About Salem's Community Cats

Salem's Community Cats is committed to improving the lives of feral, stray and owned cats, stopping the growth of the feral population through TNR, and finding every adoptable cat a loving, permanent home.

SCC was started as a Trap-Neuter-Return group to help control the feral cat population in and around the village of Salem, NY. Since being formed in the fall of 2019, we have expanded our services to include fostering and re-homing stray cats, helping provide spay and neuter services for financially strapped cat owners, and fostering mother cats with their kittens and placing the kittens into suitable homes. We are also hoping to start a barn cat program in the future.

We are 100% volunteer staffed and funded entirely by donations. We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, recognized by New York State as a public charity.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
