Our Vision

All communities caring for every cat with respect and compassion.

Our Mission

MEOW Foundation is a registered charity with a mission to save the lives of cats in Calgary through no-kill programs.

Guiding Principles

No-Kill Philosophy: We believe in a no-kill model of animal welfare.

Standard of Care: We believe every cat, whether young or old, social or shy, in good health or poor deserves a good life. Every cat is to be provided with the medical care, support and love necessary to thrive.

Happy Homes: We are committed to ensuring every cat finds its perfect match in a family or community home.

Community: We will work with animal welfare organizations and community members to end cat homelessness.

Volunteerism: Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do.
