The Cat’s Meow Animal Rescue League is a nonprofit 501(c)3 no kill animal rescue. The Cat’s Meow was formed in 2013 to rescue abandoned, abused and stray cats.The founder has been rescuing cats for over 20 years. WE ARE NOT A SHELTER, WE DO NOT HAVE A SHELTER. We do not take in surrendered cats from private owners. We work directly with local Animal Control Officers, Veterinarian Clinics and Humane Societies to assist with their animals in need.
Our goal is to become one of the most organized & respected feline organizations in New England! We are dedicated & focused on improving the lives of cats in Connecticut.
Our Volunteer’s Drive Us:
The Cat’s Meow Animal Rescue League is comprised of foster homes with dedicated volunteers. We do not have a free standing shelter. Our volunteers open their hearts and their warm homes to take in cats and help them recover physically and emotionally while they adjust to a healthy home life prior to adopting them to their forever homes. We would not be able to do all that we do without our dedicated foster homes.
Volunteers, foster families and donations are always welcome and appreciated. Remember, without you, none of this would be possible.
Our goal is to match the right pet with the right adopter. This means we approach each adoption opportunity in a unique way. One of our adoption specialists will meet (in person, or by phone) with you to learn about your "ideal pet." We take into consideration lifestyle, family dynamic, desired personality traits and an adopter’s overall objective in bringing a new pet into their home and make recommendations on which of our pets may be a good fit.
We understand that bringing a new pet into your home can be a little stressful. It can take time for a new animal to settle in, and you may have questions about behavior or routine. When we adopt out a pet to a new home, we are available to answer any questions that come up - and to support the new adopter with any special needs they may have related to in-home adjustment.
