Animal welfare in Dayton and the surrounding areas has reached a critical point.  We need YOU to add your voice to the future of SICSA.  When you become a SICSA Member, you are not only investing in the mission of SICSA, you are helping to pave our path.  SICSA Membership isn’t just a fundraising effort; it is part of the bylaws by which we were founded 45 years ago.  Your Membership provides you the  opportunity to have your voice heard.  It provides you with the opportunity to be a part of our community’s animal welfare movement. Membership gives you the opportunity to save more lives.

So what does being a member entail? Let’s let the SICSA Bylaws speak for themselves:


Membership in this society shall be open to all who are willing to support the Mission Statement, Principles and Beliefs and Objectives of the Society.  A member in good standing is  a member who has paid membership dues within the twelve-month period ending with the Annual Meeting.

New this year, SICSA members in good standing may choose to join a closed, All Members Facebook group and monthly e-newsletter.  Both will include year-to-date outcomes, will respond to comments, questions, and suggestions from other members,  and are part of our ongoing transparency and member engagement efforts.  Have a question, post it.  Have a concern, raise it.  Have a suggestion, share it!  These forums are for members-only.

Your membership with SICSA provides a voice, avenues for active engagement, and the opportunity to be a part of cutting edge animal welfare.  But most of all, your membership speaks for animals like Bunker who need a second chance.  Your membership saves lives and builds families right here in the greater Miami Valley.

So, please step-up today. If you have never been a member, try it at the Basic Level. Were you a Guardian Member last year? Then please consider stepping up to the Champion or Benefactor Levels. Our Pack is only as strong as our membership.

Bunker came to SICSA in 2016 when he was a spry 9 years old. He was adopted, only to find himself back at SICSA a few months later. That wasn’t the outcome we wanted for Bunker at that time, but it was okay. We all know life happens, and that things sometimes don’t work out. Bunker’s SICSA Pack was there for him, and ready to help him find another chance at forever. That opportunity took some time, but as our Bunker found out, the best things in life are worth the wait. Adopter Kathy Coffee recently shared that Bunker “is the sweetest and most loving guy ever. He was pretty sad when we first got him--he seemed to miss his family, or at least a special person from his prior family. We spent a lot of time cuddling and reassuring him. [But] quickly he adjusted to his new home and his new family!” Today, Bunker is a 12 year old couch potato who isn’t afraid to hog the bed and loves to walk to the bus stop to pick up the kids after school.
And none of that would be possible without you and your membership.


Bunker's story is a perfect example of why SICSA membership matters.
