In February 2016, Steelton Community Cats became the proud recipient of a 5th Susan Giblin Foundation for Animal Wellness and Welfare monetary grant. Last November, SCC applied for a $2,000 grant. The purpose of the grant . . . to offer our Trap/Neuter/Return services to colony caretakers who do not reside in our participating communities of Steelton Borough, Swatara and Susquehanna townships. For years, SCC has received phone calls from many people who needed help, had no idea where to go for help or were refused help to spay/neuter/vaccinate cats for one reason or another. And, as always, the main issue is money! Thanks to the Susan Giblin Foundation, we have been given the opportunity to tell quite a few callers “Yes, we can help you!”
SCC is honored that the Susan Giblin Foundation has recognized our organization for its Trap/Neuter/Return program for the fifth consecutive year. The four previous Susan Giblin Foundation grants totaling $8,700 were used to purchase equipment for our surgery suite. Now that that mission has been completed, SCC wanted to take a “Pay Forward” approach to helping people in the Central Pennsylvania area. We are so thankful that the Susan Giblin Foundation agreed with our thought process and awarded our organization the funding to reach out to those in need.
