SpayMart: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

Care while on transport

Tex and a dozen other cats went on a transport to a shelter in Maine that actually had a demand for cats. The transport went smoothly and most of the cats have already been adopted in Maine.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

The sponsored pet was Tex. Tex was dropped at the SpayMart Sanctuary as a very young kitten. He was all alone and the staff spent time with him as he grew and grew. He is a very sweet, affectionate boy. He was at the sanctuary for about four years and had not been adopted. In April of this year, there was an opportunity for Tex to go on a transport to a no-kill shelter in Maine, as that shelter needed healthy, adoptable cats. Tex was well-behaved on the transport, which took 36 hours, and he was adopted almost immediately upon his arrival. SpayMart is happy that the love and attention that Tex received at the SpayMart Sanctuary made him a favorite on the transport and gave him the opportunity to find a forever home.
