Project Cat Snip: Sterilize 3,000 Homeless Cats to Reduce Cat Over-Population

THE STORY:

Miami Beach has a long history of stray cats beginning in 1912 when cats were brought to the beach to fight the rat problem. Unfortunately, human intervention went awry and the cats were left to breed uncontrollably. Many of the cats live under or in abandoned/foreclosed buildings and continue to breed year round due to the warm South Florida weather. In order to break this cycle, we want to sterilize 3,000 homeless cats by offering spay days every month in a project called Project Cat Snip (formally Miami Beach 3000). Every cat sterilized reduces the number of homeless cats and the number of stray cats turned into local high-kill shelters. That’s a tall order to fill, so we need YOUR help:

1. If you live on the Beach, contact us to report a colony of stray cats. info@thecatnetwork.org
2. If you enjoy hunting adventures, join us in cat trapping expeditions. NOTE: we advocate TNR (Trap/Neuter/Return), meaning all the cats we trap will be returned to their original location sterilized, eartipped for identification and rabies-vaccinated.
3. DONATE

* TIME: We want to offer these surgeries for as low a cost as possible, even FREE. But we cannot do it without your help. If you are a veterinarian, veterinary student or veterinary technician; donate some hours working in the comfort of our state of the art spay/neuter vans.
* SPACE: We need air conditioned space, like a large room 30 ft x 30 ft or larger to house the cats after trapping and after surgery in the areas where we are concentrating our trapping efforts. We promise to clean up afterwards!
* MONEY: On average It costs us approximately $40.00 per cat to sterilize and vaccinate. All cats receive antibiotics, pain medication and a rabies vaccine. Since we are an all volunteer organization we rely on donations to fund our efforts to help homeless cats. We are currently seeking to raise money to help defray the cost of the spay days. Anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated.
* PUBLICITY: Get the word out there! Donate radio and television PSAs. Come out and film us for social media publicity. Put an ad in the local newspapers.

Remember, as Alley Cat Allies says, “Cats Outdoors. It's a fact of life. It doesn't have to be a sad fact.” Cat Lovers and Cat Haters unite! Together we can reduce the population of stray cats on Miami Beach while at the same time giving them quality of life and the dignity they deserve.

Thank you for helping to reduce cat over-population and save lives!
