Ways to Give - Ways to Help

There are so many different ways that you can help us provide a soft place to land for the animals. Donations of shelter supplies help us reduce our operating expenses. Monetary donations help us cover the expenses of providing everyday shelter and care as well as needed veterinary care. However you chose to give, know that your gift makes a difference and truly does help! Thank you.



Cash Donations (One Time Gifts or Recurring Donations)

How Your Donations Help

  • one microchip for a cat
  • one day of supplies for morning shelter cleaning
  • adoption packets for 5 cats going to their forever homes

  • one neuter surgery for a male cat
  • one series of core vaccines for a kitten
  • laundry detergent & bleach for 50 loads of laundry (1 week)

A monthly or quarterly donation (minimum $10), made through Click and Pledge, is an easy and wonderful way to help the animals all year long. There is a small credit card processing fee, which is removed from each payment, but it's not any higher than regular credit card processing fees. Each time your donation is processed you will receive an email receipt.

P.O. Box 58

Donation of Stock

If you were thinking of locking in some of your capital gains this year, consider the more tax-efficient alternative of donating shares of appreciated mutual funds or stock to BCRF instead. You can deduct the current market value of the gift for income tax purposes, just as if you had made cash payment. As an added advantage, you will avoid any capital gains taxes you would have owed if you had sold the assets instead. Instructions for making a donation of stocks.

Donate Your Car

Because of our very special relationship with Starbuck's Towing, donating your car to MEOW is easy, and more importantly, 100% of the proceeds benefit MEOW. They will pick up your vehicle (within greater western Washington) and transfer the title. When the vehicle is re-sold 100% of the proceeds is donated to MEOW. To get more information or to donate, please email MEOW Canine.

Tree of Life ~ Leaves of Love

Now and forever
A tribute to the pets in our homes
And the ones in our hearts

With the addition of our new shelter space, we have transplanted our Tree of Life. Its beautiful bronze Leaves of Love continue to grow and shine. This permanent mural will commemorate the special animals in our lives, past and present. With a minimum contribution of $500, a bronze leaf, engraved with sentiments of your choosing, will be added to the tree. Your pet's name and a dedication will honor your relationship. The Leaves of Love on the Tree of Life will serve as a lasting tribute to your dear friend; the moments you've shared, silly times, sad times. As the Tree of Life grows its Leaves of Love, our Mercy Fund will grow from your donations.

The Mercy Fund is designated for emergency veterinary care for injured, ill or abused animals. Thank you for honoring your animals in this way.

Each leaf can have up to four or as few as two lines; character spaces are limited to 18 per line.

Need some ideas? Here are a few examples:

In memory of
The best dog ever
A tribute to
Fluffly & Callie
The Smith Family
To honor
All cats and dogs
John & Mary


To create your leaf of love, fill out the form (.doc) and mail it with your donation to the shelter. Or stop by the shelter to see the tree and fill out the form there.

Have You Seen this Metro Bus Ad?

Do you want people to swoon over your Siamese mix? Be tantalized by your tabby, tortie or tuxedo? Be beguiled by your beautiful black cat? Here's your chance to show everyone how proud you are of your fantastic feline.

MEOW is offering the opportunity for you to feature your own cat or cats on the tail of a METRO bus for four weeks for a tax deductible donation of $1000 or more. If you don't have a bus-worthy headshot of your kitty, one of our great MEOW photographers will come to your home and get a perfect picture of your pussycat. Your kitty can become a local celebrity like these two MEOW alumni, Fritz and Morris.

Show your love for your own cats while helping those still looking for their forever home. For more information please e-mail Marilyn.

Newsletter Tribute (To Honor & Remember)

Each quarter we publish a newsletter in which we share stories about the lives we have saved, the happy endings, and just what we've been up to recently. There is a special section in each newsletter dedicated to honoring and remembering animals and people in our lives. For a minimum $50 donation, you may include a tribute to someone special (two legged or four legged). For more information, email Marilyn.
