“S.O.S. was begun in 1998 to help reduce the number of stray animals through non-lethal means (TNR and Spay/Neuter Programs). We also ask the public to help minimize overpopulation by spaying and neutering their own pets. We are organized members and volunteers and do not have a shelter. All of our animals are fostered by members or volunteers in their homes. ::The Vision of Save Our Strays is a world without abandoned, suffering, stray or feral animals. ::The Mission of Save Our Strays is to eliminate the overpopulation of stray and feral cats and dogs through spay and neuter efforts. Secondarily, to assist with finding loving homes for adoptable animals. ”
SOS - quite an impact in Cincinnati
Save Our Strays has made quite an impact on the lives of thousands of cats and kittens in the Cincinnati area when it was active. In facct, SOS was directly responsible for the increased numbers of cats at our house - because we fostered lots of kitties for the Save Our Strays organization. Anastasia, Black Magic Mambo, and SweetPea McGee were the ones that made us flunk fostering, as they eventually became permanent family members. Unfortunately, there have also been a few other kitties who died before they could grow up enough or get well enough to be adopted out - and they'll stay with me in my heart forever too.posted: December 27th, 2007
I wouldn't be alive if it weren't for Save Our Strays
My mom was a stray. The people at SOS took her in off the streets and helped her to have me (she had to have an emergency c-section!) When she didn't make it through the surgery, my foster mom nursed me with an eye dropper at first, then with a kitten bottle, until I was big enough to eat solid food. I was supposed to go up for adoption then, but my foster mom decided she couldn't part with me (yes, I'm THAT cool) and now I live with her forever and ever. Lots of foster cats and kittens come through our house, and my mom says that all the SOS members and volunteers have houses just like ours - full of cats and dogs who need some help getting healthy and finding forever homes. They even help our wild relatives who don't trust people and have to live outside by feeding them and getting them spayed/neutered so they don't have so many babies who will end up homeless too.
