About Us

Friends of Strays is a non-profit organization founded in 1978 in St. Petersburg, FL, dedicated to the care and adoption of homeless pets.


Our mission is to inspire compassion for all animals, provide shelter and humane care to homeless animals, and promote adoptions and responsible pet guardianship in our community.


Through our efforts, there will be a safe and loving home for every adoptable animal and humane treatment for all.


Please take a moment to listen to this video of Co-Founder Jean Bomonti telling the story of how we came to be and why our mission to save the homeless and abandoned animals lives on in her legacy. We hope her words have a profound impact on your decision to support Friends of Strays.
