Stray Cat Alliance is an amazing group of dedicated, knowledgeable, and supportive volunteers who selflessly assist our communities in finding life saving solutions for the thousands of homeless, stray, feral and abandoned cats and kittens roaming our neighborhoods. Christi Metropole is passionate and determined in her cause to ensure these beautiful sentient beings are treated humanely and with much needed love! I have the utmost respect and gratitude for all that you do - I know it's not always an easy endeavor - and can be fraught with obstacles. Kudos to you for your unwavering dedication! We share the earth with many magnificent creatures - felines being just one species. We need more organizations and people like you to teach the world about how to be more compassionate and tolerant of other living beings.

Stray Cat Alliance has many wonderful people who put their heart and sole into helping the cats in need. They are always willing to go the extra mile and to stand up for the cats rights. They are a, boots on the ground organization, who will do what it takes to get the job done. They even implemented an innovative program to help save bottle babies. I am so impressed with them that I donate to them and I don't even live in California.

Christi and the Stray Cat Alliance team continue to impress me with their work! Christi is a true expert in the field of animal rescue; her many years of experience in all relevant areas (fostering, volunteering, fundraising, social media outreach, trapping, community education, etc) are what separate her team at SCA from other organizations. As a donor, I feel 110% sure that my dollars are being used as efficiently as they can be to save and improve the most lives possible.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
