Care About The Strays dba Cats for Adoption is an all volunteer, non-profit (501c3) organization working in Rockland County, New York and surrounding areas. We are dedicated to the care and control of feral and abandoned house cats who live primarily outdoors. If these cats were not managed, they would reproduce at an alarming rate. We do not believe in using euthanasia unless extreme circumstances arise and it comes to the health and welfare of one of our cats. We feed hundreds of cats on a monthly basis and dedicate time to saving those cats who have been injured, pregnant, or nursing kittens.
Care About The Strays is dedicated to helping the many abandoned cats and their offspring. Left alone they will reproduce at an alarming rate. After we rescue a cat/kitten each is given a complete examination by a veterinarian, which includes spaying/neutering, vaccinations, and blood testing. Un-adoptable cats are returned to their respective areas where they are provided with shelter, fed daily, and are no longer able to reproduce. Friendly, healthy cats are held in foster care in our volunteers' homes until they are adopted.
