Desexing for cats living in Geelong
About us & what we do
Where our paws firmly stand
WE ARE A CAT KINDNESS INITIATIVE who is passionate about the welfare of cats in our community.
WE ARE A CAT DESEXING PROGRAM for cats who live in the City of Greater Geelong.
WE ARE NOT A REGULAR RESCUE GROUP however we do know some really reputable ones we work with!
WE ARE NOT AN ADOPTION SERVICE we leave that up to the rescue groups or organizations we are networked with.
IF YOU HAVE A CAT NURSING KITTENS OR PREGANANT you need to check out our kitten club program.
We are 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. Our goal is to help the cats have access to desexing procedures. These cats are with families or owners that are doing it tough. Each case is treated individually and we may need to prioritize , we may ask if you hold a healthcare card or on a pension. You can apply for full assistance or pay part of the cost and we can cover the rest.
Our Kitten Club program is to support nursing mums and their kittens. To prevent Mums n bubs being left vulnerable in the community or perhaps even in their own home. It is to give kittens a chance of survival by offering care to ensure nutritional needs are met and they have an environment that is safe & stress free to rest in, recover, nurture & grow. From here they are placed with one of our trusted networks for the adoption process. We prepare them for their big stage performance in an adoption environment. We keep them safe. The Mums may be with them or sadly sometimes they are not. Taking young kittens in to our care means they will get a strong chance to survive and to grow as nature intended. Their needs are many and without good nutrition and safe practices their very fragile little lives are at risk. We also can help with support for nursing mums at home who sign up for this program.
WE ARE NOW A REGISTERED CHARITY ! We have some exciting things coming very soon so keep checking in on us and watch our social media pages.
There are not many easy answers or easy implemented plans on improving animal welfare in our community but this program is certainly A KEY place to start. Desexing saves lives in more ways than you can likely imagine.
To the all who support us a huge thank you to you & also the public for continued help when we ask for it.
To Dr Jon O'Connor, Nurse Sharon, Nurse Cassie, Nurse Lucy, Nurse Casey & the amazing veterinary team at Aberdeen Veterinary Clinic for believing in this cat kindness initiative as much as we 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. Our determination to improve lives for animals comes from the inspiration these people have given & share. I am so grateful for a brilliant network of incredible people at Geelong Animal Rescue, Geelong Animal Welfare & Sunny Days Rescue & Rehab who have been a huge inspiration & support to this program.
