ORGANIZATION: The Meow Mission

  • 3 people are interested

We are in need of a take-charge person to initiate and manage our three annual events:

February - Purses for Purrs Designer Purse Auction
April - Trivia Night
October - Alleys for Alley Cats Bowling & Polish Dinner


We need a manager to get the ball rolling on our events and keep us on-task. We have fantastic volunteers, we just need someone to provide direction.

Since 2011, we have neutered over 9,500 community cats. This prevents the births of hundreds of thousands of homeless kittens. The work we do is imperative to lowering the free-roaming cat population as well as significantly improving their lives. We are an all volunteer nonprofit. We rely on donations, events, and grants to help community cats and we need YOUR help!

If you can write grants, great! If you can't, there are other things you can do as well as manage events:

  • Approach local businesses for give-backs
  • Contact community foundations
  • Arrange volunteer days (many businesses donate to non-profits when their employees volunteer)
  • Network
You need to be a minimum of 21 years old and live in the greater South Bend, Indiana area.


You need to have initiative and be diplomatic and encourage our volunteers to be the best they can be.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone with these skills to make a significant impact on fundraising for Meow Mission.

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.
