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.

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!

The staff of Fixnation are amazing. Everyone was friendly, helpful and informative. The veterinarian who saw our cat, Stanton, even commented on how handsome he is. Now, his nickname is Handsome Stanton. Because he was from a litter of strays, and the people of Fixnation have been so wonderful, we have now signed up for their Trap and Release program to help control the cat population in our neighborhood. This program deserves generous funding because they do great work for so many communities and they help so many animals. Thank you, Fixnation!

I can't find anything bad about Fixnation. There were too many cats around my block and my neighbors would always complain but we all felt bad for the cats and didn't know what to do. I finally decided to try TNR and went to Fixnation for help. THEY MAKE EVERYTHING EASY. You have nice and helpful people that teach you everything about TNR and make you realize how unbelievably simple it is to help the cats around your neighborhood. Fixnation is awesome.

I am unemployed and I have a 7 year old male cat whom I could not afford to provide regular shots. I have read about Fixnation and took my cat there. They are wonderful people with great service. I asked about what kind of shots they reccommend to my cat and they were very honest. They did not try to talk me into extra service just what my cat needed. Thank you Fixnation. Now I know my cat will be in good hands in the future!

I found myself overwelmed trying to figure out how I could afford to get the kitty population hanging out on my property under control. I started with one at a time but it seemed that the kitties were populating faster than I could work the vet bills into my budget. By chance I saw a public service announcement on TV talking about Fixnation. My prayers were answered. Now three years later and at least 30 fixed cats I remain grateful for the tremendous services that I have received. The kitty population is under control at my home, mom's home and a friends home. We are eternally grateful to Fixnation and all of the staff that make this very important service possible. I wasnt always able to leave a donation but now Fixnation is a monthly part of my budget. THANK YOU!

I have been TNRing for a long time. I have helped so many people in low income areas and areas overrun with feral cats. I have no idea where we would be nor the cats, if Fixnation did not exist. In fact, I wish there was another facility, so more people could utilize this much needed service.

Thank you for all you do and your amazing staff!

I started volunteering for the Catnipper's clinics which reminded me of a big mash unit. Tents and lots of volunteers and row and rows of kitties in traps to be spayed and neutered. I was just in awe of all the people that would show up those early mornings bringing in cat after cat to be fixed.

Thank God for Fixnation as we trappers are out there every week. I have helped so many people that love and care for cats just as much as I do. I know at Fixnation the kitties will get the royal treatment needed before being released, and I don't know what we would do, if we did not have Fixnation.

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

With the help of a local rescue group, I've had several of the cats in my feral colony fixed at Fixnation. They are an amazing group and are doing an incredible job. I am so grateful for their help.

FixNation is a God send!! I was becoming overrun by feral kitties and I could not afford to get them all spayed/neutered on my own.....I did the best I could. In desperation, I did a search on the internet and came across FixNation!! I completed the application, and got a call right away. Over the years, I have TNR about 50 cats or so. I even volunteer to TNR other feral kitties in the neighborhood, just to give them a chance at a quality of life. The feral kitties that have survived to date, have become family members now. While some we still cannot touch or pet, we can talk to them and they won't run. We are always happy when we call them by a name we given them and they will come to eat. We have also set up a shelter for them so that they have a place to stay dry.... some kitties use them and some don't but it is there for them. I truly do not know what I would have done without FixNation!! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!! I wish other counties had a FixNation.....I know there are so many more kitties out there that need help!!
