Cat’s Meow center needs community to adopt, make donations


If you are a fan of Sheldon Cooper and “The Big Bang Theory,” you probably already known that a group of cats is called a clowder or a glaring.

Whatever you call them, there are many cats and kittens in Las Cruces looking for loving, caring, permanent homes.

A Cat’s Meow Adoption Center, 2211 N. Mesquite St. has many cats and kittens on site, with more coming all the time.

In addition to adoptions, the center is seeking donations to help pay for the large and growing veterinary bills it is paying for the care of the animals it serves.

The center regularly holds spay/neuter clinics that cost the center $1,000 to $1,200 each, a Cat’s Meow email said. The next clinics are set for Mondays, May 23 and June 6. The clinics typically begin early in the morning and continue “until the last cat is picked up” that evening.

“We cannot stress enough the importance of continuing with these clinics,” The Cat’s Meow said in an email message. “Our area is overrun with cats and the problem will only get worse if nothing is done.”

Donate online at www.thecatsmeowlascruces.com and https://donorbox.org/century-club-donor.

Mail a donation to The Cat’s Meow, P.O. Box 3166, Las Cruces, N.M. 88003.

The Cat’s Meow’s “Make a Donation, Grab a Reusable Bag” campaign is still going on. Donations get you a “large and very sturdy reusable tote bag.”

For more information on upcoming clinics, donations, adoptions and volunteer opportunities, call 575-640-0011 and 575-639-3036.
