I volunteer my time at MEOW, which is located in Kirkland (www.meowcatrescue.org). This organization is really the best of the best. MEOW is a smaller organization that just celebrated it's 10th year. This organization has such a warm, friendly and down to earth feel. And the animals come first--always. These lucky felines receive the royal treatment. The shelter itself is clean, bright, cheerful and friendly. Every year, MEOW places approx 1600 cats and kittens into loving, forever homes.
