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.

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!
