Detailed Information

Cat Defence Network is a not-for-profit organisation established in 1996 with the primary mission of facilitating the desexing of cats at discounted prices. Based in Sydney, the network extends its services to rural areas of New South Wales, aiming to assist both owned and homeless cats. The organisation does not take cats into care but focuses solely on desexing to prevent the overpopulation of these beloved creatures.

Originally founded by a dedicated group of individuals in the early 90s, Cat Defence Network evolved into an incorporated association in 1996. Over the years, the organisation has shifted its focus back to its core mission of desexing cats, discontinuing the practice of taking cats into care to ensure a more sustainable approach. Committed to responsible pet ownership, the network advocates for the well-being of all cats, providing essential veterinary care and promoting love and attention for these animals.

With a significant increase in desexing activities, Cat Defence Network facilitated the desexing of 439 cats during the 2022-2023 financial year. Through the generous support of members and donors, the organisation continues to make a positive impact in the community by promoting the welfare of cats and striving to reduce the number of unwanted litters. Cat Defence Network remains dedicated to its mission of desexing cats and creating a safer and healthier environment for feline companions.
