Assisting Our Community With The Homeless Cat Population In West Philadelphia

Founded in 2002, Project MEOW is an all-volunteer non-profit cat rescue group that either directly helps homeless cats or works with community members in West Philadelphia neighborhoods to assist them in caring for cats located in their vicinity. Our mission is to humanely reduce the future population of cats living on the streets via spay/neuter, while simultaneously improving the lives of current homeless cats through our foster/adoption program and colony cat program.

Trap-Neuter-Return-Manage (TNRM) is both the humane and the scientifically-proven best approach for controlling the community cat population. The Manage component refers to the care of the outdoor cats in a safe, controlled environment by a community Caretaker.

Many of the cats found outdoors, sadly, are previously owned cats who are accustomed to an indoor life and not suited for survival outdoors. We identify those cats and strive to bring them into our foster/adoption program when we have space.

We are limited by resources, both monetary and volunteers, so we prioritize helping injured, sick and older cats, orphaned kittens and any cats that are in a dangerous environment.

Project MEOW adheres to all animal laws and Philadelphia city ordinances. Project MEOW does not ever trap and kill.
