There are many ways to help. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please fill out this online form. We will contact you shortly after your submission with the next steps. Thank you for your help!
TNR: We are in great need of help with the trap, neuter and return process. This includes: trapping, transporting, after-care, and releasing the cats to their colonies the following day. If you have a vehicle and are able to assist with any of these tasks, please fill out the volunteer form above.
Feeding Cat Colonies: If you would like to make a difference in the lives of a stray or free-roaming cat by providing them with regular nourishment, please consider volunteering to help feed the kitties. As we feed, we also keep an eye out for new unaltered, sick, and injured cats. Currently we have 34 colonies with over 200 cats. Most colonies only require 2-3 visits a week since we use feeders that hold food for about two to three days. If you are only able to volunteer one day a week, we could still use your help.
Our colonies are located near the following cross-streets:Fairview/AZ AveFrye Rd/AZ AveChandler Fashion MallChandler Blvd/101Dobson/SouthernRay/McClintockWarner/DobsonWarner/Alma SchoolFederal/W.

Outreach: We need help with community outreach, organizing informational meetings with businesses, distribution of pamphlets and flyers, fundraising, and the translation and distribution of educational materials in Spanish.
Grant Writer: In order to continue helping the needy population of stray cats, we would like to pursue a grant. We are in need of experienced grant writers. Responsibilities include: researching and recommending appropriate grants, gathering information about our organization, and completing the grant application–including writing about the work Save a Stray Foundation is doing to curb the overpopulation of stray and feral cats on the streets of Maricopa County, Arizona.
Donations: We are in desperate need of monetary donations to buy cat food, pay for spaying/neutering, and pay for the cats’ medical bills when they get sick. A significant amount of dry and wet food is used on a daily basis when feeding colonies. Physical donation of cat food is also much appreciated.
