Hello friends and neighbors!


Please allow us to introduce The Cat’s Meow Cat Rescue. We are a small group of dedicated individuals who started a non-profit cat rescue group because we saw the need to help cats in this area.


We are registered with the State of Oregon and have our 501(c)3 designation which means we will give a receipt for any donation of money or supplies for a deduction on your taxes. We have a bank account and PayPal/Venmo accounts which will be used solely to fulfill our mission of helping cats live better lives.


Our mission is to help improve the overall lives of cats in our community and our rescue partners to help find homes for cats. We will do this in many ways from trap-neuter-return (TNR) to finding placement for abandoned or unwanted cats. We promise to behave ethically, honestly and always with the best interests of our community in mind. 


We would love to gain your support and look forward to hearing from you. 

Please reach out to us if you need help with cats


Thank you, Team CMCR
