Earlier this year, we were faced with a family situation that necessitated finding new homes… [for] our 10 years old [cats], a tortie named Juniper who was adopted within approximately 4-5 weeks, and Milo, a buff colored male whose passion was fetching and returning crumpled balls of paper.

While at SICSA, Milo, who was normally quite outgoing, became withdrawn and exhibited behavior that would normally render him questionable for adoption. This was despite my wife’s best efforts to visit him every 1-2 days… Despite the odds, SICSA kept Milo and continue to try to adopt him out, which he eventually was after an 8-10 week stay.

At any other shelter, Milo’s life would certainly have ended prematurely, as perhaps would have Juniper’s. We cannot adequately express our gratitude for the efforts of everyone at SICSA in finding these creatures, who have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own, a new home and by doing so, providing them a second change at a full and rewarding life.

Juniper and Milo’s story is a perfect example of why SICSA membership matters.

As we start our 2018 membership drive, we ask you to remember that your membership saves pets’ lives right here in the Greater Miami Valley. We wouldn't be here without your support. Whether it is a 20 dollar bill or $20,000, it all goes towards helping our pets in need, their families and our community.

Your membership matters.

Together, we have provided sanctuary, sterilized, and found loving homes for over 55,000 pets. We have also sterilized another 65,000 pets in the community through our Spay/Neuter Programs, and provided humane education to almost 20,000 young people in hopes of preventing homeless animals in the future. And because of your support, over 1 million pets have been kept from euthanasia.

Please, become a 2018 SICSA Pet Adoption Center Member TODAY. It Matters!
