We used this grant to reduce pet adoption fees so that more of our kitties could get adopted during this time.
This grant allowed 20 cats to get adopted with a reduced adoption fee. Due to the financial challenges of COVID-19, it was helpful to allow adopters a break on their adoption fees and place 20 kitties into loving homes.
During this time, we took in a family unit of 25(!) cats — five sister cats who lived in the same home and all had babies within a few weeks of each other. Our foster homes took in the cat families and nursed them to health. Thanks to the adoption grant, we were able to offer a reduced adoption rate for 20 of these kitties and I am happy to report that all 25 have been adopted! Specifically, we had one adopter adopt one of the mom cats, Lana (first photo), and thanks to the adoption grant, she came back to adopt a second mom cat, Izi (second photo) into her family!
