FieldHaven Feline Center: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
FieldHaven Feline Center was awarded a $1,000 grant to be used to help promote the adoption of one of our senior cats, Lawrence Longbottom. The grant money will be used by his adopter to offset expenses associated with his adoption and care (e.g. vet appointments; testing).
Unfortunately, Lawrence has still not been adopted! This is despite multiple posts on Facebook (below) and our June 18th e-blast (which included a YouTube video). In addition, Lawrence was recently featured in the program for FieldHaven's annual donation-drive charity event, Classics, Cats & Cabernet, held on September 7, 2019.

How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Just over a year ago, Lawrence Longbottom’s life didn’t look so bright. He was wandering the streets of Sacramento and really needed help. He was taken to the University of California at Davis for medical attention. The veterinary staff fell in love with him, and that changed his life forever. UCD staff reached out to local shelters, asking if they would take Lawrence Longbottom. Lawrence soon found his way to FieldHaven, where he received the additional medical care he needed, as well as a lot of love from FieldHaven staff and volunteers. Being a senior guy, Lawrence doesn’t race around the house chasing toy mice; instead, he prefers to lounge on the couch with his person, watching TV or sleeping at the foot of the bed hoping to catch a glimpse of some birds flying by the window. Lawrence is a professional lap cat and is perfectly happy occupying a lap for the afternoon. If you are looking for a laid-back kitty companion and dedicated lap-warmer, please stop by and spend some time with Lawrence Longbottom. Just step into his room, put him on your lap and plan on staying for the day. He is FIV-positively adoptable and his adoption fee has been sponsored! All cats and kittens have received age-appropriate vaccines and are spayed/neutered and microchipped.
Lawrence is still waiting to find his furr-ever home. Meet Lawrence here.
