Foundation forks out $30,000 for felines
CAT, which stands for Cat Adoption Team, located in Sherwood was recently awarded a $30,000 grant from Petco Foundation to support veterinary care for shelter cats and save more feline lives.
CAT is the largest feline-only nonprofit animal shelter in the Pacific Northwest. Since it was founded in 1998, the organization has helped more than 43,000 homeless cats and kittens find loving new families.
The Petco Foundation investment will help CAT to provide veterinary and behavior care to cats in need by funding expenses such as medical supplies, lab fees, behavior counseling and staff support.
"The cats that most critically need our help often have special medical and behavioral needs," said Karen Green, executive director of CAT. "This generous grant from Petco Foundation will help us save the lives of cats who need surgery, hospitalization for illness, or other treatment prior to adoption. And it will support staff expenses for our CAT Helpline, which provides advice and resources to keep cats in their homes."
Funds from this grant will also help offset the costs of CAT's signature events, Kitten Palooza and Whisker Wonderland.
