Every week, we help spay/neuter anywhere from 20 - 40 cats. Most of the cat caretakers pick up their cats but sometimes we have to take them back to their colonies. We have a Meow Mobile (small van) available, we just need people to help transport.

The shift is relatively flexible. You can go anytime on Tuesdays after 12pm. We schedule per month and you can sign up for as few or as many shifts as you like. This is a great opportunity for buddies. Don't have a buddy? We'll partner you with someone.

You need to be able to lift and carry 15-20lbs (some kitties are fatties!). There's a tiny bit of paperwork - and a little bit of clean up. Usually takes about 2 hours, dependent on the number of cats.

You must be 18 years old and have a valid driver's license.

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.
