4imprint Making a difference, one by one®. A big “thank you” to 4imprint for a $500 grant for promotional gifts for our events. Fun and useful gifts help us spread awareness and save more pets!
Thanks to a brand grant from Causality, Love & Cuddles Pet Respite Care received professional logo design to establish our new program. The grant provides $4000 of great marketing help that we could not otherwise afford. Professional design and branding helps our small organization in so many ways. We are ecstatic. Thank you!
Thank you, Maddie’s Fund for the $1,000 Shelter Animals Count Incentive Grant!
THANK YOU BINKY FOUNDATION!
On April 11, 2016, The Binky Foundation in New York notified us that Catnip Casa Cat Refuge has been awarded a $2,500 First Steps grant for the Love & Cuddles Respite Care program. This grant will improve the equipment and facilities at the intake foster home and provide equipment to loan our foster homes for emergency placements.
The First Steps Grant Program is designed to help small, local organizations get a firm basis for future sustainability or to help expand or perpetuate an organization’s ability to perform its mission.
Yet frequently the smallest efforts properly focused can become the seeds from which substantial efforts grow. At The Binky Foundation we recognize that the resources for starting an initiative are often the hardest to obtain.

This grant will allow us to keep more pets, like Baby (below), out of shelters when the owner needs to be hospitalized to receive medical care. As you can see, she’s a bit camera shy. Baby got to go home after her owner got well–we want to make that happen for all of the owners and pets facing the same crisis.
Watch for photos and updates as this project takes place. This news is a perfect way to begin our day. 🙂
