OMHS is Awarded a Grant!

The St. Croix Valley Foundation has awarded Ocooch Mountain Humane Society a grant of $2000 to help equip the two Isolation Rooms and the two Intake Rooms at the new shelter building on Clarson Street in Richland Center. The grant is made possible by the Humane Society Grant Program and represent a distribution from the Belisle Fund of the St. Croix Valley Foundation. 

OMHS is grateful to the Grant Program for the award which is instrumental in providing needed dollars to equip these important rooms for cats and kittens as they enter the care of the organization.  The cats and kittens are examined by a veterinarian as soon as they are under the care of OMHS. 

The Isolation Rooms are used for cats and kittens that may have a contagious conditions such as ring worm, a very common fungal condition for young animals, ear mites, or a respiratory condition.  The cats or kittens are confined to an isolation room for treatment until it is safe for them to be introduced into the general population in one of the cage-free rooms at the shelter.  Thus the term, isolation room. These  rooms are just that.  The rooms isolate the cat with a contagious condition from the general population of cats and kittens. 

The Intake Rooms are for healthy cats that have just come under the wing of OMHS. The two Intake Rooms are a kind of transition area for cats to become acclimated to indoor life.  The cats and kittens are evaluated regarding their initial social behavior to the strange and new environment.  If the cat or kitten is shy or frightened, care is taken to meet the cat on its own terms and not over-power it with unnecessary handling to begin its transition to indoor life.  Cats and kittens are very sensitive to environment and OMHS takes special care in helping the animals learn about safety and trust.

Please watch for the announcement of the Open House for the new shelter building, a wonderful building in which the entire community will take pride.
