The Bella Foundation SPCA: Cat Chow Building Better Lives Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The funds were used to reduce cat-adoption fees during the month of January.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to receive this grant. Our organization works with a foster-based program and uses PetSmart stores for our cat adoptions. We are surrounded by several local shelters and one bigger rescue group who are always doing free cat adoptions, which puts our cats in a position to not get adopted. We use local partner vets who give us great deals on having our cats altered, vaccinated, tested for FIV/feline leukemia, dewormed, and microcchipped, but to recoup the cost and pay them we have to place our cat adoptions at $75. For the month of January, due to your grant, we were able to adopt out 20 cats at $25 instead of $75, and this was such a blessing. I have attached some “Welcome home” pictures of some of the cats that we adopted out in January with your grant!
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
We had one cat by the name of Maize who was with us for over six months at a $75 adoption fee, and when we marked her adoption fee down to $25, she was adopted within the week.
