How many pets did this grant help?


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

Thelma, along with her buddy Louie, was found on our doorstep. Thelma was in our second yoga4cats event. That event was covered by Ruptly TV (international media) and the video went viral. It can been seen at and also on YouTube. She was definitely the star of that event! She had a unique stature as well — short little legs that didn’t exactly help her with “feline agility” — but her outgoing and friendly personality made her a shelter (and yoga) star! Thelma’s participation in the yoga event and subsequent video stardom helped us highlight the many wonderful attributes of cats in our shelter and increased adoptions! Thelma has been adopted.
