How many pets did this grant help?


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

Oscar is a feisty 5-month-old kitten who was found abandoned in a trashcan when she was just a few weeks old. She was brought to MCPAWS by a good Samaritan and was soon placed in a loving foster home, where she regained her strength. Today she is a little firecracker who loves to play and wrestle with other kittens. While she is in her kennel, her favorite thing to do is to scratch on her Stretch and Scratch cat scratcher! These scratchers help Oscar stay busy while she waits to find a forever home. Thank you, Petfinder Foundation, for providing enrichment to cats and kittens like Oscar! Meet her:
