Animal House Cat Rescue and Adoption Center: Cat Chow Building Better Lives Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Waived adoption fees
This grant helped our organization promote senior and special-needs cats. We also extended the grant to cats who had been at our facility for more than two years. It was an extra incentive for successful adoptions and we hope that the new owners will use the waived adoption fee for continuing care of the cats.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Crawdaddy (first photo) is the most recent cat to benefit from this grant. He was born at our facility and had been here for four years. We actually consider him a bit of a mascot around here and, although we are elated that he has found his life-long home, his departure is bittersweet. He suffers from infections around his eyes and chin that, after many treatment attempts, were found to be the results of a severe skin allergy. He has grooming issues and will need consistent help with the areas he doesn’t clean. His new owner is a nurse and an ideal candidate for continuing his care. Thank you for supporting cats like Crawdaddy who get a second chance at a great life!
