Especially when you don't have the finance to take them to a vet.

How about sick stray pets?

I don't know about where you live but around here you might as well put the animal down yourself rather than take it to a "shelter".

DIY, umm... google... watch a video showing you what to look for.

Experiment. I kid. That's mean.

I'd take a loan or ask for help, there are probably lots of animal lovers near you who would make taking it to a vet feasable.

There are no kill shelters, you might see if there is one in your area.
What appears to wrong with it anyway?

Maybe you should leave it alone? Let it die by itself, sounds harsh, I know, but they're stray.

If you believe the animal is sick keep it in a separate room from any other animals you have. Go online and search for the Humane Society contact info for your state (assuming you are in America). In my state they have a list of 16 "no kill" shelters that animals can be brought to.

Take it to a shelter because AZ law says the animal is yours after five days

I know where my local RSPCA so I'd take it there. I've even taken a stray kitten only a few weeks old to the Caribbean version 'SPCA when I found it on my way to school. I knew it because that's where we got our pet dogs from.

There might be a free clinic for animals in your area. They're usually not qualified for bigger stuff like surgery, but they can supply most medicines. And yes, definitely look for No Kill shelters. Sometimes there are even special shelters specifically for the care of cats (dogs, reptiles, etc) as opposed to mix shelters where the people working there might not be as educated on the specific care for the species.
