Friends of Strays is a non-profit, volunteer organization founded in September 1978 in St. Petersburg, FL, dedicated to the care and adoption of homeless pets.
The organization is funded by individual contributions, wills, bequests, memberships, and proceeds from our Thrift Shoppe in Pinellas Park. 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 Animal 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.
