Humane Society of Northeast Georgia: Cat Castles Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We have used the Cat Castles to provide a safe transportation vehicle for our adopted cats and kittens to their new forever homes, and also to provide a comfortable resting area for felines currently in our care in our Adoption Center.
Our adoptable felines have enjoyed having the Cat Castles as part of their daily socialization and relaxation routine. The Castles give not only a "perching place" but also a comfy "hiding" spot that cats so enjoy. Offering the Castles to new adopters has been a new incentive that has created goodwill and PR on behalf of our Adoption Center and facility while, in turn, assuring our adopted felines have safe transportation to their new home as well as their own "special place" once they arrive at their new life-long home.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
We had one adult kitty named Bode who came into our facility as an owner surrender. Often surrendered adult cats have a harder time adapting to shelter life after being in a home environment. Bode would curl in the back corner of his kennel, and would not face adopters. After placing a Cat Carrier in his kennel, Bode would curl inside the bottom of the Castle, peeking his head out. He has now been adopted, and went home with his personal Cat Castle, which we hope helped him adapt to his new forever home.
