I am a senior citizen in Washingtonville and have called Jodie numerous times when there is a cat in need of rescue in the area where I live. Earlier in the year I fell and broke my hip, Jodie has been there to help me with my own aging Kitty whom I had for many years. When I could not get to the store, Jodie brought cat food to me. When Kitty started having urinary problems Jodie helped me get Kitty to the Dr. She even came by with a steam cleaner and cleaned the urine stains on the rug! O.C. SAFE CATS is much more that a cat rescue, Jodie really goes above and beyond for the cats AND their humans, she is so compassionate and is such an asset to the community. Sadly Kitty crossed the Rainbow Bridge, I am not ready for another cat just yet but when I am I will certainly call on Jodie to help me find the perfect companion. Anyone who is considering donating to OC SAFE CATS can rest assured the donation will be put toward a great cause.
Jodi is wonderful. We adopted from her before and received the best little gift . She does wonders and gives so many cats/kittens a second chance. She goes above and beyond to rescue cats and also to make sure ferral cats are neutered/spayed and releases so the cat population doesn't keep growing. She provides food, shelter, vaccines and other vet services for these cats and kittens that may have not made it. I would give more than 5 stars but 5 is the highest I could put here.
Jodie is knowledgable and professional—and a tireless advocate for the cats. Her efforts are invaluable to this community!

OC Safe Cats is an organization that I hold near and dear to my heart, not only because of its mission to TNR and/or find safe, loving homes for the feral cats in Washingtonville, NY (of which there are many!) but because the owner of this wonderful organization, Jodie Lo Meli, treats each kitten and cat like they are the most important thing in the world. I have so much respect and admiration for the fact that Jodie has single-handedly done all that she has over the past several years, without funding, a "commercial location" (e.g. adoption center) or volunteers to help her. She works tirelessly to give each and every cat in need that she comes across the safety and care that they deserve. Her application for adoption is exemplary because it commands that only people who will give a cat or kitten the most loving home are able to adopt from her. She is a hero to the feral cats in our town, as no matter what the situation, she never turns away a kitty in need of her help.
We were looking to adopt a cat and were lucky to hear about Jodie and her wonderful organization. Brooke is now a beloved member of our family. We can not thank her enough for all of the amazing work she does.
Jody is wonderful and loves all animals! I highly recommend her!!
O.C. SAFE CATS, Inc. is a wonderful organization. I have called on them several times. They always return calls and are all about helping cats. The community is fortunate to have them.
I had the pleasure and working with Jodi, She is a very dedicated President of a 501(C)3 Feral, Abandoned, and Stray cat rescue. She is a firm believer in TNRV for ferals, and socializing kittens so they will be able to find loving forever homes.
Great rescue. No kill philosophy. EVERY CAT MATTERS! Advocates for TNVR and assists and educates community on importance of TNVR.
There could not possibly be a more committed person or organization with regard to animal welfare and care. Can not recommend highly enough!
