Animal Allies Humane Society in Duluth, Minnesota built an amazing catio for its shelter cats. The catio, along with a very cool doggie agility and play yard, came with a $27,000 pricetag. The money was raised from community donors, a fundraiser, and an American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) grant.
Animal Enrichment Coordinator, Nicole Facciotto, said “it’s really important for us to have something new for the animals to do, we always want to be moving forward.” Communications Manager, Michelle Sternberg, added “This really is the direction that animal welfare care is going.”
Let’s hope animals shelters across the country follow suit.
