The past year was interesting to say the least. With all of the twists and turns of 2020, we are looking forward to starting fresh this year. While, like you, we are unsure of what the new year will look like in terms of COVID-19, we are optimistic about what is to come.
First and foremost, we are looking forward to sending even more pets to loving forever homes. Each year, we aim to unite as many families as possible with their perfect match, and 2021 will be no
exception. Through adoption events, community outreach, and pure determination; we plan to adopt more pets than any previous year in our 47 years history.
Our veterinary clinic is fully staffed and ready to roll! We are excited to share that our wellness program received a grant aimed at increasing access to care for the pets of families in need. This meshes well with our nationally recognized Help Center Program aimed at preventing animals from coming into care through the provisions of resources and services. In 2020, we prevented over 850 animals from becoming strays or ending up in shelter. We know this number is just the tip of the iceberg out there, so we are full steam ahead.
Last, but never least, we are working on ways to interact with the community in new and exciting ways. We are anxious to get our Humane Education programming back up; we have a new Community Cats Coordinator to assist with feral and stray cats; and we are bringing back our tongue-in-cheek fundraise – The Poop Show #2. What else will we come up with? The sky’s the limit! No matter what 2021 has in store, we plan to make it one of the best years yet at the SICSA Pet Adoption and Wellness Center. We cannot wait to share every moment with you!
