Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue: Petfinder 20th Anniversary Grant Report

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

The $10,000 Petfinder 20th Anniversary Grant was used for spay and neuter costs for 250 shelter cats.

In the first quarter of 2017, Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue has transferred 441 cats into the shelter, and 219 and of those cats were through the “Second Chance” program -- a 60% increase from the prior year over the same period. The shelter believes this rate of intake will continue throughout the year and Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue may spend close to $45,000 in spays and neuters of shelter cats this year.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Staten Island (first photo) is a 6-year-old male, domestic long-haired, sand-colored tabby. When he came to us at the rescue, he was completely matted. After a close shave and with his coloring, Staten Island is a handsome little lion cat looking for his forever home! He’s a total love bug, but would do best in a house where he can be the only cat. Meet Staten Island:

Brewtus (second photo) is a dapper 1-year-old tuxedo male. He is a very active cat, and is not shy about seeking your attention. This very chatty boy like to climb as well! Brewtus would be best in a household without another aggressive male cat. Meet Brewtus:

Zipper (third photo) is a regal 10-year-old female tabby who loves to hang out in the sunny spots in the shelter. She is a big lady! This chill cat would do best in a low-energy home with some mature, laid-back owners willing to let her just be herself. Her active years may be behind her, but she’s a healthy, happy cat who loves a chin tickle while she naps in the sun Meet Zipper:
