Welcome to StrayAnimalsMatter

Welcome to S.A.M- Stray Animals Matter. org, we are a state licensed program that is dedicated in helping to eliminate feral cat communities in the city, thru TNR (Trap Neuter Return) Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the most effective and humane method to treat feral cats and manage their colonies. Cats are trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be sterilized and given any necessary medical attention.

During the TNR process friendly cats and kittens are moved to an adoption program. All cats are scanned for a micro-chipped and if a micro-pchip is found they are returned to their guardian. It is our goal to provide enough foster homes for the cats and kittens that can be rehabilitated so they have a home until they can be placed into their furever adopted homes.

We are looking to build teams in the following areas, Marionville, Billings, Crane, Aurora, Monett, and Mount Vernon if you live in theses areas and want to help your community please contact us. If you live further away and want to help your local commiuntiy we can help you set up a program for your area.

We are a non-profit organization that runs strictly on donations and volunteers, and can not do it with out the community help. If you are an animal lover and want to be a volunteer to help please fill out an application. We would love to have you join our team. If you don't have the time to volunteer why not sponsor a cat or two. We are also looking for monthly sponsors can you do that? If you are a business or organization why not join our Meow LOVE program, with this your business will be promoted on our Website as a sponsorship.

Unfortunately at this time we are not set up for people to turn in their animals that they can not keep. If you have an animal that you cannot keep we may be able to help you by giving you information about a rescue, or someone that may be able to help you but we can not.
