Cat kindness initiative
& cat desexing program
for Geelong Cats.
DESEX JULY COMING SOON!
Where our paws firmly stand
Project Meow is a local cat kindness initiative.
WE ARE NOT A RESCUE GROUP OR AN ADOPTION SERVICE,
WE ARE CAT DESEXING PROGRAM FOR CATS LIVING IN THE CITY OF GREATER GEELONG.
Since our founding in 2018, we have been determined to make an impact on our local Geelong cats by offering a desexing program that is funded by the amazing people in our community.
Everything depends on the funds we have available so our constant need to have people like you helping us out is vital to keep this cat kindness initiative & cat desexing program goal growing.
Our target people are the ones doing it tough or hold a healthcare card or on a pension. You can apply for full assistance or you can chip in for part of the cost and we can cover the rest. We offer add on microchipping & now insist on vaccinations which we offer 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.
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. Kittens never need be given away free ever again. We will take them all to ensure they are placed in the best care to see their adoption process through .
Please note we are not yet a not for profit organisation. That process is in motion. Until then the desexing MUST go on. We have some exciting things coming very soon so keep checking in on us and watch our social media pages.
Special Thanks to Dr Jon O'Connor, Nurse Sharon, Nurse Cassie & Nurse Lucy & the amazing veterinary team at Aberdeen Veterinary Clinic for believing in this cat kindness initiative as much as I do.
A huge amount of respect & thanks to everyone working tirelessly in this very emotional area of animal rescue & welfare across our district. Until you have worked in this area you never really fully understand. My determination to improve life for cats comes from the inspiration these people have given me. I am so grateful for a brilliant network of incredible people at Geelong Animal Rescue & Geelong Animal Welfare who have been a huge to support to this program.
There are not many easy answers or easy implemented plans on improving animal welfare in our community but this program is certainly a jolly good start.
Kind regards with warm purrs n meows

Cats lives are changed
from your kindness
OUR DESEXING PROGRAM
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.
Providing de-sexing opportunaties to all cats in the City of Greater Geelong like yours is our focus however, we can only do the work our funds allow.
OUR SIMPLE CRITERIA
You must live within the City of Greater Geelong
You will need to provide photo I.D with your address.
To receive full funding for a desexing procedure for your cat a CRN number will be required, pension card, you must be out of work or experiencing real hardship. Our fundraising does not come easy & we may ask you contribute a little.
You MUST be the owner of the cat.
Microchipping will be encouraged at a cost of $40 and we can not stress enough how important this is. A MICROCHIP GIVES YOUR CAT A VOICE.
Vaccination discounts for cats being desexed via our program. If we commit to desexing your cat all we ask is you SERIOUSLY CONSIDER covering their vaccinations.
Kittens must be vaccinated please understand that. We will send info on the vacciantion packages. Your cat relys on your care & part of that responsibilty is providing essential vet health care including protecting them with vaccinations.
If you work we can still help. We can offer you the opportunity of these great rates.
We also ask you share our cause with family & friends.
DESEXING obviously prevents unnecessary litters of kittens BUT it also has HUGE BENEFITS for the health of the cat. 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.
DESEXING IS RESPONSIBLE & KIND
THE INEVITABLE IS PREVENTABLE
Every cat deserves the essential care required for good health.
Desexing - Microchip - Vaccinations - Flea & worming
ALL THE ABOVE SAVES LIVES.
Responsible pet ownership is not optional & sacrifices may need be made to accommodate your pets needs. They can not do it without you.
So love them & love them completely.
UH OH YOU HAVE KITTENS
We have a purrfect solution!
FREE DESEXING FOR THE MOTHER CAT
This program sees ALL of the kittens are taken into care within our trusted network. The ENTIRE LITTER is to be surrendered to us & in turn we arrange that Mumma Cat never has to do it again. The kittens remain in care until vet work is completed and are at a safe vaccination status to go into their forever home VIA an adoption process.
Each group in our network may have different adoption processes & adoption fees may vary BUT THEY ALL INCLUDE THE ESSENTIALS & THEY ALL TAKE THIS VERY SERIOUSLY. Adoptions are by application to the group that have them.
If someone can not afford an adoption fee then perhaps it is not a good time for them to take on this responsibility.
AN ADOPTION FEE IS A SMART COST EFFECTIVE HEALTH CARE PLAN FOR THE KITTENS!
PLEASE do not give any kittens away for free. WE WILL COME AND PICK THEM UP.
Free kittens are the ones most at risk of never getting their vet work completed or desexing even occurring.
All kittens are so vulnerable to disease & viruses. Did you know Kittens & Cats are indiscriminate breeders and WILL BREED WITH FAMILY OR SIBBLINGS FROM JUST 4 MONTHS OLD.
THEY ARE RELYING ON YOU
ADOPTION FEES vs Vet FEES
DEPENDING ON THE ORGANISATION ADOPTION FEES CAN VARY FROM $200 - $300
AN ADOPTION FEE INCLUDES
A vet check
Flea & worm treatment
Your free kitten or purchased kitten with no essential vet work done will be expensive.
The VET FEES for the essential requirements above could reach $500 - $700
Vet Clinics will vary.
NOTHING BEATS AN ADOPTION FEE
