Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: The Meow Mission

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.
Help us be part of the SOLUTION.

  • Trapping isn't difficult, it just takes patience. You'll be partnered up with an experienced trapper who will show you everything you need to know. It's incredibly satisfying when that trap door goes down and you know that cat's life will be ever so much better.
  • Timing varies, it depends on how many cats but plan on a minimum of two hours. You'll be in and out of the car so you'll want to dress for the weather.

Some volunteers use their own vehicles, but we do have a van available for use. Locations are throughout St. Joe county

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.
