I can't say enough wonderful thinks about SCA.I adopted a little kitten from them that was posted on Facebook Paloma. She had been pulled from South L.A. shelter, very sick with eye infections in both eyes. She ended up have to have one eye removed. Stephanie who is just the sweetest from SCA took her to all of her appointments and cared for her 24/7 until she was cleared for her new home with me and my other furbabies.
I live in Simi Valley 40 miles from SCA office, I was invited down to meet Paloma by Avarie and Stephanie, I was so amazed of the love and wonderful care all the kittens and cats have by the staff. Everyone with SCA is so dedicated to recusing and TNR in the area.
I could go on and on of how wonderful everyone is at SCA.
I even refer a women that I meet at the local feed store who was looking to adopt a kitten, I gave her SCA website and phone #'s, the following week she went down and adopted a new kitty.

As a client served I am satisfied with my new family member, Mr. Lion. My coworker first introduced me with this organization and I am so happy with the results and support they gave me. SCA was kind enough to supply us with food, litter and litter boxes. Being a first time cat owner, I had little to no experience on how to care for him. SCA informed me on how to properly treat him and care. I could not be any happier with my new cat and with the opportunity I got to connect with them. Definitely spreading their mission to others.

They lie. They kill cats. They trap cats and if they found a pregnant cat they happily say right in time and they spay the cat and all the unborn kittens will be killed. No matter if they would be born in a few mins... Also I witnessed when they trapped a cat they figured that the cat has an owner but instead of putting the cat back they kept the cat because it was cute. Also they brought in nursing cat moms without their few days old kittens when the kittens were not found. They just crazily spayed them instead replacing them to find the kittens. Seriuosly what difference would one day do??? If I`m not there and begging for 2 days to put back the cat moms the kittens would be dead. And of course they let her go back right after one of the mom`s surgery when she shouldn`t go back yet. They have trapping events when they collect like 100 cats and they all will be kept in a tiny trapper for days!! All were crying some of them had their nose bleeding from trying to get out. They don`t even take a look at them to see if they are sick and maybe they shouldn`t get the surgery. I`ve heard one of the volunteers saying I hope this time none of them will come out dead from surgery like last time....Maybe they could do it by 10s and giving them a better look and a better place to stay and not doing all of them on the same day. Also I went there for a craigslist ad that advertised a job for paid trapper. They said I have to show how I would do it. They made me work for 2 days (the 3rd one I refused) then they said I worked well and I will get hired though they wanted a Spanish speaker ( i didn`t know that cats speak Spanish and the ad didn`t say anything about Spanish speaking) After the only time when I`ve heard of them when i got an email saying that I should go again and volunteer with more work. Well they didn`t have another applicant, I figured that`s how they wanted more people to help them for free. I do not have a problem with volunteering but I will not do it for liars and for crazy people who kill kittens. (If I would have been hired I would never take a pregnant cat into their crazy place for sure!!!)

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!!

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.
