Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal-Related, Animal Services, Animals, Cats

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.

Always a pleasant and first rate experience when I take my cats to the meow mobile. They are very thorough, take their time, ad take great care of the cats while in their care. All are true animal lovers. They are also wonderful at providing resources for helping people retome an animal or helping members help themself. A true grassroots organization!

The Cat Network is really helps it’s community, not only by spaying and neutering community cats but by educating the public about WHY it is important to spay/neuter cats; health, less cat fighting, helping control the cat population, etc. By working with it’s Meow Mobile and private vets, this organization provides assistance to many people who could not afford to fix their cat(s) otherwise. They also assist the community with a trap-neuter-release program; trapping and training others how to trap. I have adopted 4 cats from The CatNetwork or maybe they adopted me. Either way without this organization those cats who were highly adoptable would have remained street cats. Now my oldest cat adopted from them is 15 years old and still going strong. Thank you to The CatNetwork, its Meow Mobile (and its vets and vet techs) and the people in the organization who have helped our community over the years. Without this organization Miami-Dade County would way behind in helping our cats

Cat Network has helped us control the overpopulation of cats in our office complex. We were able to get all our warehouse cats spayed and neutered. Now the kittens are getting vaccinated and soon will get spayed too. The problem is not the cats, it is humans not taking care of the cats, and helping solve the problem. Thank you Cat Network! So appreciative of your services and volunteers too!

Great organization, I’ve been volunteering for over 10 years. The dedication and tireless work of everyone involved is what makes it stand the test of time.

Tackling the cat overpopulation in FL is no easy task and even with all the sterilization efforts and round the clock work, we still fall short and every year thousands of cats suffer on the streets of South Florida.

Please support The Cat Network and help us help them!

This is a highly motivated, active, committed and well organized group of selfless volunteer rescuers. Their Meow Mobile has brought extremely affordable spay and neutering services into neighborhoods that may not otherwise have access to professional veterinary services. The Cat Network trap, neuter and return program, cat colony management, adoptions and outreach has changed the fate of thousands of sick, abandoned and desperate felines all over S Florida and shown us all what kindness and intelligence can accomplish.

The organization is ran with love and care for every single cat, with all kinds of help available.
I love that they offer students opportunities to volunteer through school programs as well. I love seeing young people learn to care for and appreciate cats that they often aren't able to keep at home.

The cat network is such a great organization in Miami. It has helped us TNR so many cats in our neighborhood. We don’t have that many kitten around my house anymore with the help of the Cat Network so now we try to TNR in the surrounding areas. Without the Cat Network, we wouldn’t be able to help the cats and decrease the suffering of kittens that are born into the street life. They also assist with adopting and foster cats which was very helpful in placing adoptable cats into good homes.

The Cat Network is an excellent organization that does indispensible work in Miami-Dade (active in Broward County as well). When I think of what our community would be like without this organization, undoubtedly the lives of cats would be infinitely harder. The Cat Network fills a vital role in education, sterilzation and tnr mentoring of those who want to help community cats but don't know how, and adoption program. The Meow Mobile, the charity's mobile surgical unit, is well-respected and provides a desperately needed service, as does the certificate program, whereby local veterinarians perform surgeries for stray cats at a reduced rate, subsidized by the Cat Network. This charity is completely made up of dedicated selfless volunteers who devote their lives to helping defenseless voiceless cats.

You have never seen a more hard-working bunch in your life. Here in sunny, warm Miami the feral cat issue is absolutely enormous. CNhas been rounding up stray cats, having them fixed, de-wormed and medicated, and returned to their colonies. These kitties lead a much healthier, better life, and don't reproduce. CN volunteers foster adoptable animals and also rescue them from Animal Control to be prepared for adoption. Great group of folks, ready to help at a drop of a hat

Whiskers was the star of my first trapping project, in 2002, with The Cat Network, Inc., of Miami, FL. This gorgeous boy was part of a 90-cat colony. Most of the other cats found adoptive homes, but Whiskers was mine! Over the years he signaled illness in my other cats by gently molesting them until I noticed the problem. His infallible skill led his veterinarian to dub him "DR." Whiskers and the name stuck. Little did I dream that by the time of his death on Oct. 18, 2019, I have would have placed scores of cats in adoptive homes and done TNR for hundreds more. Beloved Dr. Whiskers was king of my house and my inspiration. Without The Cat Network, none of this would have happened. Thanks to The Cat Network for making rescue and TNR possible by giving support to individual members like me. They are the best!!!!

Over 10 years ago, I started noticing more & more cats in my neighborhood. I had no experience with cats, I had always been a dog person but I knew enough that they needed more than food, they needed to be fixed! Found Cat Network and they were so helpful, taught me about TNR, how to trap and helped get low cost spaying & neutering. Also, as a member & volunteer, I am able to order medications at a discounted rate. I never would have been able to control this cat population without their help, they're the best!

I am proud to be a part of this group of hard-working volunteers dedicated to reducing the over population of community cats in a humane manner, while allowing them the dignity to live a life free of unwanted births, fighting and harassment from people. Their mobile clinic, the Miami Meow Mobile employs a staff of tremendously talented and compassionate veterinarians and vet techs, who treat all their cat patients like a valued pet. May they keep up the great work another 25 years!

The best non-profit in Miami-Dade county is The Cat Network Inc. This organization is all about spay/neutering. They even have a mobile spay/nueter surgical unit that goes out to various locations in the community. They have been around for almost 25 years!
When I first to my neighborhood there were many cats that were not mine and they were not spayed or neutered and the President of the organization, at that time relied to me by saying: "do you want to be part of the problem or part of the solution?" The Cat Network Organization and in particular their Miami Meow Mobile have been part of the solution!

I've been fortunate to know the good works of the Cat Network for almost a decade. The cats that live better lives through adoption, TNR, humane education and strong advocacy number in the tens of thousands. They advocate and provide services for spay / neuter for cats and greatly reduce the number of homeless kittens born onto city streets. Through TNR, they provide the largest rabies vaccination program in FL.
I feel very fortunate to support this organization that performs life saving work in the community and nationally.

The Cat Network has been a godsend to me and others who want to make a difference in our community.
During the 10 years I resided in Miami Beach they were instrumental in assisting us to TNR an enormous colony in Miami Beach. With their help we were to spay and neuter over 60 community cats.
Now that we reside in the Little Havana area, they continue to be an invaluable resource with the local cats. Since we’ve been here we have TNRed several local cats for neighbors as well as street cats. There’s no doubt that without them and their incredible volunteers this community would be hard pressed to make life better for local people as well as felines.

I was a member and volunteer of the Cat Network for 3 years until I relocated to another city. The Cat Network assisted me with several friendly and feral community cats and kittens I found, providing me with a variety of flexible, low-cost spay neuter options for all of them, and adoption resources for the friendly ones. They have worked hard to build relationships with individual people, businesses, and the city and county.
I now serve on the Board of Directors for a similar community cat organization in Honolulu, HI, and have tapped the Cat Network Board of Directors and members for advice on issues that have arisen in our community.
The Cat Network is an amazing organization of committed volunteers who have dedicated their lives to improving life for the cats of South Florida.

For many years, the Cat Network has been a reputable, dependable, caring and well established organization. As an animal lover, I am extremely grateful for having the Cat Network in my area. Cats are beautiful, loving and smart creatures. Yet, too many of these wonderful and precious animals are rejected by society, they live as rodents, roaming the streets, suffering from diseases, hunger, thirst, and eventually dying a miserable slow death or getting run over by vehicles. Thanks to the Cat Network, the number of cats living such miserable lives has diminished greatly, and cat lovers no longer feel alone in their battle to end the suffering. As such, the Cat Network not only supports the well-being of cats, but also of humans, the cat lovers who need a place to turn to in their desperation to help.

Shortly after The Cat Network, Inc., was founded, two of the founders, Herta and Barbara, attended the May 11, 1996 celebration of the life of my famous performing cat Princess Kitty. They were recruiting new members, and one of the members they found that day is now the group's president. Later on I joined the group, and with their help I've placed scores of cats in good homes and TNR'd scores more, including one project where there were 90 cats on a single large property. The Cat Network has promoted the welfare of cats and the people who love them in every possible way. It is an outstanding group of unpaid volunteers who are truly deserving of community support.

I have volunteered with Cat Network (CN) for several years, because I believe it to be a very worthy organization that makes a significant difference for the betterment, in all our communities for the safety, well being & control of the feline population. The members are always willing to help out, in various situations where kitties can be in danger, so they go a step further than just sterilizing, trapping & return of cats. In addition their low cost spay/neuter clinic makes it affordable for the everyday person to give their cats the basic care they need. Strongly recommend Cat Network to others.

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.

I have been a member of Cat Network since 1996. Before that, I started my own TNR efforts in 1989 because I had seen the horrific numbers of dogs and cats killed at our county shelter, and felt that I had to do something to fight that. I was so grateful when I discovered Cat Network, thanks to my friend and fellow rescuer, Kate. Through this amazing organization, more than 90,000 cats and kittens have been sterilized, and thousands more adopted into loving homes. I have never met such dedicated people. I have served on the Board for more than 20 years, and I hope to have many younger vibrant volunteers follow in my footsteps to make this great organization even greater. Cat Network has a cooperative partnership with our county shelter, Miami-Dade Animal Services, and the Humane Society, of Greater Miami, initiated by the ASPCA. Together we have successfully worked toward making Miami a no-Kill city. We now hover around 90% No Kill. My dreams have come true!
Thank you, Cat Network for all that you do!

I was feeding a 2 stray females. One was from my elderly neighbor who had passed. They demolished his house and she moved to mine when she saw me feeding the first stray. I cannot stand to say NO to a hungry cat. The first stray had kittens and of course when it was time to wean them Puffy brought them to me. I was able to borrow a drop trap from CG at the Catnetwork and carrying cages. She gave me instructions and I managed to trap 8 cats in about a 4 days and get them spayed and neutered. (Puffy, her 3 kittens, the neighbor cat, 2 odd males that were hanging around, and another female who was very skinny and saw me feeding them at the back steps.) Now I don't have to worry about an abundance of kittens in or around my yard or block, thanks to the Catnetwork. I had considered putting the kittens up for adoption thru this network (they offer advice and venues) but the kittens were so cute I kept them all. I have my own backyard colony. I have previously had volunteered at some of their events, and have adopted thru them but I didn't realize I would need their help one day. My cats have forever homes.

First, my own cat, MaddieCat was adopted from this organization. She was one of 3 black feral kittens that a member rescued and fostered till they all had homes.
Second, because they have (pressured and) partnered with Miami Dade Animal Services, they were able to convince the county commissioners to change it to a no kill shelter and which now offers FREE spaying and neutering of stray feral cats. They now support TNR efforts.
I used this service myself this January 2015. I trapped and fixed 6 neighborhood cats that I sometimes feed. I borrowed a drop trap and regular trap from the CatNetwork to take them to Animal Services. Thank Goodness for this organization for helping cats.

I first learned about the Cat Network in late 2011 when we were looking to adopt another cat after we lost our beloved Kitty.

We ended up adopting Yuri from Cindy Hewitt, who was his foster mom through the Cat Network. We learned that Yuri came from an extreme hoarding situation. Despite the horrendous conditions he had to endure, Yuri has been an amazing cat, loves to fetch and be wherever we are at all times.

About 9 months later, while at PetSmart instantly fell in love with a black cat named Joey (Who now goes by Doodle Bug) that was up for adoption through a Cat Network foster mom. He was found in a parking lot as a small kitten and had to be trapped. He is a total love bug and loves to cuddle and eat wheat grass!

A year or so later, a feral cat had been coming to our back door for food. I noticed she was nursing. So, I did what I could to find her her kittens. I found them when they were about 3 weeks old. I was able to get them and the mama to a safe, secure location and Cindy helped me get them all checked out medically, vaccinated, wormed, treated for fleas, etc. I was able to get Mama spayed with the help of a Cat Network certificate at a participating vet's office. We ended up keeping two of the kittens from that litter, Harley an adorable tuxedo and Sammy, who is a solid black massive moose of a cat. We also found a nice forever home for Mama.

Then about a year or so later, as luck would have it, a tiny little kitten was eating bird seed off the ground under our feeders in pouring rain. The poor thing was scared of every little movement and starving to death. I started putting food and water out and contacted Cindy. She loaned me a trap and showed me how to operate it. I was successful in trapping the kitten and took her to Cindy where we got her all checked out. The little gal had us from the first day she was eating bird seed off the ground in the pouring rain, so we took her into our home as well.

We have since moved 3,500 miles from South Florida to Northern California with all of our fur babies, but I will always stay connected with Cindy and follow and contribute to Cat Network because they played such an important role in the lives of all of our cats.

If it wasn't for the Cat Network and Cindy, I don't know where these cats would have ended up. As it stands, all five of them have a wonderful life, are being extremely spoiled and I really can't imagine my life without all five of them. Through my experience with Cindy H. through the Cat Network I learned a lot about kittens, cats and TNR. Because of their work and Cindy's mentoring, my daughter and I are starting our own cat rescue/sanctuary and will be TNR advocates in our area!

Thank you Cat Network and thank you, Cindy!

As the organizer of an annual pet rescue festival in Southwest Florida I have depended on the Cat Network the past three years to help get the word out about our event. They have been more than generous when we have asked them to advertise our event free on their Facebook page, helping us to find homes for hundreds of homeless animals. They are just as responsible for those adoptions as we are. They are more than willing to help other groups when it comes to homeless animals. Thank you Cat Network.

South Florida is a tough place to live if you're an animal lover. The combination of warm weather, immigration from countries that don't promote animal welfare, politicians that are all about cutting taxes and the poverty that exists here despite the area's reputation as a playground of the rich and famous, creates a perfect storm in which stray animals have a tough life and one-time pets are often treated as disposable things that can be dumped once a kid is no longer interested or the family has to move. There are strays everywhere needing help. The Cat Network has for many years now been at the forefront of helping these animals by helping the people who feed them and try to provide medical care for them and try to find homes for those that are adoptable. The Cat Network board, the volunteers and the members of this wonderful organization are THE most dedicated people I have ever known. Many of them are out there on the streets of South Florida every day and night - often in the middle of the night - feeding strays and trapping them so they can be fixed. Every month they take hundreds of cats to local vets and shelters, taking advantage of certificates the Cat Network makes available, so the animals can be spayed/neuter at discounted prices. Members and volunteers and the board members in particular advocate tirelessly for homeless animals, going to meetings of local city and county governments and local home associations to promote TNR (trap-neuter-return). They do presentations to encourage businesses and communities where there are lots of homeless cats to start and maintain TNR programs. They partner with stores like Petsmart to show adoptable felines there and have volunteers go on a daily basis to clean the cages where the cats are kept and give them some play time. Members foster hundreds if not thousands of cats and kittens in their homes, getting them fixed and vaccinated and dewormed and then showing them at local venues to try to get them forever homes. The Cat Network has helped to improve the lives of SO many animals in South Florida and has helped and empowered the people who try to help these animals. It is one of the finest non-profit organizations I know, completely devoted to its mission.

Any non-profit organisation that saves the lives of animals is indeed a hero in their own right. I love the articles/posts that they share.

I love seeing all the stories on their facebook page and seeing all they do to help animals. They can't help themselves so they need people to help and these people are great at doing just that :-)

I LOVE THIS FB PAGE. THEY ARE WONDERFUL, CARING PEOPLE WHO TAKES CARE OF HUNDREDS OF CATS. IF NOT FOR THEM, HUNDREDS OF CATS WOULD BE DEAD.
