The Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS) is grateful to be the recipient of a grant that will allow them to help more homeless cats and kittens in the community this year. The $5000 grant provides the animal shelter with the ability to purchase state of the art stainless steel kennels for one of their feline quarantine rooms.
“Last year we helped over 1000 homeless animals, 650 of which were cats and kittens. While these abandoned cats and kittens are in quarantine we strive to keep them happy and healthy while preparing them for adoption.” stated Sonya Reichel, executive director for GTHS. “These kennels help us improve that process.”
The new kennels will be a benefit both to the sheltered cats and the numerous volunteers at the GTHS.
“Working with high quality equipment makes our job so much easier. The cages are simple to open and clean, which eases the physical strain from repetitive work. In addition, the cats are less likely to get sick allowing us to find them loving homes in a shorter period of time.” says Karen Fawcett, volunteer cat care technician with the GTHS for over 3 years.
The GTHS is thankful for the continued support from individuals, businesses and clubs like The Rotary Club of Collingwood. Relying solely on donations, this grant will make a lasting impact to their efforts in animal welfare.
