Bobbi and the Strays believe that animals deserve our love, compassion, and respect. Our purpose is to undertake rescue operations and to provide essential care for orphaned, stray, abused and special needs cats and dogs.
Through rehabilitation, socialization, and adoption, we endeavor to provide a humane service to all animals that come into our care. Additionally, we generate awareness about the prevention of animal abuse and neglect as well as spay/neuter programs and their important effect on the dog and cat overpopulation crisis.
Through the years our mission has evolved from just rescue and adoption to community service and educational programs to improve the quality of life to all of the NYC boroughs and Long Island.
Our rescues are brought to schools to provide awareness, help prevent animal abuse and bullying by demonstrating and teaching love, compassion, and respect for life.
By establishing a program that serves low-income families, the elderly and disabled individuals, we bring the communities and animals together for a life of harmony through love and compassion for all.
Bobbi and the Strays’ has dedicated staff and volunteers who help rescue, foster, and care for the animals. Other volunteers coordinate fundraising & adoption events and contribute to special projects as well as complete routine administrative tasks. Find Out More
Spay & Neuter
Millions of pets are euthanized in US shelters year. Even with more people choosing to adopt rather than buy, there is simply not enough homes for all the animals. While ten thousand humans are born every day, 70,000 puppies and kittens are born. The only way to keep the pet population under control is for owners to spay and neuter their pets.

A good samaritan found a small orange kitten in the snow. He had icicles hanging from his face, he was literally skin and bones, his eyes were crusted shut, his nose was clogged and running with green phlegm and he had two different parasites. He was 3-4 months old and at death’s door. He is named Michael, because the name means “gift from God”. He was treated with eye medications, oral antibiotics, fluid, food and plenty of tender loving care from the staff. He is now a healthy, happy kitten!!
This rescue highlights the vital work that is always being done at Bobbi & The Strays.
Noah is a sweet dog that has had a very rough life. Some good samaritans found him wandering in the street. His fur was all matted. His eyes were crusty from infection and he was severely emaciated. A stick was embedded deeply into his fur, as well as shards of metal. Noah is 8-10 years old, mostly deaf and completely blind. He is currently in foster care. Noah is a wonderful, brave boy, awaiting his forever home.
