Our Mission

  1. To rescue, care for and adopt homeless cats.
  2. To educate the public on humane treatment of cats.
  3. To report and help stop abuse of animals.
  4. To encourage and help raise the respect for rights of animals.

storefrontThe House of Mews is a non-profit cat sanctuary that has  adopted over 8,500 cats since its inception in February of 1994.  This has been accomplished entirely by unpaid volunteers from all walks of life.

Our success has led to being featured nationally, internationlly, and locally in radio, TV and print media.  Our continued success depends on you! Come visit us soon, or help by making a donation.

Thank you for taking the time to consider the House of Mews as a sanctuary for cat. Our facilities are filled to capacity, but as soon as one kitty is adopted and a cage emptied, we are able to take another. To add your cat to our waiting list, please register on this website. 

Once you have your password, you can log in and fill out a rescue form (look for the "User Menu" on the left side of the screen after you log in).
