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.

Hello, I just wanted to take a minute to tell our story with The Stray Cat Alliance. This non profit is amazing they went above and beyond the call of duty with our situation from start to finish. We adopted a cat into our home and had a few bumps along the way(angry first cat), but Stray Cat Alliance stepped up to help us through. I have never seen such selfless dedication to help not only our household but all the animals they care for. Kudo's to the whole team from the adoption center to the administrators to the vets that help!! If your looking for a Cat to adopt look no further than this group they truly stand by you and your pets!! Thanks again from our very happy home.

The staff and volunteers of SCA help cats when no one else will. I first encountered SCA when I was trying to trap a feral cat who needed to be fixed. SCA lent me a trap and showed me what to do. Since then, I have seen SCA help hundreds of cats and teach others how to help cats. This group is outstanding.

I'm trying to think of the right words to say about SCA. I come short with any word other than, amazing. I believe they are gods angels to stray cats. I was never a cat person until my five found me. He was knocking on deaths door. I was out of hope on trying to find anyone to help me. I called/ emailed every single rescue only to get no answer or response. I had tried one last rescue, SCA! I was given Annas number, she had asked to send a picture of my five. He had a huge abscess on his back, extremely skinny and didn't have much longer to live. I sent the picture immediately, within minutes she had called me back saying she was calling carol who happened to live right around the corner. Little did I know, not only did they save five that same day, I have also made a great friend. We are so thankful to have carol and SCA for being fives guardian angel. Anna & Carol, from the bottom of our hearts, thanks for everything you guys did for him. Five also appreciates you babysitting him when we go out of town!! Carol, you're amazing!

I've always been impressed with SCA. And over the years, the group has become even more efficient, influential, inspiring and broad-visioned. Through trap-neuter-return programs, they have greatly improved the quality of life for thousands of innocent animals. They've also helped prevent the birth of thousands more unwanted kittens. I take part in whatever volunteerism for nonprofits that time permits, and I have to say, this is by far one of the best-run organizations I've encountered. SCA has also helped me find fantastic homes for a number of kitties. By offering support and education, they empower communities to manage stray populations. They've also successfully advocated for better laws. And SCA has been there to back-up community care-givers in need, such as a woman who was assaulted. By raising awareness about that case, they not only made the woman feel she has allies in her loving efforts, but they helped our city understand the kind of dedication that exists in the rescue community.

AMAZING organization that goes way beyond any others I have ever seen, their love and commitment for cats goes above and beyond. I have adopted a cat from them, even given her horrible past she came to me, clean and healthy, they spayed her she was flea free and the she was the sweetest thing I could ever ask for. I would adopt again without a doubt. They were all professional and did amazing jobs. I have watched and followed them ever since and they go so out of their way for these kitties even the ones who need extensive vet care they never seem to give up especially on the really sick ones. I love them and will continue to support them. I even referred other people to them as well who were looking to adopt.

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!!!!!!

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 heard kittens under the house and didn't know what to do. I contacted SCA and Carole walked me through trapping, spaying and returning them to my yard. We must have shared 20 emails by time I felt comforable enough to get the job done. They were so patient and supportive. I used one of their free spay clinics. It was great to come into contact with an organization that had my same goals. SCA is truly beneficial to the community.
