Issues: Animals

Location: 7680 Clybourn Avenue Los Angeles CA 91352 USA

Mission: FixNation’s mission is to reduce the population of homeless cats by sterilizing as many as possible. At the same time, by consistently showing the effectiveness of Trap-Neuter-Return, we seek changes in public policy so that TNR becomes the officially sanctioned and government-funded approach to homeless cat management.
Results: FixNation has fixed nearly 75,000 cats since its inception in 2007! In this same time, the euthanasia rates for cats in the LA City and County shelters has dropped by 40%. FixNation's work is making a direct impact on the lives of cats! FixNation staff have trained thousands of community members in humane and best practices for Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) programs. To support TNR, FixNation also loans traps free of charge to the public.
Target demographics: Stray and feral, homeless cats; Colony Caregivers
Direct beneficiaries per year: 20,000+ homeless cats and their caregivers.
Geographic areas served: Los Angeles and Surrounding Areas
Programs: To achieve this mission, FixNation operates the nation's first full-time clinic dedicated to high-volume spay-neuter of homeless cats. FixNation devotes its resources (83% of every dollar raised) directly toward decreasing the number of unowned homeless cats though free and low-cost sterilization services at our clinic, and TNR training and support.

My purpose for leaving this review is to let people know about this wonderful cat resource in our city! I found this organization at at time when I really needed help. Two amazing kittens were abandoned and left in my care. At the time I didn't have the resources to care for more animals because my dogs & cats had serious health issues. Not only was it nice to have an organization get back to me, but the information that I received was detailed and delivered so promptly by Ms. Ivy Ramirez. Although the kittens were a project that came at a difficult time, I learned so much from these furry little ones and I now have passed on Fixnation information to everyone I know telling them to make sure to keep this organization in mind as a wonderful resource for the cats in our community!

Fixnation is a WONDERFUL organization but I have personally made a decision to no longer support their efforts because of Ms. Ivy Ramirez. She is patronizing and sarcastic and I'm not going to tolerate her behavior any more.
Fixnation should re-evaluate Ms. Ramirez's role in their organization, perhaps she would better serve them if she had less contact with the public.

This org has been a godsend to the greater LA area in trying to keep the feral cat population at bay and in helping to decrease it. W/o this org, we would have been inundated w/ unwanted cats in our neighborhood, many of whom would've been subjected to abuse by less caring if not hostile neighbors.
Over the past 5 years, we have taken in about 40 cats through their TNR program. We have also taken in our pet cats to their low-cost spay/neuter program. I only wish that there was another FixNation more centrally located in LA city because our area of LA really needs the service.
FixNation has always been professional, organized, efficient and caring in providing their services. The dedicated and helpful staff is a joy to work w/, esp. to see how much they care about poor unwanted cats and your pet cats.
I give to this org whenever i can - monetary donations and in-kind donations. I wish the nation could clone orgs like FixNation and have one or two in every major city. What a better world we'd have then.

I could not be more impressed by this clinic -- super organized, expertly and efficiently run, clean, friendly and compassionate staff and volunteers. It is very likely the the most well-run charity I have ever encountered, and that's coming from someone with a background in the nonprofit sector. I recently took in 3 community cats who live in my back garden and things could not have gone more smoothly. What a wonderful service they are providing the community and our furry feline friends. i plan to be a supporter henceforth in whatever way i can.

To all the dedicated staff and volunteers I thank you. They all treated me and other clients (while I was there) with respect and professionlism. I give this locatiton my full support and would go back again. If there is one area to address it is the odor issue, other than that, you won't find a better place. Can't thank you enough. May God bless you for me.

Fix Nation is great if you need help with cats. If there are feral cats in neiborhood they can help to fix them at low or no cost and provides all kind of information and help. Donations are welcome. I have taken there six cats... got info from a friend in art class...

I have been working with fixnation to TNR a colony of 65 cats. They are efficient, friendly and really care about the animals that come into their care for surgery and medical care and are SUPER knowledgeable, taking the time to talk to me about each feral cat and their needs. They are AWESOME!
