City of Buffalo Animal Shelter: Cat Castles Grant Report

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

The cat castles are being used in cat kennels, as well as transportation to their adoptive homes.

The cat castles have significantly improves our cats' well-being, as they now have a comfortable and clean place to hide in their kennels. This has been particularly helpful for our shy cats.

How many pets did this grant help?

The cat castles have helped all cats in our care since they were delivered in February. There is a cat castle in all of the cat kennels. To date, approx. 40-60 cats have benefited from the castles.

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

This grant has helped Raphie and Ellen (the black and white cats pictured). Both immensely enjoy playing in and around the Cat Castle. We set up a few in our meet-and-greet room so the cats could have a place to retreat if necessary. We’ve found that nearly all cats in the shelter are inside their Cat Castles or on top of them when they are in the kennels. Thank you, Petfinder Foundation and Jackson Galaxy!
