Save our Strays is a 501(c)(3) no-kill animal rescue organization incorporated in 1999. Although SOS helps any animal that comes their way, their expertise is in homeless cat rescue. There are no paid staff and all proceeds go directly to medical bills and housing of the resident animals that, primarily, are elderly or have medical conditions that make them less adoptable and likely to live out their lives under the care of SOS. Although it fluctuates, SOS feeds approximately 300 cats every day of the year, rain or shine. They have an active TNR (trap, neuter, return) program designed after Alley Cat Allies in New York, whereby certain volunteers trap feral cats, neuter or spay them to stop reproduction, then return them to their location, unless they are threatened by animals or uneducated humans in the area. They then commit to feeding them every day and watching for any medical problems should they occur. S.O.S. adopts out approximately 250-350 cats a year.
