The Community Cat Coalition Inc. support carers of community/stray cats in Auckland. Our biggest focus is community cat de-sexing.
The Community Cat Coalition Inc. supports the carers of Auckland's community cats (stray cats, abandoned cats, 'street' cats, semi-owned cats). Our name reflects the services we provide to the community through the humane management of stray cats, and the fact that the cats we care for are a community responsibility.
Our particular focus is de-sexing, because this is fundamental to preventing unmanageable numbers of kittens and cats. It's also essential to allow community cats to lead healthy lives, unburdened by the demands of constant reproduction or reproductive drive. The work we do contributes humanely and sustainably to biodiversity goals relating to managing cat populations.
The more funds we can raise, the more community cats we can help by de-sexing.

It's kitten season!!! 27 September 2020
It’s spring and the Community Cat Coalition is being besieged with requests for help with stray female cats on heat attracting unneutered male cats, stray pregnant cats and stray cats desperately trying to care for the kittens they’ve given birth to, under whatever shelter they’ve been able to find. We focus on prevention – getting as many stray (or ‘community’) cats as possible de-sexed before they re-produce this season.
But COVID has significantly reduced the money CCC has for de-sexing this year, meaning that more unwanted, often sickly kittens will be born, and face a very uncertain future.
So Bob Kerridge, founder of the Community Cat Coalition and past CEO of the SPCA, asks you to consider donating whatever you can spare, whenever you can, over the next little while, so that we can make this much needed de-sexing happen as soon as possible.
Bob: "The lives of cats are priceless and very precious, so how do you calculate a value for each one? The Community Cat Coalition works tirelessly every week to care for stray and abandoned cats in Auckland and they need your help to carry on."
Thanks Kerry, that's very kind of you, and very useful in terms of helping the cats!
