Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

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

To save the lives of at least 300 cats per year, and place as many of those cats into adoptive homes as possible.

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 utilize a public adoption center and attend many adoption events throughout the year.

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