Cat kindness initiative

& cat desexing program 

 

About us

Where our paws firmly stand

Project Meow Geelong is achieving more with this initiative than ever before.  Our project is dedicated to our cat desexing program to help improve the lives of cats within our community.  We are very proud of the progress we continue to make.    

Here at Project Meow Geelong, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world for a cat in need & their human is a little support.  Since our founding in 2018, we have been determined to make an impact on our local cats by offering a desexing program that is funded by the amazing people in our community.   

Everything depends on the funds we have available of course so our constant need to have people like you helping us out is vital to keep this going. 


Our target people are the ones doing it tough or hold a healthcare card or on a pension.  You can apply for full desexing assistance or you can chip in for part of the cost and we can cover the rest.   We offer add on microchipping & vaccinations at great prices for our desexing clients.


If you work you can also apply to take advantage of the rates we pay.  We just want to see as many cats enter this program as possible.  

We are not a rescue group but we know some exceptional ones, we are not a shelter but we do have a good relationship at our local shelter.  We are not veterinarians or even vet nurses but wow we are lucky to have a great clinic in our corner doing our desexing procedures & supporting us.   The team at Project Meow Geelong are just people who see the problem so many ignore or feel it too big to tackle. 


This desexing program's main goal is to desex as many cats as we can & assist in improving the health & well-being of the adult cats involved . 

If you have a cat that has had kittens you need to check out our kitten club program.  We have a solution that will leave you kittenless with a desexed female cat never having to go through that ordeal again.

Enjoy the site and visit us on facebook.

Please note we are not yet a not for profit organisation.  That process is in motion.   Until then the desexing MUST go on.  


Special Thanks to Dr Jon O'Connor, Nurse Sharon, Nurse Cassie & Nurse Ashlee & the amazing veterinary team at Aberdeen Veterinary Clinic for believing in this cat kindness initiative as much as we do and to everyone working tirelessly in this very emotional area of animal rescue & welfare.  There are not many easy answers on improving animal welfare in our community but desexing is certainly one of them.

The things we do for cats

A small procedure does so much for the health & well-being of a cat.

OUR DESEXING PROGRAM

PREVENTING LIFE SAVES LIVES

With the help of our community contributing money to this program we are able to desex cats of low income homes or cats at risk living in Geelong.

The aim is to reduce accidental & unnecessary litters.  This positively impacts the intake numbers in shelters  & in rescue groups to assist in space being left available & valuable resources spared for other cats in need of care.  

Preventing litters is so important to the health of the young & adult cats.  Ovarian & testicular cancer risks are greatly reduced or eliminated.  Behavior, straying habits & the well being of the cat improves greatly when the stress of the need to breed fades away.  


Every animal welfare organisation in Geelong potentially benefits every time we desex a cat.  Every cat we desex benefits greatly from this procedure.  

If you can contribute just a little it really does go a long way.  100% of this money goes to the desexing procedure or care of a cat in need.  

There are no overheads, no wages to pay.   Just the vet bill and the odd food bill or flea treatment purchase. Everything else is donated or paid for by the founder. 


Females cost us $200     DESEX JULY OFFER  $135

Males cost us $100    DESEX JULY OFFER  $99

JULY IS THE MONTH WE PUSH HARD TO SEE

AS MANY CATS POSSIBLE JOIN THE DESEXED WAY OF LIFE.

To find out more email via the button below with details about you and your cat.  Be sure to include the cats, age, name & sex so we can send you both some info and an application form. 

Taking the step to see your cat is desexed is a highly responsible thing to do.   This one simple procedure has a massive long term impact that goes way down the line into the future.

 Donations &  Drop-Off Points

Reinforcing our Commitment

We are lucky to have the support of some great people and organisations.   

We do collect food for them and also for people struggling to feed their cat.   

It is important to us to see cats stay with their owners so a food bank or access to feeding assistance can be very helpful. 

Over kitten season food requirements are high.   

Please contact us first for a shopping list of what we need & the favorite brands we use so you are not wasting money on products that will likely not get used. 

We can then also give you collection & drop off options. 

Some weeks we may need flea treatments, we may need food, we may need bedding, we may just need to top up for desexing fees but no matter what we will always need you.   

You are a huge part of this & we are so grateful for your support.

Helping The Community Cat

With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for all cats in need. We are not a rescue group nor a shelter.   We do not take cats into care often so surrendering a cat to us is not an area we can always help with.  We rely on our network of help for this to see them land beautifully on all fours. 

Please note that by law any cat "found" must go to the local shelter so their owner has a chance to find them.  Some cats have been missing long periods of time and the shelter is their chance of a reunion.  Please do not rehome cats presumed abandoned or homeless as they may just me be surviving as they wait for their owners.

I have seen many happy reunions after long periods of time detached from their family.   If you have lost a cat or found a cat head to the local social media pages and put it our there.  Found cats can go to your local vet during business hours, Geelong Animal Emergency after hours to wait for a ranger to escort them to GAWS or take the cat straight to GAWS during business hours. 

A positive microchip check by council or at a clinic may get them straight home with no shelter required.   

If transporting them there is a problem call 03 5272 5272

and ask for the Animal Management Team

at City of Greater Geelong.

You can always put your name on the cat if it is not reclaimed but you MUST give the owner & cat a good chance. 

We can all do something, it does not have to be huge, the smallest acts of kindness have led to the best outcome for a cat in need.
