Our Mission Finding creative and effective ways to improve the lives of both wild and domestic animals.
What We Do
SCAT, a 501(c)3 organization, was founded in 2015 and is primarily a cat rescue and volunteer foster organization. We frequently take the ones with expensive veterinary care needs that no one else will take. (We take in other types of animals on occasion.) After getting kitties the veterinary care they need, which is often significant, they are loved and pampered with their foster families until they can be sent to our partner rescue organizations for adoption. We do not charge approved rescues for our kitties; we are simply pleased that they will have a chance to have loving forever homes. Occasionally, we do adopt to families in our area. Our adoption fee is $50 and the family must agree that the kitty will be indoor only and will not be declawed. We welcome inquiries! Our online auctions and fundraisers provide needed dollars for our very substantial veterinary and foster and travel expenses to transport kitties to New Hampshire and Massachusetts. We also support shelters, rescues and sanctuaries nationwide, especially in emergency situations (such as the North Carolina hurricane) with funds, supplies and volunteers. SCAT has no employees. We are 100% volunteers. SCAT is about sharing our love for all animals, but also sharing our talents and our bounty. And, as we come together in the spirit of giving, we form lifelong friendships. Each life is important and we are rewarded by knowing we are making a difference.
Most of our activities take place on our Facebook page; we hope you join us there!
For a starving extra-tiny kitten, a week of SCAT bottle feeding and love makes a world of difference. Follow Bitty's story on Facebook.
