  • About Stray Aid & Rescue

    Stray Aid & Rescue was founded by Diane Fraser in May of 2003 to help
    the community by helping to control pet overpopulation and
    find homes for stray kittens and cats. Here is Diane’s story
    in her own words:

    Who I am and what we hope to accomplish…

    What a loaded question…

    In late 1999, I started volunteering at a no-kill shelter.
    I would clean kennels, cat rooms, help with adoptions, take
    dogs to the vet for spay/neuter surgeries, and it just snowballed
    from there!

    I took on my first foster dog. Phoenix, an 8 month old Red
    nose Pit Bull. She had Demodex Mange, and she had it bad.
    She came to the shelter right off the streets of Pompano
    at about 4 months old. I met her when she was about 6 months
    old and the shelter director told me to take her “home
    for the weekend” to show her what a real home is like.
    I also wanted to take her to the vet for her weekly dips,
    etc. Needless to say, I adopted her about 8 months later….
    still not better medically, but she was home. It was less
    than 6 months after I adopted Phoenix; that I took on my
    first abandoned litter of pups. Once those were adopted,
    I took on another litter, then another, then it turned into
    only one or two at a time. As of today, I have rescued and
    placed over 50 puppies/dogs and over 20 kittens into loving
    homes.

    After I successfully rescue/loved/adopted out all those
    abandoned pets, it was time for me to take a break….RIGHT???

    Not quite yet… That is when I got a call to help with
    a feral cat colony. There were about 25 cats in this colony
    and only 5 had been neutered. After about 30 days and about
    20 surgeries, and 6 rescued kittens…this colony was
    contained. The people who fed these cats continue to feed
    and care for this colony.

    I saw a need for someone to help people in our community,
    help these stray cats/kittens. That is when I founded Stray
    Aid & Rescue, Inc. in May of 2003.

    What does this group mean to me? It means a lot of things….

    1. Trapping/Sterilizing/Vaccinating/Re-releasing cats
      in feral colonies. Rescuing the young kittens from these
      colonies,
      then fostering them until they are old enough to be neutered
      and placed into loving homes.
    2. Educating people about
      pet abandonment. I want to help empower people to make
      a difference in an abandoned/stray
      pets’ life. You can make a difference! If you feed
      a stray cat, get it neutered. Let’s stop these stray pets
      from reproducing and creating more burden on you and our
      community. If you need help…ask for help! If you are
      not sure what to do….Just ask! That is what we are
      here to do! If we can’t help or don’t know the
      answer, we may have some other options/other people that
      can help.
    3. Spay/Neuter projects for owned pets. We need
      to stop the overwhelming number of pets that end up in
      shelters or
      are euthanized because there are not enough available homes.

    We are very excited to accomplish our goals and set new
    ones. We look forward in making a lot of friends along the
    way.
