Animal Shelter Assistance Program: Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Two of our volunteers attended a photography workshop, received a camera and software.
The volunteers that attended the workshop really benefited from learning how to capture better photographs of the cats in our shelter. We already have some great photos as a result, which will help us with marketing adoptions!
How many pets did this grant help?
This is difficult to quantify. Our shelter takes care of approximately 1200 cats and kittens each year--and all of them get photographed!
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Our two volunteer photographers were busy the weekend of August 17-18 taking photos during our 3rd Annual Certified Pre-Owned Cat Sale (free adoption event). We adopted 43 cats and kittens that weekend and we have some great photos to use for publicity and marketing in the future.
We haven’t yet had time to utilize specific photos to achieve targeted adoptions of individual cats, however, we anticipate having some great adoption stories in the near future!
