Crash's Landing: Purina and Amazon Treats for the Holidays Grant Report

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

At least two tubes of Friskies Party Mix Treats are now included with each adopter goody bag given to people who adopt our cats. Adopter goody bags include the following: Information to help with the transition of their new cat, a bag of food (Purina Indoor Cat Chow) to either keep their new cat on the same food or to help transition them to a different food, toys, two or three tubes of Friskies Party Mix Treats, and two cans of Friskies food.

Our cats always need food and treats! We are grateful for the opportunity to add Friskies Party Mix Treats to our adopter goody bags, as this is our way of saying thank you to the people who care about our cats and give them good homes. We find that goodwill gestures like this go a long way in our field. Cat care isn't cheap, and the goody bag adds a nice touch. Including quality treats that our cats enjoy introduces the adopter to something they may not otherwise think of purchasing.

How many pets did this grant help?

From December 2015 through February 16, we adopted out 45 cats.

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

Wimbledon and Fenimore: Bill and Marilyn’s two cats crossed the rainbow bridge together just over two years ago. It was extremely hard on both of them because they’d had these wonderful girls for 18 and 20 years. They were both rescue cats that Marilyn found near their home in Ada. They did some traveling, then when they were ready they contacted us to get their next set of furry family members.
