Cherished Cats Rescue Alliance: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The COVID grant helped cover utility expenses (electric and internet) and rent while our cat cafe was closed due to the pandemic.
We were able to keep some cats in the cafe rather than trying to transfer them to a foster space, and having a portion of our expenses covered helped us avoid pulling funds away from the care of the cats. Note that it's difficult to say exactly how many cats this helped, as the cafe is an ongoing adoption platform.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Tommy was rescued from the streets of Sunbury, where he had been bullied by other stray cats in the area. He was able to move into the cafe after he was neutered and vaccinated. Although the cafe was not open, we shared Tommy on social media, and he was happily adopted!
