Would you recommend The House of Mews?

by Holly S. from Memphis (Administrator for this Organization) (2012-02-07 14:17:48.0)
As of May 2012, I will have volunteered with The House of Mews for 2 years as a Retail Crew Volunteer. I have worked Morning Care Crew a few times. Through my experience with The House of Mews, I have witnessed hundreds of adoptions and participated and/or helped organize fundraising events. The House of Mews is an organization unlike any other in Memphis, Tennessee. I could tell you 100 things you could easily find online, but what I find most rewarding about my time spent at The House of Mews is helping these kitties find homes. Homes with individuals that care and want the best for our rescues. All of our volunteer staff play a vital role is making the lives of these cats better. I really hope we can expand our family and find volunteers who will share our passion in the safety and welfare of the cats in the Memphis area!
