All About Meow Cat Rescue -- and SPOKESKITTIES!!

First of all, it is confirmed that we will have adorable spokeskitties at our event once again! Last year, we had 4 of the cutest kittens ever come visit us.

Now, here is some information about Meow Cat Rescue, the provider of said spokeskitties and the charity we are raising money for at this event.

Our Mission         
With respect and compassion for all animal life, MEOW promotes lifelong relationships between people and companion animals, providing shelter and care for each precious life until adopted into a forever home.

Our Vision         
MEOW envisions a day when society will be free from the dangers and nuisances of irresponsible pet ownership, when every pet born will be assured loving care all of its natural life and will never suffer due to abuse, neglect or ignorance.

Our History         
In the early 1990s, a small group of animal-loving friends made a commitment to create a better life for homeless animals. With little more than determination, they started Mercer Island Eastside Orphans & Waifs, now commonly known as MEOW Cat Rescue & Adoption, a non-profit organization with a no-holds-barred no-kill philosophy. MEOW continues to be staffed almost entirely by volunteers.

Our Goal         
MEOW 's goal is to help create a "no-kill nation", where people are responsible for their pets, where there are no helpless creatures abandoned in boxes or left to fend for themselves in parking lots, where there is no longer a need for any healthy companion animal to be euthanized.

MEOW places approximately 1000 animals into permanent homes each year. Our application process ensures that every adopted animal is placed in an environment where there is appropriate space, human contact, and a commitment to safeguard and care for the animal for its entire lifetime.  Newborn or senior, healthy, ill or injured, all are valued at MEOW. Each year MEOW is faced with the impossible and each and every day we recommit ourselves to something we truly believe in, the motto we adopted at our inception,”all nine lives are precious”.
