We were honored to be awarded 3 pallets of 9-Lives dry food from 9-Lives and the ASPCA!! As a small non-profit, we applied for the food grant but never thought we would be awarded anything and were THRILLED when we were chosen!

We ourselves feed about 200 cats in our fosters and feral cat colonies. We also passed along some of the food to a few other groups who also help low-income people who feed and maintain feral cat colonies, so we are ALL thrilled with this WONDERFUL GIFT!

Below are a few pictures of the day we picked up the food at the Big Heart Pet Distribution Center in Bloomsburg, PA. They were extremely helpful, especially Shelly Rainer, who arranged everything for us. The day was a wonderful experience thanks to you all and we can not thank you enough for your generosity and kindness for choosing up as one of the grant recipients!

Gratefully,

Thank you for your generous donation for the spay/neuter grant to help Animalkind in Hudson, NY continue their work with ferals. This grant will enable them to reach even more people in the community in need of help.
