We strive to promote the highest quality of life for the animals under our care by providing housing, rehabilitation, socialization, and adoption services. Once an animal is under our care we will euthanize only in cases of extreme illness or aggression. In pursuit of our mission, we are committed to providing a center for housing, rehabilitation, education, and adoption services.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Pet overpopulation is a problem both locally and nationally. There are too many pets and not enough homes to keep them all safe. Our efforts are aimed at helping local pets in need by: providing a safe place for displaced pets to stay while they await adoption, ensuring that all pets that come into our care are sterilized before adoption and unable to further contribute to pet overpopulation, partnering with local farms to sterilize outdoor cats so that they do not contribute to our local felines overpopulation. Our efforts to help pets on a national level are reflected in our transportation programs. Our local area doesn't often have smaller dogs or specific breeds that adopters are looking for. We team up with high-kill areas and work to bring animals in need to meet adopters that have been waiting for them. We make sure that all animals are healthy before coming to us and that they get a second veterinary check before being introduced to our local community.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Adoption

Animals brought into our adoption center are matched with families across North America. As long as the forever family is the perfect fit for their new furry family member, we do not have geographic adoption restrictions.

Population(s) Served

Catkins takes in animals regardless of age, special needs or medical condition. All animals that come in get any necessary medical work including: age appropriate vaccinations, appropriate blood tests, sterilization, deworming, and microchipping.  

Any additional medical concerns that are discovered by the animal's attending veterinarian are addressed. This includes but is not limited to: broken bones, HW treatment, ringworm, allergies, etc.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to help reduce the deaths of unwanted pets, and to complete families by matching pets in need with homes that need a furry family member. We also work with local law enforcement to help reunite missing pets with their families.

There are three types of pet populations in our area that we focus on: owned pets that need to be re-homed by their families, working cats that are loosely affiliated with various farming communities in our area, and lost, abandoned, or abused animals that fall under the jurisdiction of the county humane officer.

To help these animals, we have partnered with our humane officer to provide housing and care for all displaced animals that are brought in through the animal control program. Both the humane officer and Catkins work to reunite lost pets with families that may be missing them. In the event that an animal has been abandoned, a family cannot be found, or an owner has been convicted of an animal crime, the animals in need go up for adoption through our adoption program. All of these animals receive appropriate medical care before adoption.

Our Ferals to Farms program works to help farmers in our community sterilize the cats that are currently on their farms. This helps prevent future generations of unwanted kittens. We also partner with farmers looking to expand their working cat population by bringing sterilized feral cats to their properties from area in which they are unwanted.

We maintain an active controlled intake owner surrender program. We are space limited, but take in owner surrender pets in need from families as space is opened up through adoptions or families willing to foster. Our area tends to struggle with cats needing placement and in 2020 we assisted 195 owner surrender cats.

At this time, our organization is able to meet the needs of the lost, abandoned, and abused local animal population that is brought in by the county humane officer. We are also able to quickly assist dogs that local families need help re-homing and dogs from high-kill areas across the country.

Our controlled intake of cats, allows us to help many of the locally owned cats that can no longer stay with their families, but our space and funding for care still currently prevents us from helping all the cats we receive calls about.

Our working cat program has more than doubled from 2018 to 2020, but we will be applying for additional funding in 2021 to expand this program and prevent further unwanted births (which should help address a large number of the owner surrender calls we receive).

Every successive year we are able to help more animals through our adoption programs and our working cats program. In 2020 we provided care for 380 cats and provided 186 cat spays/neuters. We also provided care for 153 dogs and provided 52 canine spay/neuters.

Our goal is to reach a time when we can have an open intake program that doesn't require families who are looking to rehome their pet to wait until we have space to house that pet. We want to not only be able to meet the demand for the housing needs of locally displaced pets, but to also assist high-kill areas of the nation.
