The Meow Mission

Located in River Park, Casa Meow is our home base. We have three resident cats, Twilight, LB, and Murray. Twilight and Murray are super friendly and absolutely love to be petted and brushed. LB, short for "Lonesome Boy" also a senior, is a very sensitive guy who requires patience and gentle attention.

We need one-two individuals available weekday mornings to check in on the cats, feed them, scoop their litter boxes and provide them with some love.

You can come anytime between 7am and noon, and volunteer as many or as few days as you'd like. You must be reliable - the cats depend on us and we can't let them down.

About The Meow Mission

Location:

PO Box 192, Mishawaka, IN 46544, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to: 1) humanely and proactively reduce the free-roaming cat population of northwestern Indiana/southwestern Michigan 2) eliminate the barriers free-roaming cat caretakers encounter with spaying and neutering colony cats 3) educate the community on the merits and methods of trap/neuter/return practices

Description

Michiana faces a problem most communities face - an overpopulation of free-roaming cats. A significant amount of these cats are tame, discarded pets. Feeling compassion, many families (referred to as "colony caretakers") feed these community cats. Unfortunately, a great deal of the cats are found in low-income neighborhoods. Without our intervention, these cats will continue to breed, overwhelming our city’s residents and animal control in a never-ending cycle. With your help, we are able to reach out to these kind-hearted citizens and offer them the financial support needed to spay and neuter our community’s discarded and free-roaming cats.
