Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter: Cat Enrichment Grant Report

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

We were able to purchase 10 Kitty Kasas Bedroom Cubes and four soft beds.

By providing our shelter cats with Kitty Kasa Duro Bedroom Cubes, we significantly improve their overall wellbeing and increase their chances of finding forever homes. These durable and spacious cubes create an environment that promotes happiness, relaxation, and better health for our feline friends. It's a well-known fact that cats love cozy hidey spots, and the Kitty Kasa perfectly caters to that instinct by offering a safe and comfortable place for them to retreat and decompress. A contented and calm cat is much more likely to capture the hearts of potential adopters, leading to faster adoptions and brighter futures for these deserving animals.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Becky (first photo) is a beautiful white cat with adorable eyebrows! While she may not be shy, Becky tends to get overstimulated in the company of her roommates.

When she needs to decompress and relax, she enjoys spending some quiet time in her very own Kitty Kasa. You can find more information about Becky and how to adopt her on Petfinder.

On the other hand, we have Buzz (second photo), a playful tabby cat. Recently, Buzz got a little too excited during an interaction with a potential adopter and accidentally broke the person’s skin with a playful bite.

As a precautionary measure, Buzz is currently under a 10-day quarantine period. During this time, he has been provided with a spacious condo and not just a new Kitty Kasa but also a comfortable Kitty Kasa bed where he can unwind and have some alone time.

Once the quarantine is over, Buzz will be available for adoption, and we are determined to find him a forever home with cat-savvy individuals who understand and appreciate cat language. We absolutely adore Buzz and want nothing but the best for him!
