Trapping and spaying one cat saves thousands of births of homeless kittens. What we do is PROACTIVE and works towards the SOLVE the problem of overpopulation of free-roaming cats.

  • Shifts usually run 9:45am until noonish. You may leave sooner or later depending on the number of cats but we're usually done before noon.
  • Occasional afternoons are open depending on the cats' feeding schedule.

We schedule per month. Times vary, you can sign up for as few or as many Sundays as you'd like. No experience necessary, we'll teach you!

About The Meow Mission

Location:

2915 E Mishawaka Avenue, South Bend, IN 46615, 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.
