All About Animals Rescue: Cat Enrichment Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

We spent $1,000 on Amazon for over 1,000 toys. Each cat currently in the rescue was given $10 worth of toys to play with interactively and independently during their stay with the rescue.

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

Fosters work on high-fives, sitting, and rolling over so our fabulous felines can show off their skills and cuteness. We provide additional toys that cats can utilize independently, such as tunnels, towers with balls, and any kind of catnip-infused toys. This is especially helpful because we work with many community cats that are friendly enough to get adopted. Some of these cats arrive scared or not yet socialized completely. The play time with cats builds trust and makes adopters see the potential in shyer cats.

How many pets did this grant help?

This grant will assist over 100 cats.

Ghostrider (first photo) and his three siblings came in a trap to the Humane Society of Yuma. The shelter reached out to All About Animals Rescue to intake and work with these unsocial 6-week-olds. There was no space in the shelter for these cats to blossom. They came to the rescue as “popcorn” kittens, hissing and jumping at us every time they saw us. Fortunately, we had just received the Cat Enrichment Grant from the Petfinder Foundation. With lots of fun toys and love, these boys warmed up in one week! They are now available for adoption.

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

This grant provided food and litter to fosters who truly needed them. It also allowed us to purchase seven flats of vaccines instead of the five we anticipated. Because of this grant and the lower prices we were able to obtain, we were able to serve more animals, with the majority being cats.

Meet sweet mama Meeka (first photo). Because of your grant, we were able to accept her into AAA. She was on the street and acted feral until we were able to grab her. As soon as she was in her own space, this darling showed us her true colors. She was so very gentle with people and an amazing mother. Mom still has a job to do for the next five weeks, but in about two months, she and her kittens will all be vetted and ready to find their purrfect matches!

A few of these things are not like the other! Check out the cutest mixed litter EVER (second photo). All of these babies were born in the rescue and have the coolest foster mom. The foster loves to intermingle cats and dogs to great results. The puppies have a phenomenal mom who takes care of ALL the babies. These sweethearts will be available for adoption in about five weeks. We have no doubt they will go fast.

All About Animals Rescue: All-Star Dog Rescue Celebration Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

Microchips for 200 dogs.

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

This grant gave us the opportunity to take in additional dogs into our rescue. The $2,000 that was raised by All About Animals and earmarked for microchips was spent on 20 puppies with parvo. So in addition to assisting us with 200 dog microchips, you allowed us to save an additional 20 puppies who would have died from parvo.

Hello, my name is Siri (first photo)! I am a very sweet, outgoing puppy. I love to be around people. I like cats and other dogs. I am also good with kids. I am even doing well with potty training. I came to AAA from the local humane society. I was all set to go up for adoption and then I got parvo. Don’t worry, one of the AAA volunteers took me home and nursed me back to health! I had so much fun playing with kitties and eating baby food. I made a full recovery and am now in my forever home!

Bandito (second photo) was rescued from the euthanasia list at the local humane society because he had parvo. One of the volunteers for All About Animals treated Bandito for his parvo and he has made a full recovery. He is a very happy and active puppy. He likes to run and play with the other dogs at his foster home. He has spent time around cats, and he tries to play with them and they are not very amused. Luckily he has been adopted into his forever home!

Amore (third photo) is a beautiful and gentle giant. She was found VERY thin and so the goal is to get some calories in her. She LOVES everyone: adults, children, dogs and cats! She has lovely manners, is house trained, does not chew and really wants to please her people. She is a couch potato and a bed potato too! She needs to be meal-fed so that she does not eat to much and get ill. She was microchipped thanks to the Petfinder Foundation grant and now lives with two cat buddies in her forever home.
