Tornado Relief Update

We have been busy at SICSA with tornado relief and wanted to update you.  With your support, we have been able to meet a great many needs including, but not limited to:

  • Provided almost a pallet of dog and cat food to the Dayton Food Bank for distribution.
  • Signed up with the American Red Cross to provide supplies and housing for animals in need.
  • Fielding calls through our Help Center covering a myriad of needs including veterinary support, supplies, and temporary housing.
  • Working with specific cases of housing and intake need.   To date, we have provided housing or intake to over a dozen animals as a result of our tornado relief efforts.

We would not be as successful at helping our furry friends without your donations, thank you!  We also want to thank those of you providing boots-on-the-ground support including helping us with the transportation of needed supplies and information.  Our staff and volunteers remain committed to the needs which are still forthcoming.  We will work to keep you updated as much as possible. To learn more about the ways we have been helping, view our Facebook album here.

Baby Girl says thank you to those supporting her temporary placement while her owner is staying with relatives.

A cat owner whose home and veterinary clinic were a part of the tornado destruction needed a special kind of food for her cat.  We were able to provide this food so her cat’s health-related diet can be maintained.

Donations of all kinds are still coming in and we are getting them out the door.  We have teams of staff and volunteers going out next week to deliver a second round to those in need.

We are providing all kinds of kennels and cages for animals in need of transportation or temporary housing.  This has been the 2nd largest need.

We were asked by Momma Blue’s owner to help find a home for her post their displacement.  Paws crossed, she is on a slumber party.

Ellen and her kittens were brought to SICSA after the tornado.  We were asked to find all of them homes.  Ellen is ready, but her kittens are in foster awaiting their second set of vaccines.
