Nonprofit Overview

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

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 spayed and neutered over 125,000 cats since 2007! 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: In 2016 we spayed and neutered over 15,000 cats!

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 directly toward decreasing the number of unowned homeless cats though free and low-cost sterilization services at our clinic, along with TNR training and support.

Beautifully run organization! Highly skilled, compassionate spay and neuter clinic attending with care to the neediest population

Fixnation is a Godsend. We had 5 adults and a 7 newborns show up in our backyard. We decided to try to care for them as best we could. Fixnation was referred to us by the San Gabriel Valley Cat Rescue. After learning, through the Fixnation TNR program, we were able to catch and fix all the original cats plus 12 more for a total of 24 cats. We would have never been able to rescue these cats without the help of Fixnation and they would have ended up with Animal Control and probably euthanized. I can't say enough about Fixnation, a wonderful organization. In the years, and amount of cats, that I dealt with Fixnation, I never had any issues whatsoever. Very well managed organization. Thank you, Colleen Kinsman

My wife and I are "foster fail" parents of two adorable kittens, rescued from a truly horrible situation. We fell in love with those two little fur balls - Petunia and Prescott - and are committed to giving them the best possible care every step of the way. So when it came time to get them "fixed" (spayed/neutered), we researched numerous vets and clinics before deciding on FixNation.

Trust me when I tell you, we (and by "we" I mean Petunia and Prescott) hit the jackpot in terms of professionalism, bedside manner and overall amazing care. From start to finish—intake to pick-up—they run their facility like a well-oiled machine. Yet that didn't prevent them from treating us (and our furry little lovebugs) like VIPs, even though this was our first time there.

Dropping off your beloved pet at any hospital or clinic, no matter what the procedure (minor to major) is both unsettling and nerve wracking, but all the wonderful people at FixNation quickly put us at ease, and we knew - without question - that we had made the right choice in bringing our kitties there.

So when the time comes to get your kittens or your rescued ferals fixed, you'd be CRAZY to go anywhere else.

Thank you FixNation - you're awesome!

Sincerely,

A and T and Petunia and Prescott

I have helped fixed over 200 feral cats in the south east Los Angeles area and could have not done this without Fix Nation. They're the only resource feral cats have in Los Angeles, every other non-profit or clinic looks away from the feral cat population. Considering that the feral cats bring in thousands of kittens to shelters on a yearly basis. Non-altered cats are the root of the issue of the over populated and reason why we have high kill shelters in all of Southern California. The solution is to fix all feral/ non feral cats to reduce the high kill rate of feline population and Fix Nation is the only resource we have to helping cats . Thank you

I have been working with Fixnation for about 5 years now trying to make a difference with the very large feral cat population in Los Angeles. I have trapped 70 + cats and fostered numerous kittens. The staff is friendly and caring. It’s nice to walk in and have them call me by my name. Armando and Michelle are a pleasure to work with. A great organization making a difference.

Let me start by saying how overwhelmed I was with the growing cat population happening in my neighborhood. Although I tried to rescue and adopt out as many kittens as possible, it was a never ending battle. I had to get the colony spayed and neutered, but knew I would never be able to afford it through a private vet. I found fixation through a cat rescue and finally found hope. Michelle at the front desk was very patient with my questions and helped me set up appointments to pickup traps and schedule appointments for spaying. Monique explained to me how to work the traps and the best method for catching. Armando was always there, positive and upbeat with a friendly smile, explaining how the surgery went. All the cats also received a rabies shot and a flea treatment. I was able to release the cats back into the neighborhood and it's comforting to see that they are all healthy and doing great. I really appreciate all the help provided through this great organization!

I'm writing this review because I feel relieved that I actually trapped, neutered and returned a feral Mama and all 6 of her feral kittens to my backyard!! I could NOT have done it without the amazing people at FixNation. From the first phone call, to the video showing you exactly how to trap a cat, to the encouraging words when I picked up the traps and all through the 15 day process of catching all 7 cats. But those were just encouraging words...it doesn't even cover the surgeons, anesthesiologists, assistants and office staff who fix, flea treat, vaccinate, and administer rabies shots to these babies and take good care of them for free. Each one making a difference. It was awesome. I am so grateful that my backyard community will not grow further. Thank you to each and every person at FixNation.

What a blessing FixNation is to the community cats and their caretakers and pet cats and their owners in Los Angeles County! Because FixNation exists, thousands of felines, who would have perpetuated an endless cycle of litters, will no longer do that. Instead, they will be able to concentrate on keeping themselves alive and healthy.
I have seen this in action in my own neighborhood. I have taken dozens of cats there over the years. I have trapped them, and they have been health checked, vaccinated, and fixed at this worthy nonprofit, and then I rerelease them back where they came from. I have seen the cats in the colony I care for become healthier because the males do not fight for females and territory and the females are not constantly pregnant.
Additionally, owned cats can have the same benefits at a greatly reduced rate so pet owners can afford to break the cycle of unwanted kittens.
I appreciate the work FixNation does on behalf of the homeless and pet cats of the county.

I rescued two little feral kittens and fixnation made it possible for me to get them spayed, shots and microchip for a fraction of the cost it would normally have cost. While there, I saw a number of people bringing in a LOT of trapped ferals for the free spay/neuter. Everyone there treated every cat with respect. I was honestly impressed.

I have been involved in animal rescue and advocacy for the past 20 + years. During this time I have been a witness to thousands of companion animals ending up in the “shelters” because they didn’t have a home. I have always been an advocate for the underdog and learned early on that ironically, cats are the underdogs of the companion animal world. The number of homeless cats far outweighs dogs and the number of homeless cats living in the streets of Los Angeles is heartbreaking. Spay & Neuter is where it all begins and where it can end! FixNation understands this better than anyone and is committed and dedicated to reducing the population of the homeless cats of LA and surrounding areas. Their model is so brilliant that it has been taught to and employed by other animal welfare groups both locally and internationally. They walk the walk and talk the talk. It is an absolute honor to be a part of this stellar organization.

After getting to know the founder of FixNation and seeing firsthand the passion she has for cats and for the clinic's spay/neuter mission, I can honestly say this is my new favourite charity. The love and care Karn Myers and her clinic staff provide to homeless cats is inspiring and humbling...the world needs more people like this, kind souls striving to make the world a better and more compassionate place. FixNation is making a difference!

I think this organization is a wonder! They helped me TNR a mother cat in my yard and I was able to get the kitties all vaccinated and placed. I would not have been able to do that without them and they probably all would have ended up in a shelter and most likely killed. The staff is kind and helpful and go out of their way to make sure all your questions are answered. Please donate and spread the word!

I take all my foster kittens here to be spayed and neutered. It's fantastic and they always come home to make a full recovery. The fact that they are fixing all homeless cats that are brought in is unbelievable! Trapping, fixing, and releasing homeless cats back into their environment is the very best chance we have of reducing the homeless cat population. Fix Nation is making that happen.

Feral cats tend to wander on to the property where I live because we have a really nice garden setting. And since we are such a nice group of neighbors, we end up feeding the cats. Then we trap them, take them to Fixnation, and all is well.

Thank you FixNation for providing the educational materials, the traps and the low-cost/free fixing program. Life is so much better with fixed cats. :-)

This place is AMAZING. They were patient as I bumbled my attempts to rescue some kittens (due mostly to me not knowing about FixNation until after I let the cats out into my bathroom).

Their services are so important in helping feral cat populations throughout the city. The TNR method not only stops breeding but they vaccinate and such too so that the cats do not spread illnesses.

I hope word keeps spreading about this wonderful group and people truly understand the importance of fixing animals to keep them out of overcrowded and underfunded shelters.

Henri is one of five homeless cats that I've had fixed thus far at FixNation. I was new to TNR the first time, but everyone at the clinic is a pro and they provided free training and loaned me a trap and gave me step by step instructions that were extremely detailed and helpful for a newbie trapper. (I learned, for example, that if all else fails, Kentucky Fried Chicken is practically irresistible trap bait for cats!) Everything went smoothly with the first cats I trapped, so much so that I was inspired to do more and have since gone on to become a passionate advocate for spay/neuter. FixNation was founded by cat lovers and everyone who works there or serves on its Board is genuinely dedicated to the clinic's mission. Because of FixNation, I am more motivated than ever to help make the world a better and more compassionate place for homeless cats. And my former feral Henri is doing great and is now in the process of transitioning into a pampered and much loved indoor cat.

I could not be more impressed by this clinic -- super organized, expertly and efficiently run, clean, friendly and compassionate staff and volunteers. It is very likely the the most well-run charity I have ever encountered, and that's coming from someone with a background in the nonprofit sector. I recently took in 3 community cats who live in my back garden and things could not have gone more smoothly. What a wonderful service they are providing the community and our furry feline friends. i plan to be a supporter henceforth in whatever way i can.

FixNation save my sanity!! I have been so stressful about the feral mom cat kept having babies for years, the neighbors constant complains, and my mom’s nonstop nagging, etc. Finally I took some time off from work and use fixnation free spray services for feral cats to fix the problem!! At first I was stressed and worried...all kind of what ifs went through my minds.. i was afraid the mom cat would get hurt or the baby would got trap in the process or wat if my mom went crazy and dont let me put the cat inside the house once it got trap, etc. Anyway...luckly FixNation has steps by steps dummy guide & procedures helping me to trap the cat to easy my worries and anxious abt the whole things. 1st I took their online course for 1 hr, and answered few questions after completion, then email them for appointment, to pick up the trap, then trap the cat, brought her inside...brought her in for surgery on the following day w/ appointment, then picked her up the same day!!! All done smoothly, it’s because people there are so helpful and their instructions are so clear!!! The hardest part for me was hearing the cat cried constantly nonstop at night, the mom cat crying inside the house, and the kitten (which i couldnt catch her yet) crying for her mom outside the house...really loud. People couldnt sleep straight for these 2 nights, I had to sit in the bathroom w/ her to make the mom cat quiet, I had little sleep too and lucky I didnt have to work on the wks. Finally day 3, afer the surgery and constant crying, the mom cat was released outside and reunion with her baby!!! The whole thing made me feel like a single mom with several babies and struggle to take care of them while working, lol. Its impossible for me to do so without organization like FixNation helps. I think im not gonna feed any additional feral cats again unless I have the house and time for it, or maybe when I retire. So much time, energy, effort, n responsibility, lol. I had made small tiny bit donation and I will make another donation later this year. Please support their great service for the love of cats!! Thank you FixNation!!!

I could not manage without Fixnation. We here in LA are so lucky to have this amazing free resource. It encourages me to to keep going, to trap for other people, to trap every week and try and make a difference for homeless cats. The staff are lovely and knowledgeable and helpful. I think I've taken in over 700 cats since they first opened. I mainly take ferals into Fixnation but whenever I have taken kittens off the street and tamed them, these also go in through Fixnation. Their prices are so reasonable for companion animals. Here are two that I trapped in hills full of coyotes and they got fixed, tested, microchipped etc at Fixnation and then my friend adopted them.

Before Fixnation I was trapping cats in my local neighbourhood and getting them fixed with my vet. I was paying for this myself and so was limited in the amount of TNR I could do. Also the cats were just getting fixed, they weren't having shots, being flea treated, de-wormed, given fluids or any of the extra treatment that Fixnation provides. I cannot thank Fixnation enough for what they do. I feel compelled to do more as a citizen, because they provide this wonderful service, I feel I should do more and I do. In 2010 I trapped 24 cats at one location. I recently handed over the paperwork to the homeowner - 80% of the cats were females and it hit home how much this one colony would have grown if it had not been for Fixnation. I cannot rate Fixnation highly enough and my trapping friends and I regularly say - "How did we ever manage before Fixnation".

I had been looking everywhere to get my male kitty neutered and was coming up empty-handed at every turn. So many places advertise free or low-cost services, but the fine print would tell a different story: only for feral cats, city residents only, no appointments available, etc, etc.
I was becoming frustrated in the fact that I wanted to do the right thing, but no one was making it easy to actually accomplish anything.

Then, simply by chance, I stumbled upon FixNation.

They answered my email promptly! They scheduled an appointment for my kitty to be neutered in one week! They provided all kinds of additional services (completely optional) at the time of drop-off! Their facilities were clean, organized, and filled with people who clearly cared about animal welfare. But the best part was that the surgery would only cost $40!!

I picked Mr. Socks up around 4:00 that same afternoon. While dispappointed about his missing accessories, he was in good spirits and seeemed to have come through like a champ. Thank you, FixNation! You made it easy for a single mom to afford to take care of her cat and her wallet at the same time!

P.S. While I was there, about 10 kittens were brought in by people who had trapped them in order to get them sterilized. This breaks my heart and reminds me how important it is to spread the word about responsible pet ownership. They all need homes. :(

It starts with one!

The single most lifesaving thing anyone can do to save cats AND kittens is spay/neuter. LA is home to an estimated 3 million stray and homeless cats, and a single female cat can have up to 3 litter per year, meaning 12-16 unwanted kittens.

If shelters had glass walls, everyone would be supporting spay/neuter, but in LA finding low cost and FREE services for stray and pet cats is an insurmountable challenge.

FixNation is the ONLY nonprofit in LA that will fix every cat that comes through it's doors in a trap for FREE. There are no restrictions, the kitties receive superior medical care, and the staff does a fantastic job at meeting the demand of people who travel sometimes hundreds of miles, just to take responsibility for homeless animals and make sure they're not adding to our already over crowded shelters and streets.

Do we need FixNation to expand, and open more locations to meet the demand, YES. High quality, free and low cost spay/neuter is real rescue and fixing cats directly impacts our shelters, neighborhoods by preventing kittens from being killed at a shelter, or a life on the street.

I sincerely hope you'll support FixNation and maybe someday instead of focusing solely on adoptions, we'll get to the root of the problem, save lives and become "FIX" Nation!

Back in early 2016, I noticed that our neighborhood started having random cats loitering the walls and yards. I've lived at my place for 20 years and that sight just broke my heart a little. Well, a lot.

I started googling. Reading. Asking around. Walked in to my local humane society and they were unphased. They blatantly said that they'll loan me a trap for a fee and I'll need to pay for all clinical services rendered. If I refuse, they'll end up putting down the cats that I bring in. Grrrrr~

Just as I was about to give up, I found an article about Fix Nation! I was glued to their informative site. Read it forward and backwards! Learned the true meaning of human compassion through the practice of trap-neuter-return. Immediately, I signed up for their TNR training course and voila, I was skipping out of their office with a trap, instructions, confidence, and most importantly, lots of hope and optimism for the feral kitties in my hood.

FN is truly one of its kind in LA County. It doesn't pretend to be sassy. It's practical. It's resourceful. And most of all, it's working! TNR works and there is still a long way to go to help share the success stories... even globally!

Thank you to the front end staff and all of the clinical teams that make this world a less cruel place for the cats on the streets. Fight on!

I brought my cat in when I noticed that she was in heat and all these other cats were coming around the house just stalking her; I felt like the father of a teenage girl. Haha. The crew at FixNation was very helpful, especially the two girls at the front and Mando the guy who helped me fill out the forms. They all took the time to explain the process to me as well as the things I needed to do to care for my cat after the surgery.

Now my cat is all good; check her out!

FixNation is my Hero. They helped me trap, neuter, and return a dozen feral cats which began with a starving and pregnant black cat whose recent capture brought us to a zero growth colony. FixNation's ultra-humane program and caring staff are exactly what nonprofit services should be. Thank you FixNation.
Here's the story:
My partner walked into the house nearly in tears for a bone-skinny black cat in the middle of the street munching on a tossed piece of pizza. I moved the street-treat to a safer location as she warily watched and then returned to it. We put out some nutritious food and she became a snarling, lurking, hissing, fang and claw baring denizen of our back yard. We enjoyed watching her thrive and resigned ourselves that she was not likely to become friendly. At least our feral freeloader never became friendly with us as she bore an annual litter for three years (4m + 3m1f + 3f). Each year, with the support of FixNation, we trapped, neutered, and returned the kittens but only this year with the innovation of a drop-trap did we capture Momma and achieve a Zero Growth Feral Colony.

We've enjoyed observing, learning, and writing about our feral felines. We have suffered loss as only one of the original litter of 4 males remains, Nanna, the one dedicated to Momma, not a wanderer like its mates. Two of the second litter, Tawny and BigBiff, are tame to touch and BigBiff enjoys brief cuddling. We lost Fluffy from the second litter this summer and Feisty, the Alpha wannabe, was run off by the other adults who are sometimes seen ambushing the outcast when he comes around. The final litter of three ring-tailed females is a story in progress. One, LilBiff is shaping to being touched while the other two, Grey1 and Grey2, have their mother's wariness. After being fixed two weeks ago, Momma is much more relaxed and it will be interesting to see if she remains small or gets larger. In all there is an intact, familial, feral colony of 7 healthy cats that cannot breed more. We and the community get to enjoy their charm, antics, and beauty. There's Momma, Nanna, BigBiff, Tawny, LilBiff, Grey1, Grey2 with Feisty around but no longer in the colony. With FixNation, we've stopped seven males and four females from breeding, littering, and multiplying into many times their number.

We also have two cats in the house who go into the yard at times to eat grass or lay in the sun. The grey one in the image is RT for ring-tail. She's 7 years old and staked her territory early with the first litter and Momma. The ferals give them their space as they do for the occasional interloping opossum or raccoon; however, low flying and crawling critters are food.

All of this is made possible because FixNation is part of my community.

I love cats and am not afraid to say it even though a cat gave me my first scar at the age of four and it is still brightly visible on my left hand just behind the index knuckle. My bad for reaching for a kitten in the nest on the third level hayloft of our barn.

I've been blessed with a few wonderful souls masquerading as cats over the years and now have two rescued house cats. Recently a black feral mother gave birth to four kittens under my house and then took up residence in my backyard. While searching how to manage the situation I found FixNation and decided to take a chance on them. I couldn't be happier.

Being a prior service U.S. Marine, I know engagement, professionalism, and efficiency when I encounter it and that description fits FixNation to a T. Skeptical at first, I found friendly and engaged people providing support with care and concern underlined by efficiency. That makes FixNation the hands-down best organization I have ever dealt with. FixNation is a clockwork operation doing exactly what it professes to do. I appreciate that and encourage their support.

We, my husband and I, love cats but we are only going to have so many in the house (rescued from the backyard)...

However, we still feed a community of about 14 in the yard - some that are there all the time and some that just come by for meals and to play. We have dog houses with heaters, blankets, climbing trees, toys - it is a virtual playground and home for them - and they are fun to watch...

Again, however - the colony was growing and enough is enough... so I found FixNation and thank goodness we did!

The organization is great - the procedure of watching the videos and going through the training prior to being able to pick up the traps is exactly what everyone should go through in order to be humane to the cats during what is probably a very traumatic experience for them (being caged, being away from their colony, having surgery, etc.).

They are professional, quick, thorough, friendly, and accommodating to your needs.

I donate money each other the times I have brought cats in - have trapped and fixed 8 now... and still a few more to do.

The cats all return to the colony and fit right back in... and actually seem to get along better than before because there is no competition now.

Highly recommend their services and their mission!

Fixnation is indispensable! Los Angeles has so many stray cats who's only barrier to a loving indoor home is the cost of spay / neuter.

This organization is amazing & I wish I found it earlier. My neighborhood has an overpopulation of feral cats & a few have made my backyard their home. One momma kitty has decided my yard is where she dumps her kittens after she's done weaning them. The first batch of kittens didn't stay very long (1 was run over & the other 2 just disappeared). When she dumped off the 2nd batch, I was determined to get these ones fixed. After calling several vets, I found out they either don't fix feral cats, or it would be around $200 or more to fix one. Then I found Fixnation online. After filling out an online application, & taking a brief online test, I was able to borrow 3 traps & set an appointment to take all 3 kittens in at once. Everyone at Fixnation was very helpful & my appointment went smoothly. All 3 cats are now fixed & have their shots, & the best part was this was done for free! Batch 3 was just dumped off last week, and my next step is to trap the momma & these kittens & hopefully get some control over my neighborhood cat population with the wonderful help of Fixnation.

Fixnation is the best source for helping give homeless cats the best life they can have out on the streets. I donate annually and more often when I can.

This is the first time I've personally brought in a stray cat for TNR. They took wonderful care of her.

The neighborhood cat population in my neighborhood was growing rapidly after a mild winter with some extra rain, so I needed help...helping.
Fixnation is a great educational source on why Trap Neuter and Release is the humane but also most successful option for dealing with feral population.
Their website and learning materials are thorough, easy to understand und professional; taught me everything I needed to know and everything I should.
Their staff is friendly, helpful, well organized and thorough. The process is well thought out and they set up tools (eg an online course and a video to teach you how to trap) to streamline the process.
I got to borrow 3 humane cat traps plus covers (to keep the cats calm and comfortable) free of charge.
I trapped the cats and took them in. They were great, treated them and when I picked them up they were fine.
The day I was there they treated about 120 cats, all thanks to donations with no help from the city (kinda embarrassing for Los Angeles).
That equals roughly 6 million cats that they took off the streets in just one day. Pretty impressive!
I donated today and I hope others will as well because they are doing a good thing - in a good way.

I am not a 'cat person' but when a mama cat & her kittens decided to hang out around our property, I knew I had to do something. I didn't want the cats to be caught by the pound & killed so I did some research & found FixNation. I was given clear instructions on the trap, neuter and release (TNR) process and was able to use their traps for free by simply putting down a deposit. The website also provides a lot of information about why TNR is the best way to control the feral cat population. FixNation is an excellent organization. They are very organized; the staff is knowledgable and friendly; and they are providing an important service to the community.

The growing homeless cat population in my neighborhood was getting out of control and I knew something needed to be done. After a little research, I found Fixnation. What an awesome place! They gave me the training needed to safely trap the cats and they took care of the rest. They provide such a needed service to the homeless cats in Los Angeles county. Thank you Fixnation!

Thank you FixNation for offering such a valuable service. I spied a momma cat and three little kittens living on the side of my house and the kittens in my garage. I phoned my go to gal/neighbor Chona who advised me what to do and she would make an appt for mommakitty. I followed her instructions on feeding so when the trap was placed, mommakitty would be there at the feeding trough. She set the trap, mommakitty and one kitty were there. We walked into the house, I turned on my security camera. Lo and behold the kitty had already sprung the trap! Found out it was a she, 2.5 pounds, and she is now nuetered. Next will be mommakitty when another appt can be made. Thank you for doing this valuable service to our community.

Fix Nation has allowed me to spay and neuter 154 cats. They loaned me traps and taught me how to trap safely and how to care for the animals. We had a growing homeless cat population in our neighborhood. I also helped several other friends in their neighborhoods. It is rewarding to see the cats healthy and the population not growing. I have not had any more litters in almost two years thanks to fix nation.They are professional and truly care about the work they do. They are fantastic.

Thanks to the wonderful people at FixNation, and assisted by Best Friends Animal Society, I was able to have 12 of my feral cats/kittens spayed and neutered. They were so kind and caring to my cats and me. They gave my furry babies good medical care, the shots they needed, and also defleaed them! I needed assistance in catching my ferals and the combination of FixNation and Best Friends Animal Society helped me greatly! I am on a very tight budget and FixNation has helped my feline family to now live healthful lives. They are a blessing! Thank you so much!

They are highly organized, good at calling back and confirming appointments. Basic services are free. No bureaucratic restriction. Make procedure easy and informative, give out humane traps. They personally care about animals : cats and humans and most importantly are pragmatic. They spay , neuter , micro chip and offer vaccines including rabies.

Let me explain why i say so..

Late last year I moved to city of Hawaiian gardens, and my new home came equipped with 6 feral cats , 2 adults, 3 kittens and the queen already pregnant with new litter.

To make long story short: i looked into shelter, they were all full and with a euthanization rate of 40% . To make matters worse there are no government vouchers available for feral/stray cats in the city of Hawaiian gardens. The city has a high feral or stray cats population. They fight for food and territory very aggressively causing trouble to feline and humans.

Two months of scouting for the vouchers or organization to get them fixed only one responded: FIx Nation. With traffic it is a long drive for me, so i looked closer and had no luck.

I made appointment with them they were quick to respond with the details on what needs to be done. i had previously asked around to rent out a trap and went with them . first they are free with a refundable deposit and their traps are large enough to catch a Tom cat, without any harm to the rescue. There was an introductory walks you threw the process and you just show up and rest is done.

Because of FIX Nation the cats are safer, and the little children in the area who chase the cats around are safer as well.

If it weren't for this organization, I wouldn't be able to help with the overpopulation of cats in the neighborhood. The local humane societies are completely outrageous prices for TNR and unrealistic for the income of the area. Thanks to FixNation I was education on feral and community cats, trained on trapping and the resources I needed were provided. They are very systematic and there are rules that need to be adhered to. If you adhere to their procedures, it is beyond worth it!

Five years ago, a stray, neighborhood cat had a litter of the best kittens any cat owner could ever ask for. I found them all homes (including my own) and needed to get the mom and another much older kitten of hers fixed. When I brought them in for their appointment, I was shocked at the amount of cats that were being brought in and that this was just in one hour of one day. From that day forward if I was going to support any organization, it was going to be FixNation.

I have a large amount of feral cats living by my home. TNR is really the best solution for them since this is their home. FixNation is great at serving members of the community who want to make a difference. I've grown close with the cats I've had fixed by them and they now live fat happy lives with no more homeless litters!

Thanks to FixNation 5 adorable kittens born to a stray, as well as their mom` have found loving homes. Thanks to FixNation's low cost spay and neuter program, I was able to cover the cost of spaying, neutering and vaccinations, so the cats did not end up in a shelter. The service I received was above and beyond what I had expected. The staff returned my emails promptly, everyone I dealt with was helpful and caring. I'm currently participating in the TNR program they offer (completely free of charge!). I hope they will be around forever, because they really make a tremendous difference in our communities.

My experience with FixNation.org is that of a client turned volunteer. I was hooked after my first initial experience of taking 4 local strays from my neighborhood to them to get spayed and neutered. Everything from the in's and outs of trapping to the post op pick up was carried out with the utmost professionalism. Since then, I have had the pleasure of getting to know the staff. Their devotion and love of cats is inspiring. FixNation.org is doing their part to rectify the staggering number of homeless cats in LA and I am proud to say I know them!

FixNation has helped me control the feral cat population at my fathers home. I'm not sure what I would have done without their help. This is a great organization and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

i have been TNRing feral cats for years helping so many people in and around my community. Fixnation has made a HUGE difference in helping us spay and neuter so many pets and feral cats. The animals received top notch care while at their facility. We NEED more facilities like Fixnation to address the feral cat population to control their numbers by spaying and neutering and NOT by killing them in shelters. We need more Fixnation establishments in poor areas to address the people that want to help but lack the transportation and education about spay and neuter of their pets and community cats.

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!
