My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Eddye is a fantastic, very affectionate cat. He's a big boy at 16 lbs, and tall. He desperately needs someone to love, and be loved by. A quiet home with a large, mothering dog is best suited as he can be quite pushy when he rubs against another animal, but needs that assurance from a steady, calm animal.

He enjoys the safety of an outdoor enclosure where he greets passersby and where he can be away from the cats in the house. He loves dogs, but gets overwhelmed by other cats. He still kneads the bread, so to speak, and I find him often times trying to snuggle with my dog. He can get anxious when around too many other cats or stimulus. With the exception of one cat... his love Truffle. Truffle has her own special needs as she never quite got used to humans. She's lived in foster for 4 years and is completely in love with Eddye. On the occation when Eddye has vet appointments she searches for him until his return. Their's is truly a partnership and they should not be separated. Truffle is house trained and is quite comfortable living inside with option to go out (in an enclosure).

He is extremely routine oriented; this helps keep him calm and comfortable. Eddye will be best suited with a home where he can get LOTS of individual attention. He is a bit anxious, and needs calm, loving companionship. He takes a long time to adjust to new things, so a stable, consistent home is especially important here. Eddye is neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots, he has been dewormed and deflead.

He has tested negative for FIV/FeL and heart worm. All of which is included for the adoption donation of $125. He was born on the Ides of March, 2012 in Beacon, NY and closes the loop as the last generation coming from his colony. His special needs consist of simply keeping a steady environment and schedule, and offering him your love and attention. His interesting face is so unique that he captures the attention of anyone looking at him. Have you ever seen such eyes? He is truly special. He is vetted, and waiting for his forever family to meet him and fall in love. If you'd like to meet Eddye, please complete our application and we will contact you for an appointment. We work in our homes, therefor require a completed application before we give you our address for a visit. 

Our required adoption donation is $150 per kitten or $125 per cat (older than 9 months). All our rescues are up to date on shots, microchipped, tested for FIV/FeL. They are dewormed, treated for parasites and free of fleas. Each is spayed or neutered and given a rabies vaccination. An application must be completed to be considered to adopt from Stray HELP. You can download it from here:

If your application is approved we conduct a home visit for final approval of adoption. To view more pictures of cats and kittens in our program visit our facebook page:

More about this rescue

Our mission is to rescue and care for stray and homeless animals while providing humane education to the community.
We work with members of the community to help cats in need. We conduct trap/neuter/return and place projects and train home and business owners on how to properly care for free roaming cats on their property and in their neighborhoods.
We focus in southern Dutchess County, but help people throughout Dutchess, Putnam and Orange counties by connecting them with local rescues that can work with them, loaning equipment, coordinating spay/neuter clinics and offering guidance.
