The Cat Network has made a tremendously positive impact on the welfare of cats in Miami, Florida. With the year-long sub-tropical weather, cats in this area breed year round and the stray cat population is estimated around half a million. Cat Network, since its inception in 1996, has been able to spay and neuter almost 60,000 cats. I have played a part in the organization as one of the veterinarians that performs the spay & neuter surgeries. In the last 18 months, I've personally sterilized close to 3,000 cats for Cat Network, and we are still going strong! The organization also makes an impact in the rescue/adoption of cats that are placed in loving homes, educating the public, and intervening in issues where cats interface with the population. There are several dedicated volunteers within the network and there is great potential to do a LOT of good for the animals and the people of South Florida.

The Great!

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

watching stray & homeless cats find loving homes, & preventing unwanted growth of the stray cat population by spaying and neutering. There are too many homeless and unwanted cats in this community, and I've seen first-hand how Cat Network makes its impact

The Cat Network is an amazing organization. It is a community run collaboration that has provided so many needed services in our area. They bridge the gaps that other organizations cannot fill and reach out into under-serviced sections of the community. Cat Network members work tirelessly (all on a volunteer basis) to combat feline overpopulation and suffering in South Florida.

When I first started helping my cousin, I didn't know how involved I would be. His charity really helped me realized that helping his little feline friends would be a worth while cause. They are cared for and I mean really cared for. They get medical attention, Love care and even adopted. It's not many places you can go to and find cats being loved and Happy! The Cat Network, Inc. does all of this and I am so happy to be a volunteer and a supporter for them.

Spreading the word. If more funds were given or donated to the Cat Network, Inc., I am sure that we would have no problem marketing this organization who does so much for their community and more.

Once you join the Cat Network, Inc, you are hooked.

The Cat Network is a grass-roots organization with over 2,500 volunteer and donor members. 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. 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.

The first time I came across a homeless kitty I wasn't quite sure how to find it a home. I came across The Cat Network volunteers in a local PetSmart. They walked me through the process of becoming a member and joining the adoption referral program. Because of this program, I was able to place 6 kitties.

I am an active member of the Cat Network, i joined about 2 years ago and I have found strong support to be able to do rescue, foster and adoption placements. My latest rescues are 5 kittens, 2 blacks, 1 grey tabby, 1 orange tabby and 1 russian blue type. They all have been tested negative for Felv and Fiv. For now they are being fostered in my house until I find them a good home. The last adoptions were made from a nice young couple from Puerto Rico who adopted Sammy a beautiful Turkish-Angora type male which was taken to a vet to put down for no reason he is in a happy home now. Then other young couple from Mexico who adopted Mia a sweet grey tabby type female, 3 years old, now loved by them, and Luna a 2 years old brown tabby adopted by a Colombian couple,, she is now safe and love by her adoptive parents too. Its been rewarding to have saved these creatures and placed in good homes, and gives you fuel to keep going. But without all the support from the Cat Network would not have been a happy ending.

This organization is so vitally important to our community. They provide one of the few viable and humane options to the tragic and excessive euthanasia of thousands of cats in South Florida. They teach and empower others to spay & neuter, rescue and adopt. I have seen first hand how seriously committed and dedicated they are, and how much they have helped friends and neighbors.

The Cat Network assist individuals in spaying and neutering feral cats that they feed. Through a certificate program they employ, they are able to offer spay/neuter services for feral cats to it's member for $25.00 through a network of vets throughout the county. Without The Cat Network's good work, the feral cat population in Miami-Dade County would be much worse than it is.
