We need more funds urgently so that we can continue our de-sexing work before the next kitten season!
As most of you know CCC volunteers work non-stop through the year desexing stray and abandoned cats to stop them breeding, and help prevent kittens being left to starve on the street.
These are not 'feral' cats, they originate from domestic cats who have been abandoned or dumped by their owners and have produced more kittens which have been born wild.
The Community Cat Coalition supports these volunteers by subsidising the cost of the desexing.
The volunteers’ costs are already huge as we have to pay for flea/worm treatments, any additional vet treatment and medication needed, and petrol.
If we didn’t have the support of the Cat Coalition to help with the surgery costs this would be unmanageable for most of us.
In the last 9 months we have desexed around 1250 cats, preventing thousands of unwanted kittens being born to a life of misery on the streets. We have also rescued hundreds of kittens from the street and rehomed them to loving families
Sadly, our funding has now run out and we have to stop trapping. This is heart-breaking for us. We spend hundreds of hours trying to get on top of the problem and if we can’t keep going, the females who have not yet been caught, will once again produce more kittens taking us back to the numbers of cats we started with.
We are continually trying to fundraise but have no funding secured at the moment.
If you would like to support our work we would be very grateful if you could make a small donation.
The Community Cat Coalition Inc. supports carers of Auckland's community cats (stray cats, street cats, abandoned cats, semi-owned cats). Our big focus is community cat de-sexing, then ongoing care.
All money raised will be spent on de-sexing. We have the capacity to de-sex many more community cats over the next few critical months and are limited only by funds. Our members are very experienced and skilled in this work.
Fundraiser extension 23 July 2020
Hi everyone, thank you all so much again for your kind donations to this page over the past couple of months, which have made a real difference! Unfortunately, the desexing grant which we usually receive from the SPCA at this time of year has this year been drastically reduced due to COVID. So we are very much hoping that you will share this fundraiser with your friends and contacts - we would love to get a lot more desexing done before the spring kitten season begins in earnest.
Thank you very much Charlene! Your donation really helps!
Melanie, thank you very much for this generous donation!

Thank you, very much appreciated.
Thank you Sue, this is very kind of you.
