Cat rescue grant made
Columbia Gorge Cat Rescue, a nonprofit volunteer group dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned, neglected and injured cats, has been awarded a $12,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its spay/neuter and adoption programs, according to a press release.
“We are unique in that most of our funding is spent on cat and kitten care,” said Jen Schwab, the group’s board president. “The Petco Foundation grant will allow us to continue this goal.”
Columbia Gorge Cat Rescue does not operate a shelter and is soley funded by donations and grants.
The organization spayed/neutered more than 616 cats in 2018, and placed 330 cats in new homes.
