“The Scratching post is a non-profit, no kill shelter for stray and abandoned cats. Located in Silverton, Ohio (a Cincinnati suburb), the shelter has been in operation since May of 1990. We are able to find homes for about 400 cats per year. We can house about 50 at a time and are usually at full capacity. A cat can only be accepted if we have the space, which since we are a no-kill shelter, means only if we've had an adoption. There are thousands each year we have to turn away. The only way to reduce this number is by spaying & neutering every cat possible until there are homes for them all. Every animal admitted to the shelter is seen by a veterinarian and tested for feline leukemia and FIV. Once a cat has been vaccinated, spayed/neutered and has passed a health screening they enter the general population and have the run of most of the 1st floor of the shelter. Cats that are too young to be spayed/neutered are confined to the kitten room. Adoption hours are Saturday 12:00 - 4:00 and Thursday 12:00-6:30. Weekdays by appointment only please call 984-6369 and leave a message. Please note that it is the policy of The Scratching Post not to handle requests to bring in animals or adopt out animals via email. Any request related to placing an animal must be made in person or via phone at 984-6369. Most calls go to voice mail, but we promise to return all calls when chores are done for the day. We place the care of the cats we have before answering phones. Please be understanding and leave a message.”
