Wayne County Humane Society: Cat Enrichment Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We used the money to purchase Kuranda beds for cats.
Many of our cat cages aren't equipped with ledges or shelves. Being awarded this grant allowed us to purchase raised beds, which significantly increased the floor space for our cats.
How many pets did this grant help?
We save more than 1,000 cats a year. Since the beds are sturdy and reusable, the number of cats this grant helped is endless.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
In late October, we took in 29 cats from a single-family home. Most of the cats were sick and somewhat fearful. However, after having these beds to climb, play and sleep on, many of them came out of their shells. One cat in particular used to sit in her litter box. Her name is Charity and, although she hasn’t been adopted just yet, we are positive her new profile photo of her standing proud on her Kuranda tower (first photo) will get her adopted in no time. She is now the sweetest, most loving little girl ever! Meet Charity here.
