Nonprofit Overview

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

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.

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.

The Cat Network stepped in a few years ago to help my friend find a home for a "feral" cat. Plus, they spay and neuter and that's one of the most important things to do to help stop the killing.

The Cat Network is an amazing group of volunteers! They offer low cost spay and neuter surgeries and even have a mobile clinic called "The Meow Mobile", in Miami and Miami Beach. They help mentor people with TNR (trap, neuter, return) to help with the huge problem of pet overpopulation here in Miami. There are so many homeless cats living on the streets of Miami and The Cat Network is truly one of the top non-profit groups, here in Miami, that actually helps people to help homeless, sick, and injured cats.

The Cat Network is a wonderful group. I enjoy all their updates, and information on cats, articles, social networking with others that care about issues concerning cats. It is really a great group and they are in touch with the community on an astounding level on a daily basis. Help is at hand on nearly any cat related issue, and I'm so glad to have them handy to help and guide from time to time. Further, they do great work in supporting spay/neuter which ultimately saves so very many lives. I applaud the Cat Network, and I refer people to them on a very regular basis.

This organization has been of great help to the community, helping cats and teaching people to help cats! They offer low cost spay/neuter, vaccines, microchipping, helping strays, pets, increasing public awareness of pet overpopulation. I have seen cats up for adoption at The Dog Bar, Petsmart, and Petco in Miami through their organization. All the cats they adopt out are up to date on vaccines, FIV/Leuk tested, dewormed, treated for fleas and spayed or neutered. A wonderful group to adopt a cat from.

The Cat Network has been a wonderful resource for me when looking for low-cost spay/neuter options for both my own cats and stray/feral kitties. They are working hard to lower the euthanasia numbers at the pound and to control the feral/stray cat population of Miami-Dade County. They are saving the lives of countless kitties here!

All of my encounters with The Cat Network have involved online contact, as I don't live in the S. Florida area. After a Kitten I rescued last year gave birth, I started to question organizations concerning their placement. Finding varied answers, some and lacking believability, I took my quest for answers online. I've a background in marketing I wanted to know how not for profit animal rescue organizations were working the internet to fund their efforts. Particularly those with an interest in the no-kill philosophy. I followed The Cat Network for over half a year. They have been very aggressive about seeking grants and other funds on the internet, and providing feedback to people who want to know how the funding is used. Many organizations don't use the internet as a communication and fund raising tool. Their ability to communicate their goals and raise funds online has been very impressive. Also, their costs to the public for services is much lower than in my area of Florida.

This organization is very proactive in many communities in providing free or low cost spaying and neutering, therefore saving and preventing the suffering and death of thousands of animals. I have personally benefited, as well as many people I know.

When I first learned about Cat Network, I felt so happy cause there are people like them who cares so much about cats even to those who are just wandering on the streets. Not just that, they also reach out for the pet owners who can't afford spay and neuter. It feels great to support this charity. I myself will try my best to help them with their mission.

The Cat Network is devoted to the welfare of cats by trapping, spay/neuter, and release feral cats. I have known them for the last 15 years when visiting pet stores where they try to get kitties adopted. Their project of spaying/neuter 5,000 cats in the area of Miami Beach is worth a lot of merit. It is quite sad to see how cats are abandoned by their owners to fend by themselves without water or food. Kitties born to feral cats sometimes die of hunger or under a car. I just wish people were more conscious and responsible pet owners.

Over the many years, Cat Network had made extreme strides with Stray & Feral cats. Their work has found many cats a safe and happy home not to mention the vast number, thru their TNR program, of cats spray & neutered. They are a wonderful non profit organization with unstoppable members who love their cause and keep meowing along.
