Grant helps animal shelter cats

Homer Animal Friends board members and volunteers would like to thank the Homer Foundation for facilitating our recent grant from the Constance M. Benston Fund. We also thank the Constance M. Benston Fund for awarding the grant to support the animal shelter cats.

The grant from the Constance M. Benston Fund allowed the shelter director to buy three cat trees where the cats sleep, play and just hang out. In addition, a four-month supply of canned cat food was purchased. The shelter staff adds a dose of L-Lysine to the canned cat food to boost the cats immune system and the result has stopped the upper respiratory problems so prevalent in animal shelters. The cat trees and canned food both add to the health and well being or all our shelter cats.
