The SICSA Pet Adoption Center will open a second location in the North Dayton area, just in time for the second phase of the Rachael Ray ASPCA 100K Challenge. SICSA North, as the new site will be called, will be temporarily housed in the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center located at 6790 Webster Street in Dayton. Easily accessed from I-75 using the new Benchwood/Wyse Exit 59, SICSA officials hope the second location will help increase the number of animal lives saved through adoption.
SICSA North will be open for business starting Wednesday, August 1st, with plans to remain co-housed with the Animal Resource Center through October 31, 2012. SICSA finished third in the nation through online voting in the first phase of the Rachael Ray ASPCA 100K Challenge back in April. They now hope this second location will help them save more lives, and in the process, win award money in the second phase of the Challenge.
SICSA's Kettering location at 2600 Wilmington Pike, now dubbed SICSA South, will remain open seven days a week while the SICSA North location will be closed for adoption on Sunday.
There will be a Grand Opening of SICSA North on Saturday, August 4, and an Adoption Fest at SICSA South on Sunday, August 5. Both will be from noon until 4pm and will have a carnival-theme with activities and prizes, including Dream Dollars which can be used towards the adoption of any cat or dog at either SICSA North or South.
