Long Beach Felines: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

Supplies for the care of some of our long-term rescue cats.

Ongoing costs to carry our pets is our biggest expense. We keep each kitty until there is the right forever home, regardless of the duration -- a few weeks, even a few years. We have hope and know that there's a home for every rescue. The Sponsor a Pet grant is critical to our support.

How many pets did this grant help?

One very special cat: Dei-Z

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

The cat sponsored with this donation is Dei-Z. We rescued Dei-Z as a kitten from the wheel well of a car. She was happy and gorgeous, except for the car grease and dirt. She also had an obvious defect in her left eye. It took a year to get the issue resolved, so Dei-Z grew from a scruffy kitten into gorgeous Turkish Angora. Without enough exposure to people, she became shy. That led to a couple of her roommate kitties bullying her. Without a private foster home, Dei-Z learned to cope and she’s been with us for three years. We’ve recently been able to relocate all but one of the bullies and Dei-Z is opening up. All she needs now is a forever home with a patient, loving person!
