Christi Metropole
When Christi Metropole encountered a stray and needy kitten in 1999, she was appalled to learn that little to no resources existed to help her, her cat, and thousands like them. As a result, she founded Stray Cat Alliance, and soon feral and free-roaming cats had found a formidable ally.

Under Christi’s unwavering leadership, hundreds of volunteers and scores of donors have since united to provide education, human power and skills to provide trap-neuter-return (TNR) for thousands of cats who need help. Under her astute direction, Stray Cat Alliance’s dedicated network helps ensure a safer, healthier quality of life for feral, stray, homeless or community cats (often misunderstood and targeted) who wouldn’t otherwise survive and flourish.

Christi is acknowledged as an influential and candid voice for those cats. She is the “go to” source on the subject, and her opinion is sought by other humane proponents needing sound advice. She is frequently requested as a speaker on critical issues related to cat care and protection, laws regarding humane treatment and human health-related concerns. Her experience as a teacher with Los Angeles Unified School District and as a realtor with Keller Williams Realty Brentwood has honed integral skills that help strategically steer the course and further development of Stray Cat Alliance.
