Cache Humane Society: Grant Report

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

This grant money went to providing foster families with all the supplies they needed to give their fosters excellent care. It went toward specialty food purchases, heating pads, whelping pools, and toys.

This grant helped us offer better care to all our foster families by providing specialty items that we don't usually have access to. It also helped us offer more items to more foster families.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Bandit, a boxer-pointer mix (first photo), had been in shelter with us for several months. Through this grant, we were able to provide her foster mom with training classes and keep her stocked on food supplies for the three and a half months Bandit was in foster. After searching for a new home for almost seven months, Bandit was finally able to get her fur-ever home (second photo). This would not have been possible without the additional training courses.

Our other happy tail is that of a small kitten named Gordy (bottom three photos). Gordy was placed into a foster-to-adopt home with his now fur-ever human, Rebekah, so that she could work on his human and dog skills. Gordy was also placed in a foster-to-adopt home because, at the time, we had limited access to spay and neuter surgeries. With the help of this grant, we were able to provide a well-rounded kitten diet and medication when Gordy got a small upper-respiratory infection.
