All About Cats: Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
This grant was requested to help us find a forever home for two senior cats who came to us after their owner, a former rescuer, died and her son surrendered her cats to a county shelter.
All About Cats has invested more than $5,000 in their care to date. At this time Midnight and Charm are still waiting for their forever home; the funds from this grant will make it easier to place them in a forever home and allow us to make space to save more cats.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Midnight and Charm’s owner, a former rescuer, died and her son surrendered her cats to a county shelter. Midnight and Charm had ringworm and needed dental care, including multiple extractions. Charm also had skin issues that require medication and a special diet.
Charm and Midnight’s medical care cost our small rescue more than $5,000. As a result of our investment in them, they should only require routine veterinary care, along with prescription food, when they go to their forever home.
While Midnight and Charm have not been adopted yet, the money set aside from this grant will make it easier for the right person to say yes to them.
Charm and Midnight are now in the adoption center at our PetSmart location and are beginning to get a lot of attention. We think it’s just a matter of time before this sweet pair find their forever home.
