Project Precious Paws: Cat Enrichment Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

We shared the Kong cat toys with the cats we already had in our care and saved a couple for new cats.

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

The cats and kittens had a blast with the exciting new Kong cat toys. There were a few different designs in the shipment and it was fun seeing them discover each one. They are more interactive and interesting than the usual cat toys we receive. We also sent one toy home with a cat when he was adopted. We have a “cat room” for some of our less-adoptable cats; some are semi-feral and they had a great time playing with the new toys.

How many pets did this grant help?

Eleven so far.

Ares (first photo) is a huge flame-point Siamese who came into the shelter with his collar wrapped under his arm. It took a long time for the wound to heal (second photo), and once he was able to play, we gave him one of the Kong toys to try. We sent that toy home with him when he was adopted so he would have something familiar in his new home.
