How to Guide

Best Friends has a great article on How to Rehome a Cat or Dog. The guide contains information on how to market your cat, including writing a compelling classified ad for your cat and screening potential adopters.

Submit an Admission Request to the Cat's Meow

The Cat's Meow is a limited admissions shelter. Because we keep each cat until they find a loving home, we are only able to admit a new cat when we have space available.

Remember that you are your cat's best option to find a new home. You know your cat and are the best person to help your cat happily transition to a new home.

Check with Other Shelters

There are several other shelters and rescue groups in the area that may be able to help you find another home for your cat.

Finding a home for your cat can take time, so start early if you have a deadline. Please do not abandon your cat. Cats cannot fend for themselves. An abandoned cat will likely fall prey to a predator or slowly starve to death.
