Spay the Strays, Inc. is an all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit cat rescue organization. We have a small network of fosters who take care of our rescued cats and give them all they need until they are adopted into forever homes. We do not have a shelter or a clinic and cannot assist you with TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return). Please see the Resources and TNR tab on the left side of our website for information on those services. We are a foster adoption program who hopes to reduce the cat population in Osceola County, FL, by placing as many of the wonderful adoptable cats and kittens we rescue into loving, furrrever homes.
Our foster homes are full right now and we cannot take in any additional cats at this time; however, we can offer you education and resources to foster the cat(s) you find. Please consider fostering yourself. We will help you find the right resources to foster and then adopt out the cat(s) if that is your goal.
Spay the Strays, Inc. was started in 2006 by our director, Anita, with one cat named Callie. Today, we have 200+ cats in foster homes, at any given time, as well as trapping and neutering strays and taking care of colonies of community cats in our local neighborhoods. We are all volunteers and do this in our free time, out of the goodness of our hearts. Each year, we help curb over-population by TNR (trap-neuter-return) hundreds, sometimes thousands of cats. We constantly receive requests to rescue cats people have come across and try to help as many as we can. The only way we can continue to do so is with foster homes for these cats to go to. Please consider becoming a foster parent. We will teach you everything you need to know and give you the support you need.
We manage about 70 colonies of stray and feral cats in the Kissimmee/St. Cloud area on a daily basis. We feed these cats daily, get medical treatment for cats who appear to be sick or injured and monitor the colonies for any newcomers who are then spayed/neutered, as needed.
We are a foster run cat rescue and do not have a shelter or a clinic. All cats are homed with vetted fosters and receive all the necessary medical care as well as plenty of love, support, socialization and play time to help them prepare for furrrever homes. Foster are big-hearted individuals who give their time and energy to make sure these homeless kitties get the best chance for success while in their care. Without the tiring dedication of our foster families and volunteers, who take care of the cats at the habitats, there would be no Spay the Strays. Please consider opening your home to save a kitty and thank you to our generous and loving fosters and volunteers!
We showcase cats weekly at 3 pet store locations: Petco at the Loop (3246 N. John Young Parkway, Kissimmee, FL); Petco at Sunrise Plaza (3201 Vineland Road, Kissimmee, FL) and Petsmart in Kissimmee (2755 E. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway). We hold adoption events every Saturday and Sunday at the Petco at the Loop from 12-5 p.m. and periodic adoption events at our other 2 locations (Check our Facebook page for more information about these events. https://www.facebook.com/Spay-the-Strays-112127678823567/)
You can help us by adopting, fostering, volunteering or donating!
