Project Summary

Whiskers aims to create and assess a Grey Whiskers Senior Cat Program, comprised of a network of foster homes, hospice providers and adopters for senior cats, with a goal of rescuing and placing 120 senior cats. Medical support will be a key lever in making the program and placements successful, as the senior cat population often needs dental care, bloodwork, special diet and various treatments to see an increase in their quality of life and to thrive.
