FixNation's mission is to reduce the population of homeless cats by sterilizing as many as possible while demonstrating the effectiveness of Trap-Neuter-Return and colony management for the humane care of homeless cats.

FixNation became the first, full-time spay-neuter facility in Los Angeles in 2007, providing comprehensive Trap-Neuter-Return support including free spay/neuter services for homeless cats, Trap-Neuter-Return outreach and education, as well as affordable care for companion cats, and partnerships to facilitate adoptions. FixNation is a model for Trap-Neuter-Return and cat population management across the country. Since opening its doors in 2007, FixNation has sterilized 115,000 cats in addition to its Catnippers program.
