Cat Network is a great organization helping cats by educating people on TNR, low cost spaying and neutering, etc.
My Dad has neutered and spayed many cats that are constantly dumped at his home by people. He is retired and a low income elderly man so Cat Network has been a blessing for him and the many cats he helps.
I am a member of The Cat Network and have read and witnessed the great that this group does for the cats in the community. They work tirelessly to TNR the cats in the greater Miami-Dade area and to educate the public on the benefits of TNR not to mention the fostering and adoption program that they continue to work on. I see all of the volunteering and work they put into the adoption weekends at my local Petsmart and the difference they make for our feline friends looking for a permanent home.
I first adopted my baby after my first was gone. I had a second kitty and he was actually depressed at the loss of his buddy. My Vet encouraged me to adopt a kitten. I did. From the cat network. He was rescued from a golf course and was bottle fed. I fell in love with him and that was that. I adopted two more from the cat network since. I love them all.
The Cat Network, Inc., is an amazing organization. When I found my first kitty-baby, I did not know what to do. I had never had a cat before. I did not have much money and I could not find anybody to adopt the kitty. A friend told me about the Cat Network and how she was very happy with the services provided to her when she found her cat. I was also able to use their services and keep the kitty. A few years later I used their service again. I now can't image my life without them. Organizations like this one, are very important to communities. Especially for people who can't afford expensive vet services. The Cat Network makes and incredible impact in our community.
I've taken my own pets to be spayed, including my pet rabbit. I have also taken stray cats that I have trapped to be spayed/neutered. You will find no other service in Miami like this one . The staff is always very nice and they made me feel lucky to have my kitty because all the nurses told me they were in love with my sweet little princess. They liked her so much that her pic is up here on the Great Nonprofits site :)
Thank God for the Cat Network. I have fixed many cats in my neighborhood with their low cost spay neuter certificates; I would not have afforded it without these. I have helped others get certificates and fix cats in their neighborhoods as well. Many people want to help but can only afford a limited amount, and CN makes even a small amount viable for helping the kitties.
Whenever I see one of these "fixed" kitties now, I feel good: he or she will have a better, healthier life, and there will be fewer starving, ill kitties out there. CN has helped me contribute something to help make the world a better place, and that is a wonderful feeling.
These wonderful people go out of their way to help homeless cats find forever homes. They foster the cats in their own homes and give them love, attention and a 2nd chance at life. They also help in other plights, such as finding lost cats and providing advice. I, myself, have been helped by this organization more than once. Kudos to The Cat Network!
Tha Cat Network does awesome work to save cats in South Florida. A great team of volunteers make this happing. The meow mobile is a great way to help reduce the stray cat population in areas were people can't afford to go to a vet.
I had been trying desperately to rescue a cat from Miami Dade Animal Services in Florida, but being that I live in New Jersey, this was proving to be extremely difficult. A friend told me to contact Cat Network, Inc. so I sent an e-mail and within the hour I had heard back from one of their volunteers. After a few exchanges, she agreed to pull the cat for me and foster him until I could make travel arrangements to get him to me here in Jersey. Her name was Megan and she was so kind. She rescued the cat and took him under her wing until I was able to arrange a flight for him. She took him to the veterinarian for a health certificate and purchased everything he needed to fly out to me. If it weren't for her, this little furball sleeping on my lap right now would not be here today. I can't imagine my life without him. I'm so grateful to Megan for fostering him and trusting me to follow through, and I think Cat Network Inc. is a wonderful organization!
I adopted a kitten from a Petsmart in Maryland back in 2006. Little did I realize her story at the time. I just found out this year (2011). The Cat Network, in conjunction with a rescue charity in Maryland, had just started that year to move large numbers of kittens out of the very high-kill shelters in Miami FL to the area up here, where they are more easily adopted out. They continue these marathon runs every spring, rescuing literally hundreds of kittens from certain death. They drive all night to minimize the time the kittens spend on the road. I am so honored to have one of the kittens from the first year's run that they ever did, and have been thrilled to watch the rescue efforts unfold this year- even recognizing some of the cats when they appeared in the adoption center by me.
I learned about the Cat Network from a friend when I found a young kitten in my back yard. I contacted the Network, became a member, and was able to spay the young kitten. The kitten ended up living inside my house and I have since worked with the Cat Network to spay and neuter other "feral" cats in my neighborhood. Thanks to the assistance from the Cat Network and their dedicated volunteers and staff members, the "feral" cats in Miami are living much happier and healtheir lives. Thanks for all their efforts!!!
