Cat Network (CN) has been extremely instrumental in defending the lives of innocent cats in my community of the Hammocks, in Miami Florida. In August 2011, the association had approved a motion to remove 200 cats from our 1,100 acre community, which meant that they were going to be sent to Animal Control, where 97% of them get killed. CN got involved, first by providing expert speakers & members explaining the advantages of using the more humane alternative of TNR - "trap-neuter-vaccinate-return" for the cats instead of the cruel "removal" option (which does not fix problem, because of the "Vacuum effect" - where other animals move into the same habitat area again). With resident participation and CN members, we were able to make a difference & get the "removal" motion dismissed & open to the idea of TNR. In addition, several of the CN members / volunteers have provided their resources & time in neutering numerous cats in our community.
