Ways to Help
This is a free and easy way you can donate to Happy Strays.   The Ralphs club dollars really do assist our organization with spay/neuter and other expenses!

Simply register your Rewards Card and Ralphs donates up to 4% of your shopping bill!  Sign up on Ralph's secure site and edit your "Community Contribution Program Information" to designate Happy Strays Rescue.

In addition, Ralphs shoppers can take a print out of the barcode below and ask the cashier link our account to your rewards card.  This enrollment will be effective through August 31, 2016 and re-enrollment is encouraged on an annual basis after this date.  The barcode does not change for annual re-enrollment.

Happy Strays is forever appreciative to the following who support our rescue with their time, gifts, and hearts:  

We gratefully acknowledge the Healey Foundation for their generous partnership that assists us with medical expenses every year.

It is with great appreciation that we acknowledge the PETCO Foundation for spay/neuter financial assistance, the gift of product donation, and for hosting our weekly adoption events.

The Boeing Company ECF grant continues to keep our foster cats and kittens happy and healthy with their annual contribution. Thank you!

Thank you to the On Shore Foundation for supporting our mission.

We are truly grateful for the 2014 contribution from the Winneck Family Foundation which will assist the rescue with spay and neuter expenses.

Special thanks to the Caltech CAT team for their collaboration in rescuing homeless kitties on campus.

We extend big hugs to our friends at Big Tujunga Vet Hospital, Animal Medical Hospital in Pasadena, Altadena Animal Hospital, and The Cat Doctor in Valencia.

Thank you to our friends at Heaven on Earth, particularly Pamela Geisel.

We give a "shout out" to Sharon, Brooklyn, Melissa, and Krystal for providing wonderful carrier pads so that each adopted kitty receives a new blanket to take home!

Many thanks to Precious Cat for generously supplying our rescue with cat litter and for kindly providing sample bags for all of our adoptive families.

Thanks to Lexie for coordinating our Adoption Center in La Canada.  Many of our kitties have found their forever homes because of her extraordinary commitment to pet rescue.

We also recognize Lexie, Kellie, Lynn and Michele for their dedication to bottle-feeding and raising our very youngest kittens.  

Also, thank you to Megann, Chris, James, Melissa, Krystal and James for keeping our adoption events in Santa Clarita going strong! 

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. 

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss someone very special to them; who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. YOU have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. -Author Unknown

A letter from one of our recipients:

Dear Happy Strays,
Thank you so much for your help, especially lately. The donation food helps a lot!  I got some from the rescue two times in the past week and shared it with other disabled cat owners.  :)  My cats like it and so did theirs!  Friends also had their cats fixed by Happy Strays since they couldn't afford it.  My own cats have gotten a lot of help over the past few years from Happy Strays.  Please keep donating to Happy Strays.  It's a real organization and the money actually goes to the cats!
