Humane Society of Raleigh County: Mohawk Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
To replace flooring in the Cat Room. Total project cost $1,800. Grant paid $1,000.
With the grant money, we were able to completely redo our Cat Room. This is the room where our cats are primarily allowed to be free and not confined to cages. We still have animals that we have to cage in this room until spay/neuter process is completed, but others are allowed to freely move and have contact with potential adopters.
How many pets did this grant help?
The population in our Cat Room.
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Since our cats are allowed to roam freely in this room, they tend to actually pick the adopter they want. Now with the upgrade, potential adopters are greeted by an attractive room and loving cats. They are staying longer in this area and interacting more with the cats. This increased interaction time is allowing for our cats’ personalities to win over potential adopters; thus there are more adoptions. We can’t begin to express our appreciation for this assistance. Thank you!
