The idea for starting The Cat’s Meow Animal Rescue came about in August 2012 when Carla and Talia rescued seven kittens that were dumped at the South Los Angeles City Shelter. To save the kittens from euthanasia, Carla and Talia took them home, cared for them, and began searching for their loving forever homes. A local dog rescue group offered to help Carla and Talia show the cats at the neighborhood Petco store. All seven kittens were adopted into loving forever homes.
Little by little, this single rescue evolved into a full-blown cat rescue organization! Initially, the rescue cats were graciously hosted at local adoption events by our dog rescue friends. Then, in March 2014, The Cat’s Meow was granted 501(c)(3) status and established itself officially as an all-volunteer nonprofit cat rescue.
In 2015, The Cat’s Meow rescued and rehomed over 300 cats! In addition to rescuing so many cats, the group was also able to provide spay and neuter services to hundreds more animals. Looking forward, we continue to grow our donor and foster bases in order to save even more cats next year.
The Cat’s Meow is a 100% volunteer-run nonprofit organization. As such, there is always a great need for monetary donations, foster homes for our rescue cats, volunteers to help run events, and, of course, loving forever homes for our kitties.
