Little Mews is an all volunteer, non profit, 501(c)3, no-kill rescue organization located in Chenango County NY. We take in cats and kittens from a variety of situations, most are stray, unwanted, neglected or abused. We can
also refer you to other organizations in the area that have dogs, cats
and other animals for adoption, and have information about low cost spay
and neuter options.
our cats and kittens who are ready for adoption have been checked by a
vet, vaccinated for FVRCP, rabies (if over 4 months), tested for Feline
Leukemia, FIV, wormed, and spayed/neutered if old enough. Any health conditions are treated so that the cats can be adopted as healthy as possible.
cats don't live in small shelter cages. Many are cared for in foster family homes
with lots of love and attention. When ready for adoption, they move into our adoption center. They're socialized with other cats and
large friendly dogs when possible. We try to get them to adapt to normal family life
so they'll be ready to settle in to their new homes quickly. Since the
cats and kittens live in a home, not a shelter cage, we can take the
time to know each cat individually. We know which ones are shy or
outgoing, who is the most playful, or the most quiet. Because we know
the personality of each cat and kitten, we're able to match you with one
that will fit your lifestyle the best.
Our goal is
to find safe, healthy, forever homes for cats and to promote
spay/neuter so that the number of unwanted cats is lowered every year.
We want each cat and kitten adopted to a home where it will live forever
and promise to take back any who are unable to remain with you, at any
time, for any reason.
ask for an adoption donation, which is used to help cover the cost of
veterinary care and may vary depending on the age and special needs of
the cat/kitten. We spay and neuter all older kittens and adult cats
before they are adopted and that will be included in the adoption
fee. There is spay/neuter assistance available for low income families
if needed, through several organizations and clinics.
occasion we'll list cats (or even a dog or two) as a courtesy to others
who need to find new homes for their pets, and can help arrange
adoption for you. If you need to find a new home for your cat or find
yourself with unwanted kittens, we'll help you find homes for them.
homes are always needed to help care for the cats and kittens until
they can find permanent homes. If you'd like to foster a litter of
kittens or adult cats, please let us know.
non-profit, no-kill organization depends on your generous donations.
Every penny of the donations goes towards caring for the cats and
kittens to provide veterinary care, good food, supplies and whatever
else they need. If you'd like to donate please see our donation page here
