SICSA Pet Adoption & Wellness Center
    Funded 2022, 2024

    SICSA’s mission is to promote the welfare and adoption of companion animals and nurture loving, lifelong relationships between animals and people. SICSA was established in 1974 as an alternative to the traditional animal welfare system and has served the Miami Valley region in southwest Ohio for 50 years. It offers numerous animal-centered programs and services, including adoption, humane education, low-cost veterinary services, and a help center to divert intake from shelters and keep pets in homes.

    The SICSA Pet Adoption & Wellness Center’s Community Veterinary Care Program helps provide preventative and screening veterinary care for senior dogs owned by families in need. Studies show that one in four households struggle to access veterinary care for their pets. With about half of pets in the country today aged over 7 years, many senior dogs have unmet medical needs. By providing affordable veterinary care in underserved locations in the Dayton, OH area, SICSA will help senior dogs like Daisy receive veterinary care that they otherwise would not have had access to, thanks to funding from Grey Muzzle. Through this program, Daisy was able to get her vaccines updated, senior blood testing, and dental care. Grey Muzzle’s support will allow SICSA to provide care for many other senior dogs in need in the community.
