Welcome to Friends of Strays

Friends of Strays is a non-profit organization located in St. Petersburg, FL, dedicated to the care and adoption of homeless pets.

Our organization is funded by individual contributions, wills, bequests, and memberships. Friends of Strays provides services to the most needy section of our pet population, the homeless animals of Pinellas County. These services include the daily care, sterilization and temporary shelter until adoption of the pet can be arranged. The primary goal of Friends of Strays is to stop the reproduction of homeless cats and dogs who are abandoned and left to roam, unable to care for themselves. We are active in programs which educate the public about humane treatment and care of animals. Friends of Strays is a no-kill animal organization dedicated to caring for those who cannot speak for themselves - our voiceless friends - the animals.
