Universal City Animal Care and Control: Stretch and Scratch Cat Scratchers Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The cat scratchers were used in every cat cage upon the animal's impound and followed the cat through its time here at our facility. Upon adoption, the scratchers went home with the cat.

Every cat that came into the facility received a scratcher. This seemed to help calm the cats and give them an extra activity during their stay at our facility. When the cat left our facility for its forever home, the scratcher went with it, so it had something it was used to during the transition into another strange environment.

How many pets did this grant help?

Every cat that came into our facility received a scatcher. This seemed to help calm the cat and give it an activty while at the shelter.
