(Make Each Orphan Wanted)
(A non-profit, non-destroy animal welfare for cats)
Annual Newsletter***Greetings from MEOW, Inc.***Summer 2016
Another year has passed and we continue to come to the aid of the abandoned and homeless felines in our area. Our hope is to someday be out of business and not requesting your support but unfortunately that time has not come and there are still many felines that need our help. Once again we call on you to enable us to assist them.
The plight of these felines continues to be grave and their endurance of neglect and suffering is heart breaking. As long as we are receiving pleas for assistance, we are energized to continue to help all that we can. Our wish is to carry on but we cannot do this without you. We again ask for your financial support so that we may continue to aid the abandoned and homeless felines in our community by providing the financial assistance required for their medical rehabilitation.
We are not able to accept cats since we do not have a shelter or the availability of extensive foster homes, but the veterinary care support we provide to rescue groups and independent rescuers enables them to foster, rehabilitate and eventually place felines. We continue to help private individuals with spay and neuter assistance for strays they have so kindly taken in. Without this act of compassion, these felines would be left on their own to starve. Once again we ask you follow along with us on our journey and continue to support us with your financial donations and with your blessings and good wishes.
Until we write again, Board of Directors, MEOW, Inc., P. O. Box 999, Litchfield, CT 06759
PS: Do you remember Fred and Holly and Gabriella and Guinness from our letter to you last year? We are happy to report they are all doing well and enjoying their forever homes. They send their regards along with their thanks. And it is your generosity that saved their lives and gave them a forever home.

M.E.O.W., INC. has re-structured and re-focused our efforts.
Please read the following press release published in the Sunday Republican in Waterbury Connecticut on June 14, 2009.
MEOW, Inc., past and present
MEOW, Inc. wishes to notify the public of its current status. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) cat welfare organization having once housed a non-destroy shelter in Litchfield, Connecticut.
After more than 10 years in existence, our shelter was forced to close after we lost our lease. For more than five years, colony work and adoption efforts continued with volunteers providing shelter in the form of foster homes with adoptions at open houses at various venues across the county.
In 2007, our supervising veterinarian and founder of MEOW, Inc., Dr. Mary Huhndorf, relocated with her family back to her native Alaska.
With Dr. Huhndorf’s departure and a shrinking volunteer base, MEOW has restructured and refocused our current activities keeping in line with our original mission.
Although MEOW is no longer involved in sheltering and adopting homeless cats, we continue to offer spay and neuter assistance on a case by case basis to the public along with educational advice and counsel.
Because MEOW is strictly non-destroy, MEOW also continues to provide for and fund the long term care needs, including medical care and supplies, for our special-needs cats that were placed into permanent homes over the years.
We also would like to address our old web site, “meowct.org”. This web page was set up in 2002 by one of our volunteers at that time.
The content of the website is out-of-date and we have repeatedly tried to close this site, without success, as we have not been able to locate the volunteer who originally developed and owns the site. We will continue to try to shut this site down and we apologize for any confusion. Our current web site is at www.meow-inc.petfinder.com.
