Reviews for Stray Cat Alliance

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

DON'T go to this rescue! The person who runs it is an egomaniac who treats her volunteers disrespectfully. I know several who have left because of her. They are very disorganized. Also, they send cats to a complete dump in the hood that will LOSE your animal, and give it sub standard cares. If you show up for adoption event to help don't expect anybody to thank you. I just dont think these people are very nice and who knows if they really help the animals, it just seem they are online to make money.

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.

I love this organization! They really care about the stray cat population in Los Angeles and they are actually trying to do something about it instead of just talking! Through SCA, I have helped to TNR stray neighborhood cats that are cared for by loving people in South LA. I have canvassed South LA with other SCA volunteers spreading the word to neighbors that help is available to them for their companion cats and stray neighborhood cats. This organization has the most dedicated bunch of volunteers I have ever come across! I will continue to support them financially and by volunteering!

Stray Cat Alliance is one of the best organizations I've ever met and volunteered for. They genuinely care and do everything they can to make positive changes to the overwhelming cat population in Los Angeles. They help find homes for many cats but I love they focus on the root issue as well, so we can minimize the amount of cats euthanized. I love that they are a voice for people who genuinely need help and they also provide education for those who truly need it.

This is a great charity!!! They focus on spaying and neutering stray cats, offering free spays/neuters in disadvantaged neighborhoods, and fostering/adopting out cats, kittens, and the occasional dog. Highly recommended!

Stray Cat Alliance is an incredible organization that works tirelessly to help cats and the people who care for them. They provide much-needed assistance with spay/neuter, emergency medical, and even food for cats living on the streets and also for cats whose caretakers do not have the resources. Christi Metropole, the executive director, is a highly respected and dedicated leader who has transformed the way community cats are seen and valued in Los Angeles County. The rest of the staff and volunteers are also extremely competent and give so much to help cats live better lives. It is truly an honor to be associated with them.
