Senior Cat Action Network Inc.

After giving more than a decade of joy and unconditional love to their family, many senior cats wind up in shelters for any number of reasons. At a time when they most need and deserve a safe place to call their own, they find themselves in noisy shelters - alone and confused. Many of these cats shut down and never make it out of the shelter alive. A select few are lucky enough to be adopted, despite their "old age", and the final chapter of their life is what it should be - full of love, care, and compassion. Our goal is to give these cats every opportunity to find love again and remain safe for whatever time remains for them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proper cat care can be expensive. From routine vet visits to bloodwork to dentals, the annual costs typically rise as a cat ages. Often, long term medical issues (such as kidney disease or hyperthyroidism) or other terminal and non-terminal diseases start to arise in their senior years, driving the annual costs up much further. Some pet parents simply cannot afford the cost and feel no choice but to surrender their beloved cat to a shelter, not always realizing the likely result. Sadly, senior cats are often deemed "unadoptable" or "too expensive" resulting in rescues not always willing to pull them from shelters. This puts these cats at a high risk for euthanasia. Add on a medical issue (even a "minor" one), and the cat's chance of ever getting out of the shelter alive is very slim.


Senior Cat Action Network seeks to change this outcome in any way possible. As we start out, our assistance will be provided by partnering with rescues to provide much needed medical funds so that the aged felines in their care have the best chance for success at a new "retirement" life. Our future programs will include a Short Term Foster Program (to assist senior cat owners that are in difficult personal and/or financial situations), a Surviving Pet Care Program (for cat owners who have no family to care for their pet after they have passed away) and, ultimately, a senior cat sanctuary (where we will become a retirement home for cats adopted through our Surviving Pet Care Program and super seniors at risk for euthanasia in our country's shelters).  


The path to our long term vision is long, but we have a plan in place to ensure that each stage of our nonprofit lifecycle advocates for and protects senior cats. Our journey will allow us to build up our partner and donor bases so that we can expand our reach and help not only senior cats in our country's shelters, but also work to ensure that these wonderful creatures never have to be there in the first place. We would be humbled for you to join us in our mission to protect aged felines.  >^..^<

Senior Cat Action Network serves to advocate for "super" senior cats (typically aged 15 years and over) by partnering with rescues to fund the medical costs of aged felines in their care.
