Thirty felines were adopted.

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

We were able to provide no-cost adoptions for four hard-to-place adult cats. These adults had been with us a while and each had some challenges that made them harder to place. One was deaf and very reactive, one was fearful, one has a chronic eye issue, and one was a little nippy! Each home was more than willing to work with the cat and ensure they had a good quality of life.
