No More Strays, Inc: Saving Animals One Stray At A Time

by Lori Wheeler

A dog that was later named Patrick was thrown down a trash chute and left to die. 

A wonderful worker found the garbage bag moving and when it was opened was what was left of a dog.  He was clinging to life and rushed to the hospital.

That is where we come in.  

Jebediah is a gorgeous Tan/White American Bulldog mix. He is intact and 3 years old. He is also a very nice boy who just sat quietly in his kennel. He wanted to be petted which is why he was pushing his head up against the fence in the second picture!!!!! Jebediah is at risk for being euthanized any time and needs a rescue or foster to save his life. If you are able to foster, a rescue is much more likely to be able to get him out and save his life. Jebediah has $70 in sponsorship and 21 days of paid boarding if needed by the rescue. If you can help, please contact or

The public outcry for animal welfare was in the spotlight with Patrick. People from all over the globe starting speaking out for Patrick and other animals just like him.

We started the Patrick's Movement Maryland chapter to fight for tougher laws.  

In April I wanted to reach a larger audience so @Patricksmovment was born. Months of circulating hundreds of animals we were able to save over 210 to date.

We have accomplished so much with just word of mouth, tweets and Facebook posts. The family and I decided that we wanted to do even more.

After a very long family meeting we decided that stating a non-profit was the best way to save more animals.  

Lawyers, IRS representatives and a few more bumps in the process we were finally going forward with our dream of saving more animals.

No More Strays, Inc was formed!  

What makes this any different then @Patricksmovment?  We are operating on donations only and already have a 5K planned for April with tons of animals available for adoption.

We hope to continue to raise money to save animals that may otherwise never stand a chance.  

Our Animals services here in MD often euthanize animals due to overcrowding and sickness. Overcrowding is a HUGE problem all around the globe.  Spay and Neuter is one of the only ways to control the unwanted animals. The cost to spay and neuter in this economy is often one that is not a priority for pet owners.

We are going to work towards programs in all states to allow pet owners to have their pet spayed or neutered. 

The animals that are in high kill shelters that become sick are very often put on the kill list for that day. If we know the animal is adoptable our goal is to be able to sponsor these animals until they are in their forever home.

Every animal deserves a chance to be loved and cared for.  

Every dollar counts towards saving an animal.  An early kind person that donated said that a lot of pebbles makes a mountain.  Please help us build that mountain by adding a pebble.


No More Strays, Inc is a non-profit organization, pending our 501 3 (C) certificate, that raises funds for animal rescue and low cost spay and neuter across the United States.
