The SICSA Satellite Adoption Program establishes semi-permanent, off-site adoption locations across the Miami Valley. The goal of the program is to increase the number of cats available for adoption by addressing space and access limitations which currently exist in our facility. Specifically, we are choosing settings which are neighborhood-focused and expand access to all types of families. The intent is to make adopting a pet more convenient and accessible, as well as to help more homeless cats find loving homes. The program will start by placing adoptable cats and kittens in community businesses such as veterinary clinics, groomers, and pet stores. Later we will add additional locations in a variety of settings.
The Satellite Cats program will save the lives of over 300 additional cats in Montgomery County. As a result of these added adoptions, fewer cats will be euthanized in our community. If the community intake rate stays the same, this will cause a 21% drop in the community euthanasia rate – from 66% down to 47%.
The SICSA Satellite Adoption Program is made possible thanks to a generous Rachel Ray Save Them All grant from Best Friends Animal Society.
Our cats will normally stay at the satellite locations until they are adopted. They are fully vetted by our dedicated vet team. Every animal up for adoption is spayed or neutered, receives age appropriate vaccinations, has a microchip, and additional individualized care, as necessary. Volunteers, counselors, and store employees care for the cats every day. This care goes beyond simply sheltering animals. SICSA and our satellite adoption locations enrich the lives of the animals in our care, helping them become ready for adoption and finding that forever home they deserve.
Our cats who are located in the satellite locations are available any time during store hours. Store employees are there to assist potential adopters, start the application process, and pass applications to the SICSA adoption counselors. Click here to find out more about our adoption process!
