The Gifford Cat Shelter is pleased to have been named a 2018 grant recipient by Athletes for Animals. This organization, founded by Boston Bruin David Backes and Kelly Backes, is a united team of professional athletes with a shared passion for rescuing and protecting the welfare of homeless pets nationwide. They raise funds to promote best practices in pet adoption and care and work to promote pet adoption and responsible pet ownership.
Our grant will help to provide spay/neuter surgery and vaccines for the many stray cats that we admit each year – and it couldn’t have come at a better time, with “kitten season” underway!
