Kitten Academy

The most current project that we launched is our Kitten Academy! This is an extensive Two day training program where we cover Vet Tech level neonate kitten care such as emergency birthing procedures for pregnant mama cats, first aid, CPR & choking, as well as disease prevention, recognition and mitigation. Students in the course have hands on training as well as practicums for certain skills such as CPR. This training is Free to everyone with the idea that the more we train, the more lives we can assist in saving.

Save the Kitties Campaign

Save the Kitties is the main campaign for SOXrescue. This is the heart of our mission statement and everything we believe in. Our mission is to save as many abandoned cats & kittens from being put down in shelters. Every project and program is centered around "Save the Kitties."

McKeel Campground / Cat Refuge

The next project the community has helped us launch is the McKeel Campground/Cat Refuge - yeah, it’s a campground where You can camp with cats! This location is the first of a few that are in the planning and development stages. Its designed to house stray/feral felines that are homeless and have gone through a local Trap Neuter Release program. This is our solution to population control and lowering euthanasia.

McKeel Campground is located in Springville, CA and opens to the public this Summer 2017 so be sure to get your camping gear ready and make some smores with some refuge kitties.

ALLY Veterinary Transport

One of the projects that’s been in development and is currently in beta testing is the ALLY Veterinary Transport / Animal Disaster Response. We provide transport for families that can’t make it to the vet hospital or who’s pets (both cats & dogs) are in need of emergency care and transport. The program will also lead a team of trained disaster responders who also respond to animal cruelty, hoarding, and emergency cases. ALLY is staffed with on call Vet Techs that respond to calls & appointments. We believe that with ALLY, we can hopefully prevent the loss of life by providing support with a quicker response rate and individuals trained to care for our loved pets. ALLY has currently managing all of our long distance transports throughout California.
