Review for Cat Network, Inc., Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

The CATNETWORK has worked to reduce the feral cat population with TNR. they have rescued and found homes for thousand of the abandon cats left at our Animal Services (the pound), shopping centers, empty lots etc. I love the idea of the MEOW MOBILE. It is a specially outfitted van that is a clinic. This enables them to go into many different neighborhoods to provide the low cost spay/neuter services, where vet service may not be in existance. Additonally, the weekend shows which they bring cats to be adopted helped me to adopt my current black cat.Both the Animal Shelter and Our local no kill shelter are both in the north end of our county only.We are in pet food stores on Miami Beach, and the western and southern areas or our large county.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

by adopting a cat from one of their shows.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting other caring cat lovers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

knowledgeable about cat matters such as health, behavior and working within our local laws.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy another Meow Mobile and purchase air time on radio shows or newspaper ads geared to the local neighborhoods.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  Volunteer & I assist at the weekend shows at Petsmart. I answer questions regarding the cats that the foster MOMS are showing that day. I have distributed posters with our Meow Mobile schedule at my office and a few grocery stores.
