Animal Ark Rescue: Cat Chow Building Better Lives Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
To offset the free-with-monetary-donation adoption fee for cats and kittens.
Your grant has made such a difference in so many lives saved. We were able to commit to all the kittens coming into the local animal control facility for the later part of last year. The promotion we did was “Free with monetary donation” and it allowed us to place altered cats and kittens into homes at a never-seen-before adoption rate. During the months of October through December we adopted out 150 cats and kittens, compared to 107 from January through September. This is in direct correlation to the promotion: Lower adoption fees result in higher adoption rates.

Ranger is an orange kitty who was born with deformed front legs. We were able to pull him from [an open-admission] facility and have him checked and vetted. We are located outside of Fort Benning and he is bobbing on his front legs — hence the name Ranger. Ranger found a wonderful, loving home with a military family that loves him very much (first photo, with girl).
