Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

To save the lives of at least 300 cats per year. Because our cats are special needs, some will remain with Silver Cloud for the remainder of their lives.

To network within our community and online supporters to find adoptive homes for as many special needs cats as possible while saving the lives of those who are not adoption suitable.

Silver Cloud has a large network of foster homes as well as a sanctuary location.

We know that we are making progress with each cat that we're able to save, and each cat that we're able to place into a loving home.

We have saved hundreds of lives and plan to save thousands more in the coming years.
