Safe Haven Cat Sanctuary: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The beds have been used to provide bedding for pets awaiting adoption.
The beds allowed for me to provide a comfortable bed for kittens as they wait for adoption. When they are adopted, the bed goes with them as it allows for an easier transition when they have something at their new home that is familiar.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Daphne was discovered cowering on the outdoor patio of a restaurant. She was approximately 6 weeks old. She was quite feral when I took her in and she needed to be kenneled in order to properly socialize her. She was provided with one of the pet beds for comfort, a cat tree for climbing, and toys, because as a feral, toys were foreign. Daphne was posted on my Facebook page because she had not yet been altered (I only adopt out pets who have been altered and vaccinated). One of my followers contacted me through Facebook the day before she was listed and Daphne ended up going to a home with another tortie. She is very happy with her new family and made a successful transition from feral to domesticated and socialized.
