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.

We are looking to raise $10,000 for Karma’s recovery. She was surrendered to us on 7/3/18 by her owner who purchased her from a puppy store a couple of days before. The owner said she was an “impulse” purchase and didn’t have time for her. She tried to “return” her to the puppy store and get her money back and they refused. So, thankfully, she came to us.
Upon intake, Karma was obviously sick and lethargic. She went right to our vet and has been there ever since, fighting for her life. She tested positive for parvo, an extremely serious disease, especially in a young puppy.
Due to the extended time at the vet and the medications, fluids, antibiotics and vitamins she has been receiving, she is slowly improving. But the cost for her care is astronomical. Any amount you can donate is welcome.
