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.
The Cat Network is the BEST organization I have ever had the pleasure to Associate with! They brought me My biggest adoption blessings, SAFFRON my beautiful Flame Point Siamese is my love ❤️. He is so smart recognizes hand commands as well of verbal commands. You ask him for LOVE
I was very happy to rescue 3 cats from the Cat Network. The fosters make all the difference. These people are so dedicated and involved in the cat’s wellbeing. They genuinely care about these cats. It’s a pleasure being associated with such a stellar organization.
They are the best!!! I have a stray cat who suddenly came to my house backyard pregnant so I start feeding her and she stay. She went on labor on Friday and unfortunately one of the kittens got stuck and she was in very bad shape, luckily the cat mobile was the next day on my neighborhood so I went to ask them if they could help her, she was in a very bad shape we thought we were going to loose her, they took her in an did a c section saving her live, they stay with her till night (extra hours) saddly kittens didn't survive. But the mom is safe thanks to them. I call them angels, helping all the cats. They act from love!! Never gone stop thanking them for what they did.
The Cat Network continues to help residents spay and neuter their Community Cats. Their Meow Mobile is awesome!
I volunteered for The Cat Network for many years. They are a great group of volunteers who work to educate the community on the importance of spay/neuter. They volunteer their time doing TNR and finding homes for adoptable cats and kittens.
I have contacted the Cat Network on several occasions for help with the community cats in my neighborhood. They have always helped me. They have trained me in how to properly trap, neuter & release my community cats. With their guidance & assistance, we have spayed/neutered about 15 cats in the last few months. The Cat Network provides an invaluable service to our community.
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.
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!

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!!!
The Cat Network..can't say enough good stuff. They are the ones that help cats, no one else does. Everyone complains about the problem, but Cat Network does something about it, ot offers solutions!!
The first time I came across a homeless kitty I wasn't quite sure how to find it a home. I came across The Cat Network volunteers in a local PetSmart. They walked me through the process of becoming a member and joining the adoption referral program. Because of this program, I was able to place 6 kitties.
