Meow village tests all ferals and if they test positive for fiv they have them euthanized. If one member doesn’t like a person, they won’t help anyone that the person refers to them. Basically showing it’s not all about cats, but ego.
Review from Guidestar
Meow Village helped relocate feral kitties from a dilapidated, abandoned house that was to be torn down to a barn that needed help with rodent control. The kitties settled in quite nicely and were able to eradicate the rodent problems in the barn area. The Meow Village group of volunteers is so wonderful to work with and always have the focus on what is best for the kitties. Feral kitties are not always easy to handle and the Meow Village volunteers are extremely knowledgeable and compassionate.
Meow Village and everyone involved with them are cat angels. They helped me in the summer of 2012 feed, trap and find new homes for a colony of 18 starving cats that a neighbor of mine abandoned at his home. I have been a volunteer with them since July 2012 - helping with the multitude of cats abandoned and dumped by uncaring people. Thank you Meow Village for all the cats you have saved from horrible situations or death. Thank you from me and that one special cat from the colony of 18 that came and found me to save the rest - my old man Mac.
I had been trying to care for a little striped feral 4-week old kitten I had found among a sick feral cat colony off the side of a highway (I couldn't find the rest of the litter)--yet I hadn't even a place to live for myself and my funds had been depleted. I had taken the kitten to a veternarian--and she was free from disease. Upon notifying MeowVillage, staff immediately stepped in and found a home for the little one and finished the vaccination series for her and made sure she got spayed. I was lucky she hadn't escaped in my car while I had to keep her in the car. I miss her terribly--but I have helped the little cat more than I would have imagined by having found MeowVillage to get her placed safely, spayed, and permanently cared for. Allison
Where to start?? These volunteers spend HOURS advocating for feral cats. They trap, spay/neuter, then return feral cats to colonies and then take care of them with daily feedings, shelter and water. This has then led to fostering and re-homing numerous dumped cats and kittens. Due to the generosity of all these people involved thousands of cats have been saved as well as found "furever" homes. This organization is 100% volunteer and all vet, food "AKA expenses" is paid totally out of pocket and with generous donations.
