Happy Strays Rescue

CELEBRATING OVER 1,000 HAPPY STRAYS IN LOVING HOMES!

Happy Strays is a not for profit cat rescue organization that cares for stray, abandoned, and orphaned cats and kittens.   All of our cats are attended to medically including spaying/neutering, vaccinations, and testing.  We then begin the  search for permanent and loving homes at our adoption events held at the
PETCOs in La Canada and Santa Clarita, California. 

All donations made to Happy Strays are tax-deductible, and we appreciate your generosity as
our rescue survives on the gifts made by individuals in our community.

EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS | EACH FOSTER KITTY 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.

ABOUT ACCEPTING CATS OR KITTENS:
Please do not bring cats or kittens to PETCO without  making prior arrangements with a rescue volunteer. We are not a shelter or nor do we operate a facility. All of our rescues are fostered in the individual homes of our rescue volunteers.  Please also visit this website for a list of other possible resources. New fosters are always welcome, particularly during the many months of "kitten season".  Please inquire with a volunteer for details.

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.

LOCAL SPAY/NEUTER RESOURCES
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.
