Our Impact

In the past few years, Kitty City Inc./ The Pet Compassion Centers has provided funding for over 10,000 spays and neuters in the Mid-South. In 2021, we provided over 2,766 spay and neuter surgeries, 2,497 of those surgeries were performed in our facility along with 57 specialty surgical procedures.

This is has drastically reduced the number of homeless cats in our community, the associated suffering and MILLIONS of dollars of costs over the next ten years.

What makes us different from other rescues is that we are focused on saving taxpayer dollars by preventing cats from entering shelters in the first place. In 2014, 63 % of all cats that were taken to Memphis Animal Services were euthanized. In 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 Memphis Animal Services did not euthanize any healthy cats. Equally important is that area shelters that we support no longer have to euthanize healthy cats.
