The Cat Network is a relatively small organization that does some pretty big deeds to greatly improve the lives of feral and free roaming cats in and around Miami. Last year alone its members sterilized 6100 cats at participating low cost vets and also took their mobile surgical unit to areas where there were high populations of homeless cats. CN volunteers made hundreds of successful adoptions as well as transporting hundreds of kittens from high kill shelters to northern states where they were wanted and could more easily find loving homes during the winter months. Network is their name and that's exactly what they do, we all try and help each other in any way we can to help the cats.

The Cat Network is making a huge difference in the lives of homeless cats in Miami from free and low cost spay days, to pulling kittens from a high kill shelter and transporting them to a no kill shelter up north to the adoption referral program. The Cat Network has saved the lives of countless cats in South Florida and prevented the birth of many many more.

I am so happy to have an opportunity to write about The Cat Network. I was blessed the day I found them; I care for a small colony of ferals and found myself fighting neighbors that were getting sick of them. One of the techs at my vet's office mentioned them to me, and we were off! They helped me with the TNR process with my colony, and today they are calm happy kitties, no more kittens running around in danger. I couldn't sleep everytime there was a new litter, I sleep just fine now ;) They are the most knowledgeable, fast-acting, dedicated, and kind people I know. This is an incredible organization that any other should be happy to model themselves after. Thank you Cat Network, I don't know where I'd be without you!

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

To help their amazing work! I've also sent them items like blankets or feeding kits for the foster kitties, no cat is ever turned away!

Why did you make your donation at this time?

I've made more than one, money and items for the cats. Because they need all the support they can get to continue the incredible work they do.

What would you tell others about this organization?

What I have told others is that there are no other cat rescuers that compare to The Cat Network, and I've been involved with animal activists for many years, I know!

Cat Network (CN) has been extremely instrumental in defending the lives of innocent cats in my community of the Hammocks, in Miami Florida. In August 2011, the association had approved a motion to remove 200 cats from our 1,100 acre community, which meant that they were going to be sent to Animal Control, where 97% of them get killed. CN got involved, first by providing expert speakers & members explaining the advantages of using the more humane alternative of TNR - "trap-neuter-vaccinate-return" for the cats instead of the cruel "removal" option (which does not fix problem, because of the "Vacuum effect" - where other animals move into the same habitat area again). With resident participation and CN members, we were able to make a difference & get the "removal" motion dismissed & open to the idea of TNR. In addition, several of the CN members / volunteers have provided their resources & time in neutering numerous cats in our community.

Approx. 13 years ago I encountered a group of cats that were in very bad condition. Approx. 30. At the time I was not in good financial situation and lived in a tiny studio apt. so I couldn't possibly take them in. I started looking for help and found The Cat Network. A lady came out to assess the situation and told me what to do and how. She loaned me traps, went out there with me to show me how. She would even help me recoup the cats after surgery. She got me involved in the adoption program where I could find some of these kitties homes and so I started helping the cats. Before I knew it, I had sterilized all the kitties and found homes for most. It is a wonderful organization that enables you so you can help the stray cats in your area. Each sterilization is $25. Can't get cheaper than that!! I have remained a member since and volunteer in whatever capacity I can at any given time. It is a truly worthwhile organization that has made a huge difference for the kitties in our area.

I originally joined Cat Network in 1998 when a stray mom cat came into my yard and had her kittens. By joining Cat Network, I was able to sterilize the mom and kittens and find homes for the kittens through the CN adoption program. It was great to find them good homes and I enjoyed meeting and talking to potential adopters and all the other foster parents. I volunteered to help with a TNR project at the local college where over 300 cats were living and reproducing. Now, I sterilize 100+ cats per year and find homes for about 60 of them. Cat Network is making a huge difference in Miami-Dade County. They offer many solutions to otherwise desperate homeowners with cats and kittens in their neighborhoods by providing low-cost spay/neuter, loaning traps & carriers, providing adoption venues and most importantly educating the public on TNR.

Cat Network has assisted me in finding good homes for many orphaned & abandoned cats and kittens. They have great resources such as an informative website, social media groups and partnerships with PetsMarts and Pet Supermarkets in the Miami area. They also assist elderly and disabled citizens in Miami when they need a cat trapped and transported to the vet and they provide low-cost spay and neuter certificates for everyone. Cat Network has done a wonderful job in controlling an out-of-control problem throughout Miami-Dade County.

TheCat Network is very helpful in helping cats and kittens in need. I have been a member for over 10 years and have found their resouces - low cost spay neuter, networking, low cost vaccines, advice, etc - to be very helpful. I would and do recommend the Cat Network all the time!

The Great!

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

many capacities. I use the low cost spay/neuter programs and encourage other to do the same. I have fostered and adolpted cats and worked with other members on trap neuter and release programs to help cats in need.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

maybe have more resources available in my neighborhood, like meetings in Homestead intead of Miami.

The Cat Network is the lead grassroots organization in all of Miami for spay & neuter initiatives on stray and feral cats. As a veterinarian in the field, I greatly support Cat Network's role in preventing cat overpopulation and providing better lives for cats in urban Miami. They are a role model group with a lot of members and volunteers that really shine!

Spay Panama, affiliated with Spay USA, has spayed and neutered nearly 35,000 animals. It is strictly an NGO, with no funding or other assistance from the Government of Panama, and has a dedicated team of physicians who are highly skilled in spaying and neutering dogs and cats. I have volunteered at Spay Panama, and have adopted 4 kittens from spay clinics I have volunteered at. Spay Panama plays an important role in improving the skills of local veterinarians and in public education on humane animal care and the need for spay and neuter.

The Cat Network is devoted to the welfare of cats by trapping, spay/neuter, and release feral cats. I have known them for the last 15 years when visiting pet stores where they try to get kitties adopted. Their project of spaying/neuter 5,000 cats in the area of Miami Beach is worth a lot of merit. It is quite sad to see how cats are abandoned by their owners to fend by themselves without water or food. Kitties born to feral cats sometimes die of hunger or under a car. I just wish people were more conscious and responsible pet owners.

The Great!

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

Friends of mine have used the Cat Network and have seen results. The feral cats were spayed/neutered and some were adopted.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it compulsory in Miami-Dade residents to have spayed/neutered cats and to provide water, food, and shelter for feral cats.
