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!!!)

Stray Cat Alliance is an incredible organization that works tirelessly to help cats and the people who care for them. They provide much-needed assistance with spay/neuter, emergency medical, and even food for cats living on the streets and also for cats whose caretakers do not have the resources. Christi Metropole, the executive director, is a highly respected and dedicated leader who has transformed the way community cats are seen and valued in Los Angeles County. The rest of the staff and volunteers are also extremely competent and give so much to help cats live better lives. It is truly an honor to be associated with them.
