Humane Society of West Michigan: Cat Castles Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
To purchase Cat Castle boxes.
It provided a space for the cats to "hide" and gave them a familiar scent through their stay with us. The boxes would be provided to the cats upon intake and then become what they went home in for adoption.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Oreo was a cat who was owner-surrendered. She was extremely shy and hissy. We gave her a Cat Castle box that she loved. Over the next few days, she would hide in her box but then started coming out and seeking attention. We believe that giving her space to choose whether or not she wanted to interact had a positive effect on her and her attitude. She has since been adopted!
