I have worked with Stray Cat Alliance as a donor, volunteer, and a client served. I began working in adoption centers. I also served as a bottle feeder until I developed cat scratch fever and was advised not to work with kittens. Since that time, 3 years ago, I have worked transporting cats, fundraising, educating the public and city council staff, and fostering an adult cat. This organization has worked tirelessly to save kittens and cats from death row, developed and supports TNR and SNR projects, and provides top quality medical care for felines. They work closely with community organizations regarding No Kill Nation efforts. This organization is the BEST!!
An incredible organization that proves that humans do not only care about their own kind. Endless amounts of selfless time and effort provided by volunteers to help the abandoned and overlooked. Every city and town could benefit from such a great Nonprofit. Keep up the great work!!!!!
When I bought my first house, it came with a feral cat colony. One of the first things a neighbor did was call Animal Control on me. At a loss for what to do, I went online and pleaded for help with this situation. The only answer I got was from SCA. She talked me through it even though I wanted them to just come out and fix it. She explained to me that if I learned how to deal with the situation, I would not need to contact anyone in the future. I would have the tools to know what to do. I have since learned that now I can teach others what to do as well. I have found numerous resources through SCA. I volunteer with them when I can, I also donate when I can and I do TNR for neighbors and friends and sometimes even strangers. I have also become one of their resources: fostering cats in transition and trapping for events. I have had to deal with animal control on three different occasions now and we seem to have a mutual respect for one another. I know the tools I learned from SCA made all the difference here.
Although trap, neuter/spay, release is the forefront of SCA's work, there is nothing this organization won't do to try to get help to our feline companions - and canine and others too! Attached are a few of the many cats we've 'fostered' and then adopted of our own through them. I encourage anyone who wants to volunteer for an animal organization in the LA area to consider volunteering (or donating) to Stray Cat Alliance!
It is a good organization. They helps cats more than 10 years. I don't want to judge people who work there. No one is perfect. I appreciate their work. At least many cats find their warm home becuase of them. I think we should support them, but not complain.
I am an occasional volunteer with Stray Cat Alliance because I believe in their mission to educate and assist people in the lower income neighborhoods of Los Angeles about the stray cat population. They canvass neighborhoods to TNR cats, assist with veterinary care and donate food supplies to families that can't afford to buy the food to feed the cats that they love. Their tireless efforts have helped rescue many cats in need, and it makes me proud to donate my time and money to this organization so that they can continue to make a difference in the lives of stray cats in Los Angeles.
DONT BE FOOLED - the 5-star reviews are all written by employees. Anyone who has volunteered for them know they treat there volunteers badly - no even thank you for showing up on your saturday. I've volunteered for much better rescues and there are plenty. SCA says they help a lot of cats but it is all show to get money. Plus they say they pay for spays and neuters but when you get to the clinic be prepared to be charged. AN d it is a real arm pit. It is filthy! Go to fix nation or something better run and cleaner.
This organization is VITAL to the communities they serve. They provide guidance, and education on trap and release (TNR), spay/neuter, health and care for all type of cats. If it was not for the SCA volunteers guidance and support my little feral may have ended up dead. They do amazing work!
Great mission, but TERRIBLY disorganized. In fact, the most disorganized group I've ever volunteered for. They even lost my items I allowed them to borrow. Sadly, I won't be volunteering for them again.
