch out the window. Perfect — we love a happy ending!
