The Meow Bow Wow Fund
The Meow Bow Wow Fund has been designed to do one thing - to make sure that every cat and dog in the United States has a chance for quality medical care and a place to call home.

It is estimated that:

  • Every day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in this country while only 10,000 people are born -- it's simple math -- there just aren't enough homes for all of these animals.
  • Every year 10-12 million animals are euthanized in shelters for lack of available homes.
  • On average, 64% of all animals taken into shelters nationwide have to be euthanized for this reason.
  • At least 50% of the overpopulation problem is unneutered males. Females can't do it alone.
  • Purebreds account for 30% of all the animals in shelters. "Papers" don't mean an animal should be bred.
  • For every home you find for an animal that you have bred, a home is lost for a shelter animal.
  • Breeding to "see the miracle of birth" demands that you also "see the tragic results". Visit a shelter.

Animal overpopulation has reached a
crisis point in this country.

We can change these statistics with your help!

This is how the Fund works:

Rescue Groups: Rescue groups make application to the Fund for reimbursement on monies spent for medical care. Alteration requests (spaying and neutering) are given first priority. We will help as many groups as we can (depending on the amount of funds available).

Veterinary Clinics and Hospitals: Veterinary clinics and hospitals that have a pet orphanage or a low cost alteration program can make application to the Fund for partial reimbursement on their costs to perform this service. A limited amount of funds are available for veterinary clinics and hospitals.

General Public: Anyone that is interested in adopting a pet from a pet orphanage or rescue group can make application to the Fund for assistance with medical care of the pet they are going to adopt. Alterations will be given first priority. No payment will ever be made to an individual - payments can only be made to a licensed veterinarian or clinic after the procedure has been performed.

All groups must provide documentation stating the monies received from the Fund were allocated to low cost alteration programs or basic medical care for their adoption programs.
