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.

Greetings! I wanted to take the time to tell you my experience with the outstanding organization called Stray Cat Alliance that is located in Long Beach. I reside in a neighboring town where there is a colony of cats living that needed attention on all kinds of levels. When I reached out to this organization for guidance in trapping and fostering and medical situations, Anna Wong personally took the time to speak with me about any questions I had in regards to the welfare of these cats and taught me how to drop trap to address the problem at its core. I can not thank Anna and Stray Cat Alliance enough for everything they have done for me and the colony. Thank you for your time.

My experience with the SCA has been as a donor. I have donated directly to SCA and to their veterinarian; it is clear that they go far above and beyond for the animals in their care, and are compassionate, committed, energetic in their dedication to the cats of LA. Working with special needs animals as well as the never-ending challenge of TNR is an area of rescue that demands much. SCA is making a real difference.

My husband worked at the Albertson's in Covina. A few years ago he noticed a group of stray cats living in the parking lot and finding cover under the recycling center. He decided that they needed to be rescued and spayed, so for a couple of weeks he helped to feed the cats so they could get used to him. He asked me where he could find help and support in order for them to trapped, then spayed. I found Stray Cat Alliance on the internet and contacted a very nice lady whose name was Debbie who was in charge of the loaning out the cages. It took a few days, but my husband was able to rescue the mother and her 5 kittens. Fix Nation was the organization that did the spaying procedure.

When it was time to return the cats, the only one we released was the mother. We kept the kittens, adopted out 2, and kept 3.
Stay Cat Alliance was very helpful and supportive, especially Debbie who gave my husband tips about getting the cats into the cages.

Because of this, we became montly donors to Stray Cat Alliance as well as Fix Nation!

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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending their fundraisers, visiting their outreach booths, volunteering to care for rescued cats.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Everyone is kind, compassionate and working toward the single goal of saving cats.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Enthusiastic, informed and helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save every homeless cat in Los Angeles – and then some!

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the many programs and opportunities they present to the public to learn about TNR

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.
