Save One Animal Rescue: Cat Chow Building Better Lives Grant Report

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

The grant allowed for waived or reduced adoption fees on shy or harder-to-place cats. This allowed the organization to not take a loss by doing so or by housing these already long-term cats much longer.

This grant helped our organization by allowing harder-to-highlight cats to have a reduced or waived adoption fee and promoting these cats with more ease. We prefer to have cats stay with us as short a time as possible so that they can get into their new permanent homes easily and never have to go through multiple transitions.

How many pets did this grant help?

14 adult cats

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

We assisted an ill woman by taking in her entire household of semi-feral/very shy cats. They all had fleas, ear mites, and were thin, not altered and terrified of the changes they were encountering. Heff (pictured, with friends), a Siamese mix, was one of the cats fortunate enough to benefit from this grant. He was adopted in a foster-to-adopt scenario and, although still adjusting to his new home, is doing well and is slowly coming out of his shell.
