MEOW is amazing! They truly care about the kitties they rescue and the adoptive families. I support MEOW in many ways including as a donor and past volunteer and have since 1999. I have also had the joy of bringing a number of rescued MEOW kitties into my family.
When a pregnant stray kitty showed up on our doorstep in Tacoma, they were the only ones who actually answered their phone and my questions. I felt absolutely confident that this sweet stray kitty would not only have the best care for the rest of her pregnancy, but that she would be given every opportunity to find a furever home as well. Thank you, MEOW, for caring for these babies as much as we do.
The volunteers and staff at MEOW are incredibly kind, dedicated, and invested to making sure that their animals have the best lives possible. We adopted two a bonded pair who, despite offers to adopt one of the two, MEOW had refused to separate. One of them also had chronic health issues, and MEOW was not only upfront and informative about his issues, but had been taking him to a specialist to make sure that he got the care he needed. It was an amazing adoption experience, and I strongly recommend MEOW to all of my acquaintances in WA who are looking to adopt.
MEOW is one of the most caring, dedicated and professional rescues in Washington. They do amazing work with homeless cats and kittens and I have nothing but pure admiration for their work. Well respected by other rescues in the area, they continue year after year to demonstrate compassion both to animals and to the humans in their community.
This group is amazing. Their dedication to the cats is incredible. I can't say enough good things about their collaborations with other groups for the betterment of cats. I feel so grateful to know and work along side these dedicated individuals.
I think MEOW is an amazing non profit shelter. I have only been volunteering there now for about 6 months, but my family has been a part of MEOW for awhile. All of our current cats, ranging from ages 3 to about 8 have all been adopted from there, as well as, family friends of our have been fosters for them for some time now.
I appreciate everything MEOW does, in the sense that they truly love what they do, helping the cats and dogs of the area find homes, but also helping the people of the community find good fits. All of the cats that come through the shelter are, of course, wonderful, no matter the personality. I love what they are doing and what they continue to do and I love helping out in whatever way I am able to.
I was a foster for a shelter in TN and had take in 3 kittens who turned out to be FeLV positive. After contacting dozens of rescues to try to place them, Bonnie at MEOW Cat Rescue was the only one who called me. MEOW could not take the kittens, but she gave me advice on placing them, made suggestions, and used her contacts. Because of her, they were placed at Best Friends. She gave me hope and helped me when she could have just turned me down. She showed real compassion and is truly there to help the animals. I have great respect for Bonnie and MEOW Cat Rescue. I wish I lived nearby so I could foster for them.
I was introduced to this organization when I starting looking for a canine companion for my Shar-Pei. I adopted Sampson from the canine side of this organization. They were very through before they would adopt out this special boy...Including a home visit to ensure he would be safe. Years later, when Sampson crossed the rainbow bridge, I didn't hesitate to contact them again to adopt my next fur child. And that is also whe I became interested in fostering the homeless fur kids until they could find their forever homes.
None of the dogs that are adopted from the canine side are housed in shelters...They are all fostered in family homes where their personalities, behaviors and temperaments are evaluated in a real situation and we are able to place the right dogs in the right homes.
All dogs are vet checked and any problems corrected prior to going to their forever home.
MEOW does a great job of matching adopters to pets
I adopted my cat, Leo, from MEOW in January. The adoption counselors and other volunteers at MEOW were all wonderful! The shelter is clean and smells good. The cats are all comfortable, and as a no-kill shelter, the cats have all the time they need to find their ideal home! They followed up with me to see how things were going with the new cat. They offered plenty of helpful advice regarding integrating Leo into my existing multi-cat home. All around, they provide a very positive atmosphere for both the cats and the public.
