This is one of the most overwhelming kitten seasons we have seen in our 10 years of rescue. We are closed to intake except from our shelter partners.
Meow Stories is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit all volunteer foster based cat rescue which was founded in 2009. Meow Stories specializes in cats and kittens coming from underserved rural shelters across Virginia mainly below the I64 corridor and private rescuers in these areas as well as several rural shelters in WV, NC, and TN. We help whether the need is great.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT OWNER SURRENDERS.
Our primary mission is to support Rural and Overpopulated Shelters, and over the course of the last several years we have also become heavily involved with the networking, placement and transport of special needs and senior kitties up and down the East Coast of the United States.
Meow Stories is an iGive, Benevity, and Dominion Energy approved Charity.
Since the current management took over Meow Stories in 2016, we have successfully grown our foster-based rescue and our partnership with PetSmart so that in 2020 we were able to find 1024, in 2021 another 1002, and in 2022 another 1115 cats and kittens loving homes.
Due to the high volume of adoptions yearly and the lack of volunteers plus grant funding, we are no longer involved in TNR. This is an unfortunate situation however we have put all of our efforts into assisting underserved rural shelters with great success.
