#MonthlyMojo: Simply Cats Adoption Center

The Jackson Galaxy Foundation Monthly Mojo Recipient for December, 2016, is Simply Cats Adoption Center of Boise, Idaho

Jackson's Pick

Simply Cats Adoption Center got its start (with just six cats!) as Just Strays Animal Foundation, Inc., in the late 1980’s. By 2005, the name of the shelter was changed to Simply Cats Adoption Center to reflect its feline only animal population.

Thanks to generous donors, a new state of the art building was constructed and donated and has been their home ever since. Today, Simply Cats Adoption Center shelters over 100 cats and kittens and operates due to the hard work of a small staff and over 100 dedicated volunteers. Their current facility houses 10 cageless adoption rooms with an indoor/outdoor (contained) area.  At any one time, each adoption room generally houses 6 to 8 cats. In addition, there are three (3) smaller indoor-only adoption rooms that are utilized as necessary. The building also houses designated quarantine/isolation holding and exam room areas. These designated rooms are utilized for sick cats and cats awaiting veterinary approval before being available for adoption.

You Can Help!

Simply Cats Adoption Center is a not-for-profit organization that relies entirely on donations for funding. They do not receive any government funds. They are kept afloat largely by donations and fundraising income, followed by intake and adoption income. Their main focus is to take in and adopt out as many adoptable cats as they can. Last year, they took in 629 cats and adopted 627. Their adoption goal for 2016 is 700, and they are on track to meet it.

You can help them reach their goal through their GreaterGood.org "Gift That Gives More" campaign! Just $5 helps provide for a shelter cat preparing it for its forever home.  Every donation helps.

#MaximizeYourMojo for the holidays!

As their organization grows, Simply Cats looks to values which include promoting the importance of the human-animal bond, offering respect and compassion to all people, and provide unique services to their community. They also take in cat transfers from overcrowded shelters all over Idaho.
