Happy Strays Rescue

CELEBRATING 10 YEARS AND
1,500 HAPPY STRAYS IN LOVING HOMES!

Happy Strays is a nonprofit cat rescue organization that cares for stray, abandoned, and orphaned cats and kittens.   All cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and tested prior to our search for permanent and loving homes.
Adoption events are held at the PETCOs in La Canada and Santa Clarita, California. 


All donations made to Happy Strays are tax-deductible and we appreciate your commitment and philanthropy. 
Our rescue operates solely on gifts made by individual supporters within the local communities we serve.

FOSTER KITTIES MATTERS
Happy Strays needs assistance to front the medical expenses of spaying and neutering our cats and kittens in foster care prior to adoption.  Whether you decide to send monthly support or simply choose to give a one time gift, thank you! All donations go directly to helping our rescued cats.  Gifts are tax deductible and deeply appreciated.   We need your partnership more than ever as medical bills have been significant this year.

OUR MISSION:
Happy Strays Rescue was formed to make a difference to the cats and kittens who need us most-- the homeless and tossed aside cats in our neighborhoods. All donations received go directly towards the cats and kittens in our care waiting for adoption, with a special emphasis on spay/neuter and medical expenses.  We dream of the day when there will be no more homeless pets in the Los Angeles area.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SPAY/NEUTER 
Reducing pet overpopulation is an important goal for Happy Strays Rescue.  Too many pets and not enough homes results in the euthanasia of adoptable pets.  The Humane Society of the United States estimates that 4-5 million pets are euthanized in our nation's shelters every year mainly due to overcrowding. Approximately 70% of these euthanized animals are cats. This tragedy could be eliminated if all pets were sterilized.
