What is Give Miami Day?

Give Miami Day is a unique, online giving event where individuals can make a charitable gift to a local nonprofit. Every donation between $25 and $10,000 will be eligible for a bonus match from The Miami Foundation. For gifts greater than $10,000, the first $10,000 will be considered for a bonus match.

Why support The Cat Network?

When the pandemic hit South Florida in March 2020, many clinics, humane societies, shelters and rescues shut down which allowed the community cat population to explode. Without trap/neuter/return surgeries being performed, many litters of kittens were being born. The Miami Meow Mobile, the mobile surgical clinic run by The Cat Network, was unable to be used because of its small operating space that would not allow safe social distancing.

The Meow Mobile team of veterinary technicians and lead veterinarian came up with a plan to safely perform surgeries while still maintaining COVID 19 safety protocols. The Meow Mobile is housed in a large warehouse space so the team designed a clinic that would use the van only for surgeries and recovery, while using the rest of the warehouse space to set up prep stations. Feline patient check-in and check-out would be done outside in the parking lot with guidelines and signage to keep clients 6 or more feet apart while humans would be required to wear masks according to COVID 19 requirements. On May 17 the Meow Mobile resumed spay/neuter surgeries and through the end of July, 556 cats and kittens have been sterilized and vaccinated.

Now, we need your help to continue our work. We have set a Give Miami Day fundraising goal of $20,000 which will help us sterilize almost 350 cats.

This yeah Give Miami Day is a four day event. Early Giving will take place from November 16 at 12 a.m. through November 18 at 11:59 p.m., until the start of Give Miami Day on November 19.

Please help us help the cats. We are asking for your support on this endeavor. You can make the donation below or direct on the Give Miami Day web site starting 12:01 AM EST on Monday, November 16, 2020.

Thank you from the bottom of our paws.
