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.

This is a great group of people who do so much for feral and stray cat's in the Miami area. They work to catch, neuter and release feral cats in addition to assisting with the adoption process of hundreds of cats per year.

On two occasions, once in 2009 and again in 2013, the Cat Network organized the TNR (trap, neuter, return) of more than 70 cats living on the streets in the Miami Beach area. Without their help, this enormous project wouldn't have been the success that it was. Their dedication to the practice of TNR, the spaying and neutering of feral cat colonies, is outstanding. Many lives were saved and much suffering prevented. I cannot thank this group of dedicated volunteers enough for helping me to help the stray cats of Miami.

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

These are some of the hardest working volunteers advocating for spay and neuter of Florida's stray cats. I would change nothing about them.

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!

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

Their dedication to saving cats, and the speed at which they respond to cats in danger/need.

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!

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.

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

They provided invaluable help to rescue and relocate to permanent homes the cats belonging to a neighbor who had passed away. They have assisted with trapping and neuter/spay of many cats belonging to friends.

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

Learning how to save and rescue and finding hope for change.

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

Dedicated, committed to their cause, caring and generous with their time.

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

Disseminate the needed information and awareness thoughout the community, save the life of every cat, and stop unwanted overpopulation.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
