Bond County Humane Society: Sponsor a Pet

What was the money or product used for?

Purchased enrichment items that were added to the community rooms Gizzy and Mystik reside in with other cats. We added baskets for hiding places.

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Provided items that enrich the cats’ lives and contribute to a low-stress environment while they are waiting for adoption. We have purchased baskets that are made for knitting supplies, but they work great as hiding boxes for the cats.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Gizzy, whom we estimated to be one year old, and her 4-week-old kitten, Mystik, were brought to us as strays in September 2018. Gizzy was caught in a live trap in a corn field. She has beautiful green eyes. She is easygoing and friendly. She likes to help the volunteers when they are scooping litter boxes or doing any other task. She is our little four-legged helper. Gizzy likes to be petted and will rub against everyone who enters the room. She gets along with all the other cats that live in her community room. Meet Gizzy here.
