Animal Nation, Inc.: Cat Chow Building Better Lives Grant Report

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

To waive the adoption fees for some of our long-term cats who have been waiting for homes.

We hoped this incentive would encourage folks to adopt them -- and it did! It's hard to get people to look at older adult cats when there are many young cats or kittens. This incentive was so helpful for our adult guys.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

My favorite adoption that was a result of this grant is Ryder, a 4-5 year old calico cat dumped at a vet’s office, whom we had in our care for 10 months. She was continually overlooked for younger cats and kittens, and she needed a specific home: one with no other cats or small kids, as she likes attention on her own terms. The purrfect family saw my flyer with the waived adoption fee thanks to this grant and the rest is history — they adopted her and were the perfect fit! I’ve attached the graphic I made that shows her waived adoption fee — and a few others of her happy tale 🙂
