The Meow Mission

The Barn Cat Program is a life-saving initiative that pulls cats that aren't suitable for a traditional home adoption and places them in qualified barn homes. Our program is very busy and we can use some help - you'll be doing thing like delivering cats to their new homes, picking them up from animal control, making site visits and picking up equipment. We can provide a vehicle for your use and full training will be available.

There are no shifts, you volunteer for certain tasks and complete them on your schedule so it's a flexible position. We communicate predominantly via email and facebook. Must be able to lift and carry 25#.

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.
