Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Stray Cat Alliance


Seeking enthusiastic, compassionate animal lovers, who want to make a difference! Volunteer with Stray Cat Alliance to TNR community cats in the South La area! We have three opportunities, including trapper, transporter, and trap depot manager.

Trap-Neuter-Return, or "TNR," is the most humane and effective method known for managing stray cat populations and reducing their numbers. The cats, who typically live together in a group called a colony, are trapped and brought to a veterinary clinic. They're then spayed or neutered and vaccinated. After they've recovered from their surgeries, the cats are returned back to their homes in the community, where a caretaker provides regular food and shelter.

TRAPPER: No experience required. needed we will train. Must have a reliable vehicle large enough to carry traps (they can not be put in the trunk or the bed of an uncovered truck). Must be able to trap early morning or mid to late evening. Must be able to keep cats overnight in an enclosed ventilated area in the traps and possibly release them within 24-48 hours from surgery. Must be willing to learn to feed and clean the trap while the cat is secured in the trap. Must be able to life up to 35 lbs. TRANSPORTER: No experience needed. Must have a reliable vehicle that can transport both traps and carriers (not in the trunk or uncovered truck bed). Must be able to lift up to 30 lbs. TRAP DEPOT: No experience needed. Must have a secure garage or shed or spare room to house up to 30 traps, trap forks, transfer traps, and supplies such as tip ties and carabiners.

The TD volunteer will be training those borrowing traps on the basics of humane TNR, securing appointments, and using the traps as well as proper releasing of cats after surgery. Must be willing to keep supplies in good working order and log all supplies in and out. Must be able to lift 10 lbs.

Mission Statement

Stray Cat Alliance educates and empowers communities to advocate for every cat’s right to be safe, healthy, and valued.


Every day, our team works to save the helpless lives of kittens and cats by providing: spay/neuter, trap-neuter-return (TNR), adoptions, wellness care, medical care, and community shelter support.

Our goals are to:

  • Eradicate cruelty toward cats through advocacy, rescue, and education.
  • Find loving forever homes for cats and kittens taken in through all of our programs.
  • Help shelters transform themselves from executioners to safe havens for cats by implementing SCA’s life-saving policies and procedures.
  • Educate the community about the plight of freeā€roaming cats and empower people to take action to stop population growth through spay and neuter.
  • Create and sustain a No-Kill Nation by mentoring other communities to become no kill through our grassroots programs.

Stray Cat Alliance envisions a time when all cats are valued and safe whether in homes or communities, and when shelters serve as temporary safe havens.
