Transcript of Shelter Presentation - Cats R Cool Seattle Humane

Grant Opportunities
Cats R Cool Partners
It is impossible to determine how many stray cats live in the United States; estimates for cats alone range up to 70 million.

39 of U.S. households own at least one cat

6-8 million animals each year enter the US sheltering system
Over 1/2 don't make it out
70%-80% of all shelter cats are euthanized.

Fertile cats produce an average of one to two litters a year; the average litter size is four to six kittens.
The cost of spaying or neutering a cat is less than the cost of raising kittens for a year.
Only 10 percent of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered.
Less than 2 percent of lost cats are ever returned to their owners. Most of those returned were identified with tags, tattoos or microchips.

Many strays are lost pets who were not kept properly indoors or provided with identification.
The Cats R Cool program aims to elevate the status of the shelter cat, educate the community on cat adoption and improve the overall shelter experience for cats while they await their forever home.

Cats R Cool is about teaching people that cats make great pets, excellent companions and are full-fledged family members.

We are working to dispel negative stereotypes and make the situation for shelter cats better through public education, shelter outreach and grants.
Improving the lives of shelter cats through AWARENESS, EDUCATION and ADOPTION.

Cats R Cool is offering vaccination grants for FVRCP, FRV, Rabies, and more. When shelter cats are vaccinated on intake, it leads to a healthier shelter population. We hope to increase adoption rates by helping shelters nationwide with their vaccination programs.
Enrichment Toys
Freekibble.com was launched in 2008, as the vision of then 11 year-old, Mimi Ausland. Mimi wanted to feed the hungry dogs and cats at her local shelter. Today, the Freekibble Network reaches over 500,000 passionate pet-lovers. This loyal community has helped us feed over 10 million meals to homeless dogs and cats in shelters, rescues and food-banks across the country.

Halo Pet Food evolved from three guiding principles: balance, nature and love. Halo believes that when these are the basis of pet product development, optimum health, vitality and wellness follow.

Donating 10,000 meals for this event!
Shelter Beds
Unreal Lambskin shelter beds are soft, machine washable, foldable, and cut-able to fit the size of your shelter's kennels. These beds will help keep the cats in your care more comfortable while in their kennels.
When shelter cars are provided with toys that appeal to their instinctive desire to stalk and capture prey, they are stimulated and their mental and emotional health is enriched. Cats R Cool is teaming up with several companies to provide a variety of enrichment toys to shelters nationwide.
Grooming Products
By providing shelters with simple grooming products like ear, eye, and nose wipes, nail trimmers and brushes, we hope to increase the overall health of cats in shelters, and keep them looking their best for potential adopters.
Shelters and rescue groups may now
apply for cash grants to offset the costs of spay and neuter surgeries for their adoptable cats.

Cat Castles
The sturdy cardboard Cat Castle fits in most shelter kennels and gives cats a safe place to hide or sleep, away for their litter box, food, and water. Upon adoption, the convertible box becomes a carrier to transport cats to their new homes. The box can then be reassembles into its original configuration, helping acclimate the adopted cats to their new surroundings.

Stretch and Scratch
The Cats R Cool Stretch and Scratch kennel scratcher easily ties to kennel doors. We believe providing shelter cats with an in-kennel scratcher reduces stress. Sending the scratcher home with newly adopted cats also helps with the transition in to the adoptive home.
Cat Room Renovation
Cats R Cool is accepting applications for cat room renovations! We'll send the Rescue U team to your facility to reimagine and reinvent your cat room. Rescue U will tailor the renovation to your specific needs, and help create safe, open areas for your cats to stretch, play, relax, and meet potential adopters outside of the kennel.
Host training sessions to educate shelter workers about working with cats
