HURRICANE HARVEY CONTRIBUTIONS
Thanks to all who have been responding and inquiring about how we can help the Hurricane Harvey Rescue Efforts.
We have been told that the shelters cannot handle tangible donated items at this time (dog and cat food, dog and cat beds, etc.). They do not have dry storage close by nor the time to wade through the donations. Instead, they have asked to direct people into making monetary donations. Once the waters recede, they will then take stock of what they need and potentially reach out for donated tangible items then. Please remember, they are still very much in rescue and crisis mode now. We are recommending donations be made to one of these two shelters who are currently in the eye of the storm (Houston SPCA or SPCA of Texas), as well as Austin Pets Alive! who took a lot of the animals in the first wave and could use support to care for them. SICSA will also be collecting monetary donations on their behalf. We are following the Coalition’s request NOT to send tangible items at this time. If we are called upon to help in either way we will alert the media and community and fill the van with supplies. Until then, please, monetary-only.
Thank you all for your support. It is so heartwarming to be a part of a community willing to help.
Last year, we helped 1,647 animals receive the love, attention and medical care they needed. We also spayed and neutered nearly 2,700 dogs and cats in our community. This year, we would like to help many more, but we need your help. Your contribution will help us feed and care for animals looking for loving homes, rescue animals in need, and provide humane education to enrich the lives of individuals and animals alike.

Guardian Angel Fund
The Guardian Angel Fund makes miracles happen. Homeless animals with special needs are too often the ones left behind. The time, cost of care, and resources required can make it very difficult for most shelters to care for the ones who need it the most. SICSA's Guardian Angel Fund specifically helps adoptable animals become adoptable, with the generous help from people like you in our community. These animals are worthy of our help and love, and SICSA gives them another chance at finding a loving, forever home. Your gift provides care for the animals that need it the most.
Use the donation form below to be a Guardian Angel today.

Charitable Planned Giving
Thank you for considering SICSA in your charitable gift plan. SICSA has been helping homeless dogs and cats in Kettering since 1974. Thanks to many donors like you, we can continue providing veterinary medical care for homeless animals and finding them loving adoptive homes. Your gift also helps the community by providing spay and neuter programs for low-income families, humane education for children, pet therapy visits to schools and hospitals and much, much more.
Your car donation directly benefits SICSA’s mission and programs and is tax-deductible as permissible by law. Our program is open to trucks, motorcycles, snowmobiles, recreational vehicles and jet skis too. The vehicle does not need to be in good working order.

Giving SICSA Guardianship of Pets
Many friends of the SICSA Pet Adoption Center who choose to make charitable contributions by bequest to the Center also ask about the possibility of entrusting their pet(s) to the care of SICSA after their death.
While SICSA’s first recommendation is to identify a trusted and willing friend or family member to care for your pet after your death, we recognize that this alternative is not always available. Therefore, the board and management of SICSA have adopted the following guidelines to help pet owners as they prepare their wills and consider their charitable giving.
