Cat Network, Inc.
August 18, 2011

I have been a member (volunteer)) for 15 years. This group helped me when I encountered a group of 30 stray and very sickly thin abandoned cats. If it hadn't been for their assistance in teaching me how to trap and helping with low cost resources, I would have never been able to do anything to help those animals. Cat network is incredibly focused on reducing the cat stray population. With very little funds, they have accomplished wonders by involving local vets! They now have a spay/neuter mobile to provide low cost services in various areas. There are no similar services around. They educate and assist the community, enabling them to help spay the stray cats. This service is so very necessary, we are now joining efforts with other animal welfare organizations and are starting to make a bigger impact. Please help them in their very worthwhile efforts.

The Great!

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

TNR (Trap neuter release) projects in various areas where people were overwhelmed with kitties. After the Cat Network intervention there has been a noticeable decrease in populations and results have been amazing. Cats continue to live in these colonies, controlled by the feeders and everyone is much happier

Ways to make it better...

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

Give them grants so they can expand their work. There is a great need for a 2nd spay/neuter truck and ideally a shelter for adoptable animals.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Definitely taught me to overcome my shyness and approach people to get involvement in such amazing worthwhile goal. Finding homes for these very needy suffering sick and starving stray animals has completely changed my life.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Nothing in my life has been so worthwhile as seeing a raggedy sick and starving, weak cat become transformed in only a matter of a week! To realize that these poor animals can be helped with so little, and to feel their love and gratitude after they realize you are trying to help... this has been the most amazing experience of my life!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
