Stray Cat Alliance Saving Cats
When Christi Metropole encountered a stray and needy kitten in 1999, she was appalled to learn that little to no resources existed to help her. As a result, she founded Stray Cat Alliance and soon, feral and free-roaming cats had found a formidable ally. Under Christi’s unwavering leadership, hundreds of volunteers and scores of donors have since united. Under her astute direction, Stray Cat Alliance’s dedicated network helps ensure a safer, healthier quality of life for feral or community cats. Homeless cats are often misunderstood and targeted.
Christi has become the influential and candid voice for homeless cats. This has put her in high demand as a speaker. Her experience as a teacher and as a realtor gave her skills crucial to the development of Stray Cat Alliance.
Stray Cat Alliance- The Beginning
In 1997, Stray Cat Alliance did not exist, but an immense void did exist for caring citizens who wanted to help community cats. It was the year that founder and President Christi Metropole rescued her still-beloved cat Chloe from the mean streets. The life of thousands of Los Angeles area felines would never be the same.
The formerly-named Feral Cat Alliance evolved into its present iteration of Stray Cat Alliance. It began a revolution that would change the stray cat paradigm in this nation forever. Where no resources formerly existed to help cats, now a solid and respected organization flourishes.
Unquestionably, it is the experience of Stray Cat Alliance leadership, staff and volunteer base that has made such a difference.
