Issues: Animals

Location: PO Box 347228 Miami FL 33234 USA

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.

The Cat Network has done and keep doing an amazing job in our community.
They serve as the foster homes for countless cats and make every effort to place cats in loving homes. Providing low cost spaying and neutering, support for fostering, adoption and educational programs. A source of recommendation of services, products and everything to help cat owners.
A group of purrfect volunteers working for over 20 years! Bravo for the excellent job they do.
We at A Country Cat House a feline only resort and spa in Miami Florida have take care of many of the "adopted" cats and it is visible the love this cats have from their "foster parents' and then their subsequent permanent parents.

The cat network has done so much here in Miami dade. The pound here had been horrific 25-30 rears ago. Cat Network did the jobs that the county wouldn't. Like education, TNR, help orphans and worked with the pound to find homes (with other groups). I was trying to do these things alone, and could help and place a number of them. When CN was formed they did it on a very needed large scale. The Meow Mobile has been incredible. They do a terrific service to so many kitties that would not be here either in loving homes or in a cared for colony. My heart is right there with them. Kudos to CN!!!

As a pre-vet student, I volunteered with the Cat Network helping to provide cheap spay/neuter surgeries for pets and feral cats. Many people do not understand the importance of spaying and neutering animals. It helps to control the animal population so that thousands of cats and dogs don't need to be euthanized each year. The people I worked with while volunteering work very hard and deserve a lot of recognition. If more people put their time and effort into great causes like this the world would be a better place.

Many people are not aware of the issue of "community cats", their plight, their suffering and how their existence affects us. The Cat Network in Miami has constructively addressed problems for 18 years through the tremendous dedication of members and volunteers. By humanely addressing overpopulation with sterilization, helping find homes for adoptable cats and educating people how to help solve problems this organization has made great inroads in Miami-Dade County toward progress on this issue.

They work hard to provide low-cost spay/neuter services for feral cats and companion cats, and help spread education on the positive impact that spay/neutering has on the community.

Thank God for the Cat Network. I have fixed many cats in my neighborhood with their low cost spay neuter certificates; I would not have afforded it without these. I have helped others get certificates and fix cats in their neighborhoods as well. Many people want to help but can only afford a limited amount, and CN makes even a small amount viable for helping the kitties.
Whenever I see one of these "fixed" kitties now, I feel good: he or she will have a better, healthier life, and there will be fewer starving, ill kitties out there. CN has helped me contribute something to help make the world a better place, and that is a wonderful feeling.
