Due to the COVID-19 outbreak worldwide, we are closed to intake indefinitely as we have to concentrate on those kitties currently in our care and keep space open for any possible returns. Also, it is getting more difficult to get vet appointments and spay/neuter clinics are shutting down for the safety of their own employees.
The beginning of Kitten Season is upon us and we ask that should you find kittens outside you leave them in place so that their momma cat can care for them. Most shelters and rescues are no longer doing intakes and if you remove them from their momma and do not have the experience or means to care for them you will be doing them more harm then good. The best thing you can do right now is provide them with shelter and make sure momma is fed daily.
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 and TN . We do accept owner surrenders in certain instances based upon need.
Meow Stories is also an iGive approved charity, and an Amazon Smile approved charity.
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.
The following is the approximate number of cats we have helped per year find forever homes thanks to our expanding partnership with PetSmart:
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.
