Cat kindness initiative
& cat desexing program
for Geelong Cats.
Where our paws firmly stand
Project Meow is 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.
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

We would love your help.
Every cat we de-sex has a positive impact way down the line. It aids the health of the cat, gives the owner peace of mind and potentially assists our local animal rescue & animal welfare organisation intake numbers & resources leaving them free to care for the cats already in care rather than being flooded with the preventable ones.
Preventing life by desexing is responsible humane animal control.
Every cat deserves the essential care required for good health. Vaccinations & Desexing
Responsible pet ownership is not optional .
UH OH YOU HAVE KITTENS
We have a purrfect solution!
FREE DESEXING FOR THE PARENTS OF THE KITTENS
This program sees all kittens are taken into care within our trusted network. They remain in care until vet work is completed and are at a safe vaccination status to go into their forever home.
If you or any one you know would like one of the kittens they can be adopted . Each group in our network may have different adoption processes & adoption fees may vary BUT THEY ALL INCLUDE THE ESSENTIALS.
Adoptions are by application to the group that have them.
AN ADOPTION FEE IS A SMART COST EFFECTIVE HEALTH CARE PLAN FOR YOUR CAT
If someone can not afford an adoption fee then perhaps it is not a good time for them to take on this responsibility. 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 occurring.
All kittens are so vulnerable to disease & viruses. Kittens can start breeding from 4 months of age.
Cats are indiscriminate breeders and WILL BREED WITH FAMILY OR SIBBLINGS.
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
VET FEES for essential requirements would be approx $500 - $700 Clinics will vary
NOTHING BEATS AN ADOPTION FEE
Part of owning a cat is owning the responsibility for their health & wellbeing
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.
We also secure litters born to facilitate a positive pathway to a beautiful home once they receive the essential vet care for a healthy happy start in life. See our Kitten Club Program.
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 de-sexing procedure for your cat a CRN number will be required
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 cover their vaccinations. We can send info on the vac packages.
If you work we can still help. We just need you to contribute something to the cost OR take the opportunity of these great rates.
We also ask you share our cause with family & friends.
DESEXING IS SO IMPORTANT to prevent unnecessary litters AND 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
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.
