RASKC employee secures ASPCA grant to help cats

Records and Licensing Services’ Nickie Ford, Animal Services Coordinator with RASKC, did the due diligence and good work necessary to gain approval for a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals worth $6,700. The grant will cover the cost of retrofitting stainless steel kennels with portals, joining adjacent kennels and creating multi-room “kitty condos” similar to those recently purchased through a Petco Foundation grant.

The ASPCA grant will cover the cost of 50 portals installed, and the installation should be complete by the end of summer. The cats will then have more room to move around, experience less stress, be happier and get adopted more quickly!
