Who We Are

Carin' About the Strays is based out of Cookeville, Tennessee, serving Putnam County. We specialize in pregnant females, orphaned kittens, and injured animals which are treated at Ragland and Riley Veterinary Hospital. Our rescued animals are placed in a foster home, where they can be socialized and house trained, which gives them a better chance to be adopted and make the adoption more successful. We also work with current owners to keep their animals at home by helping with things such as spay and neuter. We are primarily a cat rescue but will try to find dogs and other animals the help they need. Our animals have come from environments that were not healthy for them, such as abandoned animals, orphaned kittens, pregnant females, or animals that were given up due to owner financial or other issues.

Get Involved

Carin’ About The Strays depends solely on volunteers. We rely on sponsors and donations to pay for medical bills for our rescue animals. We are always looking for foster parents for our animals to provide a loving and caring home while they wait to be adopted.


Foster an Animal

Many of the cats we rescue have had bad experiences with the human population and are scared and untrusting. By becoming a caring foster home you will be able to socialize and gain the animals trust, making them better prepared to be adopted into their forever homes.


Donate Supplies

We happily accept food and supplies, such as pet carriers, cat toys, treats, and anything else that can help with the health and comfort of our animals while they are in our care. Any and all donations are appreciated! Click here to view our Amazon Wishlist!
