Pennington County Humane Society: Cat Castles Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Cat Castles used for environmental enhancement of cats in cages.
The Cat Castles were/are great in some of our cages, but are too large for most of them. We have put them out in our colony rooms and replace them once every week or so as they become scratched up, torn up, squished or otherwise made unusable.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Right now we have a batch of five kittens who are mostly unsocialized. Putting the Cat Castle in their cage provides them with a place to “hide” and definitely reduces the amount of stress they showed before we put the castle into their cage. We even have a couple of more brave kittens hanging out in the parapet portion of the castle. This is very encourging and helpful in our socialization attempts for them.
