To meet the need in the community, Woods is launching a 2021 goal to raise enough Project M.E.O.W. funds to spay/neuter 1000 unowned community cats in 2021!
Project M.E.O.W. aims to help manage community cat populations by offering a subsidized spay/neuter surgery, in addition to a rabies vaccine and an identifying ear tip, for just $25. This reduced cost allows local rescues and concerned citizens to Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) more community cats, both friendly and feral.
Since its inception in 2019, Project M.E.O.W. has already helped fund 1,913 ultra-low-cost community cat spay/neuter surgeries, stabilizing cat colonies and preventing an estimated 10,908 kittens from being born to a life without a home or basic medical care. With kitten season coming, and with the estimated mortality rate of unowned kittens thought to be as high as 75 percent, this cause is both humane and urgent.
