The Cat House on the Kings: Shelter+ Challenge Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The money was used to help our community spay/neuter cats and dogs. Our community is the second highest County in the nation in the number of companion animals that are killed yearly. We have a low cost spay/neuter clinic that works with us and the community to fix & vaccinate animals to help reduce the euthanasia rate. We were able to fix and vaccinate over 35 cats and dogs with this generous grant for low income people. This will go a long way in reducing the amount of animals surrendered to shelters and killed this month.
This grant helped spay/neuter companion animals for our community.

A lady named Mary Bottoms contacted The Cat House on the Kings because a stray cat had kittens in her backyard, she was not sure what to do but did not want to have to take them to the high kill shelter in our area and The Cat House on the Kings currently cares for over 1,000 animals but because of your grant we were able to offer her low cost/free spay and neuter for this mom and kittens. She took the bus the 20 miles to meet at a local Petco to transport the cats to the vet to get fixed and vaccinated and took the bus again to pick them all up, all this in the 100 degree weather because she cared so much about them and didn’t want them to have additional litters of kittens. She has now provided them a wonderful and loving home.
