Operation Catnip

Operation Catnip’s life-saving work improves the lives of cats and the communities in which they live by spaying, neutering, and vaccinating free-roaming cats, preventing the births of kittens, mentoring other programs around the country, and training veterinarians to save America’s community cats.

Virtually everyone working in the field of feline welfare agrees that the number of cats born each year exceeds the number of homes available, and that targeted trap-neuter-return programs are vital to reduce the number of homeless cats.

Directed by veterinarians and carried out entirely by volunteers, including veterinary students, veterinary technicians, and cat lovers, Operation Catnip has sterilized more than 48,000 community cats in Gainesville since 1998.
