Stray H.E.L.P.

Healthcare and Education to Limit Population

Here to help you help the community cats you care about.

Through our Trap-Neuter-Return/Place (TNR/P), Adoption, Cat and Kitten Fostering, and Humane Education programs, we are able to improve the lives of both the cats and people of the Dutchess County area of the Hudson Valley, New York.

*Attention Town of Fishkill residents; spay/neuter vouchers can be purchased for $37.50 at Fishkill Town Hall (807 Route 52 in Fishkill), while supplies last. More details HERE.

Stray H.E.L.P. volunteers improve the lives of hundreds of Dutchess County community cats each year. We often encounter friendly cats that are ill-equipped to survive outdoor living, or, those that are ready to start a new life with a loving family. Please consider adopting your next cat or kitten rescued locally by Stray H.E.L.P.
