SAFE Haven for Cats: Stretch and Scratch Cat Scratchers Grant Report

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

Scratchers for the cats' enclosures.

We were able to use the Stretch and Scratch cat scratchers without having to purchase them ourselves; thus, saving the shelter money. The scratchers are very helpful to the cats in enclosures. They allow them to do a behavior that is so natural for them which makes them more comfortable and more adoptable.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Serena was very scared when she came to the shelter. She would hide in her litter box quite a bit. The scratcher was one of the first things she showed interest in. Once she came out and scratched on it, she continued to do so and volunteers were able to then work with her to help her become more adoptable.
