Bobbi and the Strays was made aware of 4 cats that were thrown outside after their owner passed away. Their dad passed away months ago, and despite promising him that they would take care of his beloved cats, his family did the opposite. Once they sold his house, they moved on, leaving his innocent cats behind to fend for themselves.
Thankfully a concerned neighbor noticed the cats outside under the dumpster. She fed them and they ate ravenously. These beautiful cats who were always used to being cared for and loved were struggling to survive! The new homeowners were not interested in helping the cats, so the kind neighbor reached out to Road to Home Rescue. They immediately spread the word to find help. This is when we saw their plea and stepped in.
Bobbi and the Strays, Road to Home, and Pets4Luv volunteers worked as a team to trap the cats. The first two were easily trapped and immediately brought to safety. The last two cats presented more difficulty. They were terrified, one was injured (possibly from the broken glass that blanketed the ground), and there were heavy rain storms slowing the process. Thankfully a drop trap allowed us to catch the last two cats.
Now Freckles and her 3 friends are safe with us. Freckles is a sweet cat, but is still very scared. Freckles has been through a lot and is looking for a family that will help her to trust again. Please come meet her at 2 Rider Place Freeport.
All of our cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and tested for FIV/Felv.
Bobbi and the Strays is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt animal welfare organization, and a no-kill agency.
We rescue stray dogs and cats from harmful situations ranging from abuse and neglect to imminent euthanasia. All animals are examined and treated by a veterinarian and updated with vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and will undergo healthcare or rehabilitation as necessary. We then find permanent, loving homes for these animals who may never have known kindness. We also provide educational programs to schools and the community, educating children and adults on responsible pet ownership. We also have Spay-Neuter/Release programs, organizing monthly spay/neuter services around the community with the ASPCA van.
We have dedicated volunteers who help rescue, foster, and care for the animals, as well as helping out at adoption days.
Donations are always needed to continue our work, and we rely on the support of those who share our vision of a world where animals are treated humanely, given loving homes, and where organizations such as ours are a thing of the past. We believe in our dream.

Our Adoption Process...
We require all potential adopters to complete an adoption form. We will make arrangements to meet with you, inspect the home where the animal will live, and, once approved, you'll be able to take home your new family member. Fees will be discussed with potential adopters.
We also require that adopters keep us updated on the well being of their pets and, if for any reason they are no longer able to keep the animal, they MUST call us to return the animal to us. We will pick up if necessary.
