petsmart charities field grant awarded
We are so grateful to PetSmart District Manager Larry Wilkerson, who nominated Cat’s Cradle for a $2500 field grant – – thanks, Larry, and PetSmart Charities!!! With this grant, we were able to purchase a much-needed new microscope for our licensed vet tech, Christy Tabor, to use in doing in-house lab work for our kitties, saving on outside lab fees. We were also able to purchase a flat-screen monitor and two “kitty” cams to outfit our temporary downtown center, so that we can show live feed videos of our adoptable foster kitties in action! Because we are not able to have cats in person in our temporary center, we will rotate the kitty cams among our foster homes so that visitors to the center can “interview” our adoptable kitties on film. We really appreciate the funding from PetSmart Charities so that we can continue to keep our kitties healthy and find them wonderful furrever homes!
petco foundation grant awarded
GREAT NEWS! The Petco Foundation has made a $5000 grant to help Cat’s Cradle continue to expand
our spay/neuter and TNR programs in Augusta County. The grant will pay for direct surgical expenses for
spay/neuter procedures, as well as the cost of rabies vaccines needed, to be offset by client copays
where possible. Cat’s Cradle is committed to reducing shelter intake of owned and stray cats in Augusta
County and this generous grant will help to alter approximately 100 cats and kittens, thus preventing
thousands of litters of kittens. We are so grateful for the continued support of the Petco Foundation and its investment in our
lifesaving programs! For more information about the Petco Foundation, read below and visit
