Give a homeless animal a break.

Save a life! Take a homeless pet into your home for a few days, weeks or months.

As a foster based organization, Save a Stray depends on people like you willing to give a kitty a temporary home, a few days, weeks or months, it all depends on you.

Save a Stray covers the cost of vet visits made through Save a Stray.

Cats can be fostered for any amount of time. Dogs/puppies need a home for exactly two weeks. Take care of the pet as you would your own. Save a Stray takes care of the vet bills, using donations. Fosters usually provide food and litter. Any supplies you buy for your foster are tax deductible.

We often hear, "I could never foster. It would be too hard to let them go." Is it harder than knowing a fine animal died because no one would foster? Sure, you do get attached and it hurts a little when you let them go, but that's what will make you a good foster. Once you see the adoptive family's excitment, you will know the true gift of fostering.

It's a great way to try out living with a pet in your home, if you are considering adopting. If you have children, fostering a pet can help teach them about caring for animals.

If you work full time, no problem. Most pet owners work. Any amount of time with you each day is better than being in a stressful shelter.

Worried about having enough space? Cats can be kept in a kennel, a bathroom or laundry room. In fact, a small space keeps them safe as they adjust to a foster home. Many of them are recovering from spay/neuter surgery and need a confined space while they heal.

Our homeless animals come from kill shelters, some are abandoned, some are strays.

Mission Statement

Save a Stray is a local, all volunteer nonprofit that helps homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens in Mobile, Alabama. Animals come from from kill shelters and the community. Save a Stray is totally dependent on your tax deductible donations to spay or neuter, test for FIV & Feline Leukemia, deworm, vaccinate for age, provide flea treatment, microchip and treat for parasites. Strays often have additional medical needs, too. Once they have received vet care, they are housed in private homes, homes of volunteers who foster them short term until adopted. Dogs are transported to a partner nonprofit in Dewitt, NY, where they are adopted. Cats are adopted locally.

Description

Save A Stray, a small group of volunteers, rescues cats and dogs, large and small. Some are strays, some are abandoned, some are taken from shelters where they are likely to be euthanized. Some beloved pets come to us when an elderly owner dies or becomes ill. Save A Stray spays or neuters the pets, provides the necessary vaccinations and medical care. Then it's time to find a volunteer to provide a foster home. The next step is to find a home for the pet. Pet Supermarket, Cottage Hill at Hillcrest, graciously houses some of our cats. You may visit, and get to know, these cats anytime the store is open. But, most of our pets are housed in foster homes, people like you and me who are willing to give a fine animal a temporary home while they wait for a forever home.

Save A Stray works with other organizations to transport puppies and dogs to a group near Syracuse, New York, who helps them get adopted. These dogs need loving families to foster them for the two weeks before their journey up north.

Save A Stray is grateful to the volunteers who graciously donate their time and resources to care for our adoptable pets. Please join us in fulfilling our mission.
