Cat Depot: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Depending on the cat's needs, the money was either used for his or her care, or for a reduced adoption fee to increase the chance of finding a forever home.
During 2015, Cat Depot took in 1,420 cats and kittens and found homes for 1,333. Our free-roaming, no-kill rescue is dependent on contributions from individual donors as well as organizations, and every dollar makes a difference in the lives of the cats. This specific grant affected five cats, assisting with everything from medical care to getting them into loving forever homes.

The grant helped five cats: Kiwi, Pumpkin Puss, Debra Ann, Matthew, and Dolly. Pumpkin Puss (first two photos) came to Cat Depot when her owner could no longer care for her. We removed three bladder stones, which made her a much happier kitty. Finding a new home can be challenging for a black, 10-year-old cat, but she found a loving family. Today, she has a cat friend, snuggles with the family and sleeps in bed, and has a screened-in lanai for bird watching.
Dolly (third photo) came to us when her owner died, and the change in environment along with losing her loved human made her depressed. She spent a lot of time on the Cat Depot catios, hiding from other cats as well as visitors, and she needed many months to refind her cheerful self. After 14 months with us she found an adopter and her life turned around. Today, she is a cheerful princess who sleeps in bed, is surrounded by toys, and spends a lot of time purring on her owner’s lap.
