Grafelman Farms Rescue: Grant Report

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

We used the funds to reduce the adoption fees for cats and kittens. The funds were especially helpful for our adult cats, whose fee we were able to reduce to $30.

This grant was especially helpful when we had a panleukopenia outbreak. Because of that, many of our foster homes were unable to take in small kittens and instead took in adult cats, many of whom did not have any place to go.

How many pets did this grant help?

12 adult cats

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

Maggie was a mama cat who came in, scared and frightened, with her kittens. As the kittens were adopted one by one, she was left alone. Not used to human touch, she was often quiet and aloof. Thanks to her foster mom, Dawn, she slowly started coming out of her shell. Dawn spent months with Maggie helping her to warm up and found her the most wonderful forever family, who have built her boxes to hide in when she needs to and plenty of comfy beds when she’s ready to come out and see the world.
