Happy Cat Project – Kanawha Charleston Humane Association: West Law Firm Matching up to $1,000 in Donations

Now that the Kanawha Charleston Humane Association has proven it can Kitty playing in the flowerssave 90% of the animals in its care, it’s now seeking to provide a better quality of life for the puppies, kittens, dogs and cats it cares for. Cats are the animals most in need right now at KCHA.

Did you know that adult cats need a minimum of 28 x 30 inches of open floor space just to be able to sit, stand or lie down in a normal posture? That means, 28” x 30” excluding the space occupied by food and water dishes, bedding, and litter boxes. (UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program)

By comparison, the smallest cages at KCHA are only 22” x 28”. So, adult cats are unable to assume normal postures in their cages. Litters of kittens are also unable to play, and nursing moms are unable to focus on kitten care.

Help Us Give Kittens & Cats The Space They Need

In partnership with West Law Firm LC, the Kanawha Charleston Humane Association is leading a project to create two-compartment housing for KCHA’s cats. Using a simple tool called a “portal,” we’ll convert KCHA’s current, tiny cages into two room “condos” to optimize cat comfort.

Two room condos will do more than improve the happiness of kittens and cats. The larger space will also:

  • Increase adoptions!
  • Reduce length of stay
  • Dramatically improve health and welfare of sheltered cats
  • Reduce daily operating costs
  • Create a more welcoming environment for visitors and volunteers

Each portal costs $50, and we need 46 portals to convert our cages to two room “condos.” The total project cost is $2,300.

Installing these portals transforms the cages into two “rooms.” By doubling their space, cats are less stressed, less likely to contract upper respiratory disease, appear happier, and in shelters nationwide, get adopted two times faster than before portals were installed. Portals cost about $50 each, and we would need just more than $2,000 to make this dream a reality in every cat cage at KCHA 🙂

West Law Firm has great lawyers. They helped me in my case and every time I needed to call or talk to someone they were willing to talk and help me in anyway. David is the absolute best. His communication was unbelievable throughout the entire process as well as his worth ethic. He took great care of me I would highly recommend him for any auto related injury. He continually fought for me and got me the settlement I deserved!

I've worked with other attorneys in the past, but West Law Firm has gone over and above my expectations! I was expecting the same old runaround about when somebody could get to my case. They kept me up-to-date about everything. They really worked for me and I would highly recommend them.
