Low Cost Spay or Neuter Surgeries Are Available

This time of year shelters and rescue organizations are overwhelmed with kittens and puppies. If you've been wanting to do the right thing to help end pet overpopulation but have been unable to because of the expense, we can help.

Browse the list of low cost clinics in the area. There is sure to be one near you.

Vouchers for Free Public Spay/Neuter Surgeries Available through MEOW

Thanks to grant funds received, we are continuing to provide needed spay/neuter surgery support to those in our community. Since we received our first grant mid 2010, we have funded over 2400 spay/neuter surgeries. Funds are available for dogs, feral or free-roaming cats, cats belonging to anyone needing financial assistance, and cats who qualify for our Toms & Moms program. While MEOW has often provided monetary support for community members needing financial assistance or those managing feral cat colonies, these additional grant funds help us do more. If you know someone who could use our help, please have them call the shelter (425-822-6369) or email us at spayneuter@meowcatrescue.org.

Top 3 Reasons to Spay and Neuter

  1. It helps to reduce companion animal overpopulation. Most countries have a surplus of companion animals and are forced to euthanize or disregard their great suffering. The surplus is in the millions in the United States. Cats are 45 times as prolific, and dogs 15 times as prolific, as humans. They do not need our help to expand their numbers; they need our help to reduce their numbers until there are good homes for them all.
  2. Sterilization of your cat or dog will increase his/her chance of a longer and healthier life. Altering your canine friend will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years, felines, 3 to 5 years. Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometria, and uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers.
  3. Sterilizing your cat/dog makes him/her a better pet, reducing his/her urge to roam and decreasing the risk of contracting diseases or getting hurt as they roam. Surveys indicate that as many as 85% of dogs hit by cars are unaltered. Intact male cats living outside have been shown to live on average less than two years. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) is spread by bites and intact cats fight a great deal more than altered cats.

Journey

Meet Journey, a new member of our MEOW Canine family. This 6-month-old Shiba Inu/Jundo mix is a sweet, energetic little pup. But her friendly personality is a surprise considering the rough start she had in life. Journey was born in South Korea. On New Year's Eve, someone set fire to Journey and her litter mates. She was the only puppy to survive. Journey suffered serious injuries to her front paws - her left paw is almost entirely gone, making it difficult for her to get around.

Read more of Journey's story and learn how you can help her.


New Year's Resolution -- Find Love

5-13-15 Update: Tempest is still waiting patiently for her forever home. Perhaps we should rename her Snickers or Sweetie Pie, just in case folks think her name is too fitting. No matter what her name, we know that someone will call her, "the love of their life". We just hope it happens soon.  If you know someone looking for that special someone to share the summer and beyond, please mention Tempest to them.

Original New Year's Day Story - Can you help six of our longest term residents keep their New Year's resolution? Blanca, Holly & Nicholas, Susie, Tempest, and Thor have been at the shelter for way too long. Although we do our best to make them feel loved, shower them with affection, and let them know just how special they are, it just doesn't compare to having a home and family of their own. We would love nothing more than to start 2015 off just right by finding each one of these amazing cats their forever home. If your house is full, perhaps you know of a friend or family member who has resolved to find love this year -- you could play matchmaker and create happiness in two lives.

Tempest

Tempest is a sweet senior lady who will celebrate her 12th birthday at the beginning of April. She has been at the shelter for almost 4 months, way too long for someone in their golden years. She is the cutist little lap cat that is quite outgoing despite her age. There's still a lot of life left in this girl. She loves to purr and reward you for all your attention to her. Her hobbies include gazing out windows, cuddling with her people, and playing with toys. Her favorites are cat charmers, feather toys, and toy mice. Tempest has lived with other cats and dogs and while she is friendly enough, she tends to be bullied and would prefer a home where she is the only pet. But this girl will keep you plenty entertained and loved in return.

If you are interested in meeting any of Tempest and making 2015 her best year ever, please fill out an adoption application and bring it with you when you come to visit.

AniMeals Food Drive for Families in Need

We have been hosting our continual food drive for over three years now. We are thrilled to have donated so much pet food for the animals of families in need through Hopelink in Kirkland. Please stop by the shelter with your donation of dry or canned pet food. Sometimes all that is needed to keep a pet in his or her home is a little food and a little help.
