While Stray Cat Alliance does good things concerning feral cats. Do we really know all they do? I have been looking very close at this organization for the last couple months. The reason being when a kitty adopted me, I put a post on Facebook to see if she belonged to someone. Patty from FIX LONG BEACH reached out and said she could help with having her fixed. But what I didn't realize was she was already pregnant and had the kittens at the home behind mine. I informed Patty and asked her to send me a voucher to have her spayed after she was done nursing. When I sent her my address she replied "can we meet? I can get those kittens for you." She told me she has Animal Control's number in her back pocket and can ask for an animal control officer to "step in." Of course I said yes, after all these kittens were already 4 weeks old and I know from my own experience and also according to Alley Cat Allies kittens must be handled by humans very early for the benefit of the kittens. I met with Patty and Anna who represented herself as being from SCA, ( I believe she also is an employee of Long Beach Animal Care Services - the city animal pound, one of many organizations intertwined with SCA.) They went to the home behind me but they said there was no answer and wanted my address to return my cat carrier. Wilma was there Anna made a comment about how she follows me all over the place, I love this little kitty and she loves me. She also said she was Abyssinian, I asked how she could tell and she said by the markings, I thought she looked like a an adorable petite little tabby. They left my carrier but did not give me a voucher to have her spayed. I believe this was because they knew I wasn't going to have a chance to have her spayed. Four weeks later the very day the kittens turned 8 weeks old was the last time I saw Wilma. Two days later I send a message to Patty saying I just wanted to let her know Wilma has disappeared, she sent a message back and said Anna was working on having her and the kittens fixed and re -homed. I put a post on Facebook saying they facilitated in her disappearance. Anna called and ordered me to cease and dissect and threatened to call the police. Her defense was a strong offence, in my opinion not a reaction by someone who has done nothing wrong. I can't help but wonder how many others have been bullied into silence by Stray Cat Alliance. Every week I go to all the local cat adoptions hoping to find Wilma, sadly that hasn't happened. I did see three kittens that were born behind a garage the same time Wilma's kittens were born and the foster told me they think they are part Abyssinian. I asked what happened to the mother, she couldn't look me in the eye when she told me she was feral and fixed and returned. When I see all these cats for adoption I can't help but wonder how many of the adult cats were taken from people because someone with Stray Cat Alliance did not approve of their home. If they deemed me unfit to keep her because she had kittens, that would be wrong because she came to me pregnant, I hadn't had her very long and didn't know if she belonged to someone else. Not to mention the FACT the ONLY REASON I WAS IN CONTACT WITH THEM WAS PATTI CONTACTED ME AND OFFERED A VOUCHER, WHICH SHE NEVER GAVE ME. What would you think? I have also found Carson Cats (another organization closely intertwined with SCA) has cats for sale at a cheaper price they called "Barn yard cats" these cats don't get along with people. To me this sounds like they have taken feral cats and caged them, can you imagine the terror these cats are in every second of their life because SCA has played cat God and thought they could reform them. I also know of cats that have been caged for years at their "cattery." I don't know how you can put a creature in a cage with no hope of getting out a 'rescue'. I also don't think three hours twice a week is a very serous attempt to find the more then 169 cats in their care homes. They should spend less time looking for cats to take outside of animal pounds and more time looking for homes for the cat already in their care.

Was Wilma one of the 49 cats that took a long trip to Colorado on a hot August 5th?


These are facts and opinions stated by a citizen of the United States of America and as long as I don't have Wilma I will never stop the telling of her plight.

While most people were nice, I found Tammy to be distant and unfriendly. I felt that she thinks she's doing me a favor.
Personality aside, is the quality of pets being offered. THIS WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE!!!! The issue with the cleanliness of the cats and kittens. As a part of their role,
all their cats must be without fleas and worm. This goes with EVERY cat adoption organization.
We are extremely clean people. We have one cat who has not had one flea in his life. We just adopted a cat for his companionship. Thinking that this organization would do what they are supposed to do, we adopted a cat. In 2 days we started noticing fleas on him!!!!! Not just a couple, but INFESTED with hundreds of them. Now my house and my other cat has fleas. EVEN I GOT IT!!! I just killed one on my scalp.

I hate people that start with good intentions, and then let go of their responsibilities. You want to do a good job (which of course you make money off of it), then DO IT RIGHT. You are NOT allowed to harm people this way. I will report this organization to every local and federal agency!!!!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

SHUT IT DOWN!!

Everyone, from the general clerk to the veterinarians at hand, made my sister and I feel great relief and gratitude to choosing Stray Cat Alliance to assist in spaying our cats. They gave us several humane strategies in trapping them especially as one of them had severe cuts that Stray Cat Alliance looked at afterwards. All of this was free of charge, as well, which helped a great deal. The procedures were done in no time so I was able to pick up the cats the next day first thing in the morning. They all spoke with great knowledge and passion for these cats, and I have recommended them to others who need free spay/neuter for stray cats.

I started as a donor to SCA, and the more I saw them in action, the more I wanted to be involved. They are truly volunteer-powered. Everyone works incredibly hard to help homeless cats. I know that when I donate, every penny goes immediately to cats in need. It is the most gratifying and satisfying feeling to know that my money is helping cats NOW. Thank you, SCA!

I have volunteered at a no kill shelter and I saw the effects of overpopulation of cats and dogs. I support SCA because they help educate people about why spay and neutering your pet is important. Their work is invaluable, the shelters are still overcrowded and with organizations like SCA, there is an effort being made out there to help with this issue.

As a Veterinary Technician and past adoptions manager for Cats In Need, I am painfully aware of the hundreds of stray cats and kittens that are euthanized on a daily basis in L.A County because there are not enough homes to care for them. Stray Cat Alliance addresses this problem at its roots, by promoting trap and release programs that spay/neuter strays, thus decreasing the number of stray cats and kittens that might end up being euthanized. Stray Cat Alliance saves lives!

They helped me out when I had questions on how to help a feral cat in my neighborhood. I didn't know what to do for the cat, and they helped me figure out if she was fixed or not (ear tipping). They took the time to provide me with great advice.

This group is amazing. They address the problem at the root by spaying and neutering cats that are in the streets so that they don't reproduce. They are active in legislation in respect to animal welfare. They are awesome.
