More than any other rescue or shelter I've ever seen, MEOW truly does whatever it takes to support and keep these animals healthy. Additionally, they also help rescue DOGS! MEOW is hands down the most caring and loving animal rescue organization I have ever witnessed.
MEOW is a member of the Community Cat Coalition and they work very hard with people who do rescue work with our community cats to help them place kittens and social cats that are trapped in feral colonies. I've found their leadership, staff, and volunteers to be very caring and willing to go above and beyond to help all of the cats and kittens that come to be in their care.
This is a great shelter. I have been there few times.
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.
May I say that it is so heartwarming to see what Meow Cat rescue (k9 division) shows me day in and day out what can be done to save the lives of voiceless animals. I'm truly amazed at the effort, compassion, commitment, love, and the organizing of travel and medical appointments for those in need. I see first hand on what these rescuers and volunteers do to correct horrific wrongs that are done to animals. With so much abuse ,neglect, and barbaric acts towards animals I say thank you and God bless you for all that you do to give these animals care, love, respect , a new life and forever homes. I bow down to all associated with Mercer Island Eastside Orphans & Waifs . Paws up on so many levels !!!!!!! Wag on
My elderly cats passed away and I have visited the MEOW Cat Rescue's shelter several times recently. The shelter is always clean and the cats appear healthy and well-cared for. The staff and volunteers I've encountered are always pleasant, smiling and appear to genuinely care for the kittens and cats in their care. Some of the cats are "seniors" or have special medical needs and they get to stay there as long as necessary until they find their new human(s). Some of the special needs cats have been taken in by MEOW from other shelters. I think that demonstrates their commitment to their cause! I will definitely adopt from them when done grieving my fur buddies.
I have worked in the rescue world as an independent rescuer for over 10 years, and in all that time I've never heard a bad word about MEOW. This organization has stayed true to their mission, and genuinely care about each and every individual cat. 3 years ago I was part of a group that formed the Community Cat Coalition, a group dedicated to promoting spay/neuter and assistance for the community cats, as well as help for the people who care for these cats. MEOW joined us from day one, and has been very supportive. I simply appreciate they put their money where their mouth is - they truly care, and truly reach out to help whenever possible. - Nancy Wahl
I've adopted two cats from MEOW. I've found them to care for the animals they serve, to be loving even when it is difficult to care for a scared angry animal. Their facility is excellent and their staff helpful. I was so impressed that I also donate to keep them going. This is a top flight facility!
i spoke to someone on the phone regarding my problem cats and they saifd the only place that could help me was seattle animal shelter. the woman was rude and not helpful what-so-ever. i was so dissappointed as i am looking for a no kill shelter. to be brushed off and told i don't care and don't know how to handle animals is terrible. i have spent the last two years trying to reform two "problem" cats that have no health problems but have destroyed my house my clothes my furniture my carpets, everything. and i have have spent so much money oon relaxation products and to be told that i don't care is terrible.
I have been a long-time MEOW donor for years with good reason - they are a very professional organization that cares immensely for their animals and the people around them. I have adopted two cats from them (one very recently) and have been ecstatic both times. They do a great job ensuring you are prepared to receive your new family member, and are great with matching you to your perfect companion based on their personality system. I also love the newsletter. Three thumbs up for MEOW! I will keep going back.
