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.

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.

Wonderful group who really help the feral and strays in the community.With some great people, went out in south Los Angeles to educate and help reduce the feral and stray cat population by offering free spay and neuter.Also, with the help of a great foster, got a stray cat my neighbor and I rescued, a fur ever home.Averie is wonderful and committed to making a difference.
