MEOW Foundation

Here for cats and the people who love them.

MEOW Foundation is a cat-focused registered charity and humane society with a no-kill mandate. Since 2000, we've been rescuing and facilitating the adoption of stray and abandoned cats into new, loving permanent homes.

We work hard to ensure that each MEOW cat is matched with the best possible home based on his or her personality, history, habits and individual needs.

Our Story

Cat looking at the camera

MEOW Foundation was founded in 2000 by 11 passionate volunteers, brought together by their concern for the welfare of stray and abandoned cats. At the time, the majority of cats in Calgary’s shelters faced euthanasia. We set out to create an alternative model whereby no cat would be killed.
