Pet Adoption Thru Caring Hands: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report

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

The products were used for cats' resting spots in the shelter.

This grant helped our organization provide comfortable resting spots for our cats and kittens. Approximately 40 of our cats have enjoyed the pet beds so far. Intakes were then halted due to COVID-19, and the majority of the cats have been adopted out except for our "sanctuary" cats. This was due to the inability of volunteers to come to the shelter to care for the cats. We look forward to hopefully resuming normal operations soon.

How many pets did this grant help?

Approximately 40

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

This is Mouse enjoying his new bed thanks to the Petfinder Foundation and P.L.A.Y., which awarded PATCH these lovely beds as part of a grant. Mouse is a very sweet little guy who was picked up from the streets of Passaic, N.J., along with brother Moose and sister Monkey. They were born to a feral mom who has since been TNR’d. Before coming to PATCH to be put up for adoption, the three M kittens were cared for and socialized by one of our volunteers. Happily, all three kittens are healthy and very well-adjusted. Mouse has already been adopted!!
