All About Spay Neuter, Inc.: Cat Chow Building Better Lives Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The grant was used to lower the adoption fees for the past two months.
By lowering the adoption fee, we drew in many more adopters, and got many adults who have been in our care adopted. People got a chance to see how wonderful an adult cat can be and I feel the lower adoption fee made the potential adopters look at the adults.
How many pets did this grant help?
Twenty-five (25) cats and kittens found new forever homes.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
The first picture is of Nadene (now named Maya). Nadene was a kitten that was recently returned to us, since the woman got married to a man that had a dog that hated Nadene. She came back to us a little over one year old. She was not doing well at all in our shelter, being used to being an only cat. A family came in and fell in love with Nadene and now she has her forever home.
Recently a woman found six kittens, approximately four months old, in a box. She brought them to our shelter and we immediately took them to our vet to make sure they were OK. They were all in good condition except two were a little unsocial and scared. We socialized all of them, and within two weeks all six got adopted. Two were adopted in pairs and two were adopted separately. The second picture is of Gabriella and Gavin, male and female siblings that got adopted together, and the third picture is of Gunther, who was one of the single kitties that went home alone.
The fourth picture is of Denise. Denise is a beautiful kitten that was a litter of five kittens. We trapped the feral mother cat and let her nurse the kittens until they were old enough to eat on their own. All of Denise’s sibling were adopted immediately, but for some reason, Denise was overlooked. In January, Denise’s adopter walked through our doors and fell in love with her. All of our volunteers were so happy that she had finally found her forever home.
