Reports From This Organization

Angelico Cat Rescue, Inc.: Cat Enrichment Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

The grant was used to purchase many much-needed items for the rescue, including cat trees, window seats, and a large kitten enclosure.

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

So many of our items needed replacing and we could not afford to do so. The kitties did not have enough vertical access, as many of our cat trees and window seats had been thrown away as they became too old to be safely used. We also had no safe area where the kittens could roam freely. We only had small cages. The kitties are now enjoying new cat trees and window seats. We were also able to purchase a large enclosure where the kittens can be separated from the adults and still have room to explore. The grant was so appreciated!

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

Two kittens, Matthew (first photo) and Charlie (second photo), were very bonded and living in a large cage together. Once they had more room to explore in the kitten enclosure, they began playing more and their personalities really began to develop. They were adopted into a wonderful home soon after.

Angelico Cat Rescue, Inc.: KONG Toy Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

The Kong toys were used and thoroughly enjoyed by the cats and kittens at our rescue.

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

All of our cats and kittens loved the toys so much. With limited funding, especially since the pandemic, we are always in need of toys. These toys are very high quality and will last a long time. All of the cats liked them, which is unusual, as cats are finicky with their toys. It brought them so much stimulation and enjoyment.

Two of our kittens were not that playful and we were having trouble finding toys they liked. They loved playing with the Kong toys and it led to further stimulation with other toys. They did get adopted into a great home.
