Humane Society of Greater KC: Cat Enrichment Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The money from this Cat Enrichment grant was used to purchase Kitty Kasas for our shelter cats.
Kitty Kasas provide our shelter cats with a safe space, which has been shown to help reduce stress. We also purchased some "recreational" Kasas, which include scratch posts and dangling poof balls for the cats to play with. This is all in an effort to help make our cats as comfortable and as happy as possible while they are in our care.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Two cats, sisters named Vivian and Vanessa, were recently taken in by our shelter after our outreach team found them abandoned in our community. They love each other and are awaiting adoption as a bonded pair. Because of this, they have not been integrated into our general population and instead have been hanging out in the offices of some of our cattery attendants. Lucky Vivian and Vanessa were the first cats to experience the new Kitty Kasas! We’ve attached some photos, but I think it’s safe to say they have the Vs’ seal of approval!
