The Miami County Community Foundation granted $4,414 to Scratching Post Cat Rescue, Inc. of Peru.

The grant will be used to purchase new cages for the isolation area. When cats are brought into the building, they are first isolated in order to receive the proper care and vaccinations before they join the rest of the cats in the shelter.

scratchThe Scratching Post Cat Rescue, Inc. was established by Shelley Shircliff, who first began rescuing stray cats with kittens in 2005. In 2013, Shelley obtained her 501(c)(3) and moved her organization into a larger building in order to help reduce the feral cat issue in Peru. The shelter helps with veterinarian services and helps to find homes for stray cats in Miami County.

Scratching Post Cat Rescue, Inc. relies on donations, grants, and fundraising. It is also supported by a Miami County Community Foundation endowment fund, called the Scratching Post Cat Rescue Fund.
The Miami County Community Foundation is an affiliate of the Northern Indiana Community Foundation, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) public trust. The mission of the Community Foundation is to improve the quality of lives in our communities by assisting donors in fulfilling their charitable wishes forever. We do this by building endowment funds for our communities with contributions, both large and small.

Obviously I have first hand knowledge of the problem.

Quoting Kristy Cooper:
This business needs to finish their parking lot. Their employees, volunteers and patrons continue to park in the street and on the neigh ors private property. In addition, there is a 7 fold increase in the stray cat population since they started advertising a "cage free" business model.
I'd like to know where you got your information from. To be honest I don't believe you. Why don't you help? you seem to have all the answers.
