Franklin County Humane Society: Cat Castles Grant Report

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

The Cat Castles have been used for all new incoming cats, and we also send then home with the cat/kitten when it gets adopted.

The grant helped in many ways for our incoming cats; a lot of them are shy or afraid and normally try and hide behind or in their litter boxes, and since we have the Cat Castles they feel safer and come around a lot quicker!

How many pets did this grant help?

So far the Cat Castle grant has helped about 65 cats/kittens and pregnant mommy cats.

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

We have one cat who really was so happy to have a Cat Castle: Her name is Spirit she was brought to us by Animal Control after being left behind in an apartment locked in the bathroom with no food or water, and very pregnant. Spirit was sent into a wonderful foster home, where she loved to lay either in or on top of the Cat Castle, until she had her babies. At first she had three babies, and then 58 hours later came out little orange “Pokey.” And just yesterday, two little orphans came to the shelter and Spirit’s foster mom said she will take them and see if Spirit will take them on, and she did! After all this cat has been through, she is the most loving and caring mother cat we have had!
