free, bi-monthly spay-neuter clinics in partnership with our sister
program, Best Friends Catnippers.
Program Long-Term Success:
Our organization was founded to bring
together all of the known, effective TNR resources, and offer them as one,
complete package to the community on a high-volume, high quality basis. These
resources include a dedicated facility, 2-full time veterinarians specializing
in high-volume sterilization surgery, a trained technical staff, hundreds of
traps to loan out, a front-office staff capable of training the public on TNR,
trapping, after-care, etc., and a team dedicated to raising public awareness,
doing public education and engaging in community outreach on a consistent
This massive array of resources has been
extraordinarily successful and effective. In just over 4 years, FixNation has
sterilized over 50,000 cats. In
2010 alone, we fixed nearly 17,000 homeless cats, thereby preventing hundreds
of thousands more from coming into the population. These efforts have stabilized countless numbers of stray cat
colonies, and caused FixNation to become a major resource for the community.
Program Short-Term Success:
In 2010, we examined 18,583 cats, and sterilized
and gave medical attention to 16,829 of them. 14,839 of these were stray or feral
cats. The work prevented the needless suffering of countless homeless cats, and
greatly relieved the burden on shelters.
Program Success Monitored by:
Our results are
measured by complete and transparent reporting of all performance results,
tracking colonies, and shelter intake activity.
