Reports From This Organization

Salem County Humane Society: Cat Enrichment Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

We are in the process of renovating our cat rooms with expanded space for the cats, and we used your grant award to purchase three large cat towers from Feline Snoozers.

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

This PVC/vinyl cat furniture is comfortable for the cats and easy to sanitize. It provides much-needed vertical space for cats to have a place to relax and sleep even though they must share a room with many other cats.

How many pets did this grant help?

60 cats at any one time

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

The three photos uploaded show many of our cats enjoying their new cat tree. While they are at our shelter, all of these cats need space to relax, and the new furniture does that job well. Here are the URLs for cats pictured:

Salem County Humane Society: Jet.com Dog and Cat Food Grant (Invitation Only) Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

We fed the shelter pets in our care using this donated food.

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

The donated food is of higher quality than what we routinely purchase for our cats and dogs. The animals benefited by eating great food and the shelter benefited by saving thousands of dollars on pet food purchases. That money could instead be used to save more animals and paying for spay/neuter, vaccines and vet exams for many more cats and dogs.

How many pets did this grant help?

At any one time, 14 dogs and 60 cats were fed using Jet.com donations.

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

Frankie is only one cat who enjoyed the great food from Jet.com. In his picture, he is so excited about mealtime that he is singing (well, that’s what we would like to imagine!).

Salem County Humane Society: Bissell Rescue U Grant Report

What was the money or product used for?

The funding was used to renovate the entrance to our animal shelter, which was in dire need of repair. Volunteers had constructed this structure 15 years ago and drainage off the roof had not been properly channeled so that severe rot had set in around the door and at the corners of the structure. These mistakes were corrected in our renovation project.

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

We are very pleased with the improvements made to our building that were made possible by your generous grant. The public now enters our shelter through a neat and structurally sound entrance. This structure also serves as a safeguard to prevent our cats living in one of the group housing rooms from escaping out the front door. Without renovation of the entrance, it was likely that cats may have found their way out through the rotted exterior walls and we are relieved that this is no longer a threat to their safety.

How many pets did this grant help?

On average, 120 dogs and cats each year.

The grant was used to renovate the entrance to our animal shelter, which was in dire need of repair. The public now enters our shelter through a neat and structurally sound entrance. This structure also serves as a safeguard to prevent our cats living in one of the group housing rooms from escaping out the front door. The entrance way will allow potential adopters the chance to meet dogs like Stormie and cats like Milton.
