Kitty Cat Prevent a Litter Society: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used this grant money to help adopt out our cats who have been in hospice care.
This grant allowed KCP to waive the adoption fee, to cover the costs of their medication for up to two months, and to provide food for up to two months and a visit with the vet after adoption to discuss the medical needs.
This helped our organization by removing a yearly cost of nearly $28,000 to care for these cats.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Rockstar, who was born on June 21, 2017, and was brought in to Kitty Cat PALS’ care when he was a kitten, was diagnosed with Feline Leukemia Virus. Rockstar had to have all his teeth removed due to this virus and has many food allergies. KCP has paid for Rockstar’s medical fees since he entered our care. We are all beyond thrilled, for many reasons, that he now has a forever home!
Sweet little Lemmon is the size of a kitten at 9 years old. Lemmon was found after being hit by a car. She came in to our KCP care missing all the pads on her feet, with no whiskers, half her hair missing, and broken teeth. She has severe allergies to just about everything. After much testing, analyzing and love, she has fully come around. (Although she still does not like other cats.)
We call Clifford “the ole man.” He is 15 years old. He came into our care in 2018, found abandoned after a drug raid, with rotted teeth, allergies and covered in fleas that lead him to have flea dermatitis. He is the sweetest old man around.
Henry is 8 years old and he came to us 4 years ago after he was found living under a house. He hardly looked like a cat upon arrival. Sadly, Henry has been diagnosed with kidney failure.
