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

Urban Cat Relief received a call about an emaciated pregnant cat. She was trapped and brought to a foster home where she gave birth that night. Sadly out of four kittens born, just two survived. The grant money allowed us to cover costs of vet examinations, buy good quality food for the mother cat to eat while nursing and cover the cost of her spay and vaccines after she weaned her kittens. The remaining two kittens grew up very strong and happy. Mother cat has since been adopted and her two baby boys were also adopted together into a great home.
