Mission: The Cat Network is a grass-roots organization with over 2500 volunteer and donor members. Its members have trapped,sterilized and vaccinated against rabies over 51,000 stray and abandoned cats since its inception in December, 1995. It is our mission to make everyone aware of this huge community problem and to be proactive in fighting it by spaying and neutering pets and strays, alike. We encourage the public to adopt stray and abandoned cats as indoor-only pets and practice responsible ownership. We also mediate with planned communities and multi-family developments to enact TNR (trap/neuter/release) efforts rather than extermination of stray cats on their properties. Through combined efforts with other local animal agencies we are working to make South Florida a No-Kill community. We also cooperate with and assist other local governmental agencies in animal hoarder situations.
Results: Our members have trapped and sterilized over 51,000 stray and abandoned cats and have adopted out over 7,000 cats since our inception in December of 1995.
Target demographics: Stray and feral cats.
Geographic areas served: South Florida
Programs: The Cat Network maintains several programs to provide a better life for stray and abandoned cats. Our Spay/Neuter Program is supported by over 40 local area veterinary clinics, and provides low cost sterilization and vaccination. Our Adoption Referral Program provides a much needed outlet for adopting stray and abandoned cats. Our Special Needs Program financially assists members seeking medical attention for injured and ill cats that they have rescued.

I've been a member for four years now and have benefited greatly from Cat Network, inc. From deals on cat supplies to helpful hints dealing with all aspects of cat care, they have always been most helpful.

Awesome service ! I've had as many as 20 cats and abandoned kittens spayed or neutered using the Meow Mobile or the low cost certificates. This is an absolute Godsend ! I will continue to use and recommend to everyone , I can't thank them enough for their help

Continue with the good work that you have placed in the hearts of so many innocent animals. Saving lives and finding homes for them in the same light are a blessings on their own.

First, my own cat, MaddieCat was adopted from this organization. She was one of 3 black feral kittens that a member rescued and fostered till they all had homes.
Second, because they have (pressured and) partnered with Miami Dade Animal Services, they were able to convince the county commissioners to change it to a no kill shelter and which now offers FREE spaying and neutering of stray feral cats. They now support TNR efforts.
I used this service myself this January 2015. I trapped and fixed 6 neighborhood cats that I sometimes feed. I borrowed a drop trap and regular trap from the CatNetwork to take them to Animal Services. Thank Goodness for this organization for helping cats.

The CATNETWORK has worked to reduce the feral cat population with TNR. they have rescued and found homes for thousand of the abandon cats left at our Animal Services (the pound), shopping centers, empty lots etc. I love the idea of the MEOW MOBILE. It is a specially outfitted van that is a clinic. This enables them to go into many different neighborhoods to provide the low cost spay/neuter services, where vet service may not be in existance. Additonally, the weekend shows which they bring cats to be adopted helped me to adopt my current black cat.Both the Animal Shelter and Our local no kill shelter are both in the north end of our county only.We are in pet food stores on Miami Beach, and the western and southern areas or our large county.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

by adopting a cat from one of their shows.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting other caring cat lovers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

knowledgeable about cat matters such as health, behavior and working within our local laws.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy another Meow Mobile and purchase air time on radio shows or newspaper ads geared to the local neighborhoods.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

One day I noticed a couple kittens near my work. I followed them and found out there were many strays living behind the buildings. Each week I trapped a few and took them to get spayed and neutered. As a Cat Network member I was able to use the mobile unit or a participating vet with the certificate. Without this organization there is no way I could have spayed/neutered the number of I did. Thank You Cat Network...

Without The Cat Network, Miami Dade County residents would not have the opportunity to help stray and feral cats like they do due to this organization. This organization helps residents with low cost spay and neuter. Without them, I could never have afforded to help as many innocent lives as I have done. THANK YOU Cat Network.

Cat Network is a great organization helping cats by educating people on TNR, low cost spaying and neutering, etc.
My Dad has neutered and spayed many cats that are constantly dumped at his home by people. He is retired and a low income elderly man so Cat Network has been a blessing for him and the many cats he helps.

I am a member of The Cat Network and have read and witnessed the great that this group does for the cats in the community. They work tirelessly to TNR the cats in the greater Miami-Dade area and to educate the public on the benefits of TNR not to mention the fostering and adoption program that they continue to work on. I see all of the volunteering and work they put into the adoption weekends at my local Petsmart and the difference they make for our feline friends looking for a permanent home.

Definitely
