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.

FixNation is an example of what an animal welfare agency should be. They provide spay/neuter services to feral cats at no cost. The positive effect of eliminating the ability of stray cats to breed is huge. It impacts the community, fiscally and ethically by preventing stray animals from re-populating feral colonies with more and more homeless cats. FixNation's value is almost impossible to calculate. First rate vet care available from a dedicated, talented staff dramatically improves the life of every animal that passes through the clinic. They operate on a very tight budget and deserve support (of all kinds) from the public that benefits from their services.
