Silicon Valley Pet Project and The Dancing Cat – Our 2018 Charity

Silicon Valley Pet Project (SVPP)
is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to saving local at-risk shelter cats and dogs through rescue, community involvement, and education. SVPP partners with local animal shelters and operates The Dancing Cat, a “cat cafe” in San Jose that showcases adoptable adult cats in a cage-free environment.

Silicon Valley Pet Project

SVPP rescues, rehabilitates, and re-homes both cats and dogs of all breeds that are at risk of euthanasia, including senior and special-needs pets and animals that require medical or behavioral care. Working together, SVPP and San Jose Animal Care Center are united in the desire to assist the shelter in achieving no-kill status.
Rescued pets are fostered and nurtured in volunteers’ homes in the Bay Area. SVPP’s growing network of compassionate and skilled volunteers provide individualized support and advice to these foster families every step of the way. In 2016 alone, SVPP helped find homes for nearly 60 dogs and 200 cats!

The Dancing Cat

The Dancing Cat is a lounge and adoption center for adult cats located at 702 E Julian Street in downtown San Jose that provides previously homeless adult cats a casual and relaxed environment to wander and play. For a small donation, guests are invited to meet and mingle with cats that roam free in a comfortable and charming living room-like lounge.

Whether you’re looking to adopt or just want to spend a quiet afternoon in the company of felines, The Dancing Cat is the *purrfect* place to meet friends, read, study, or simply decompress. Cat toys, catnip and WiFi are on the house! The Dancing Cat is also available for birthday parties, events, or gatherings.

SVPP’s lifesaving work is fully funded through private and public donations, grants and partnerships with other local organizations. With your generous support they can continue to make a significant impact for homeless pets in Silicon Valley.
