MEOW Now and Friends of Strays have joined forces! MEOW Now is now a Friends of Strays program. Read more about this effort here.
MEOW Now works with community cat caregivers to target colonies for the Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) program. Volunteer trappers are available by appointment to help trap cats.
Caregivers who want to trap by themselves but cannot transport can also receive assistance from our MEOW Now volunteers.

How is MEOW Now different than Pinellas Cats Alive?

MEOW Now is designed to work with community cat caregivers to target colonies for the TNVR program through volunteer-assisted trapping or through self-trapping and volunteer-assisted transport. This program is best suited for trapping multiple cats at a time from a colony that has a regular feeding schedule and a regular caregiver.

Pinellas Cats Alive! is designed for an individual who may have one or two free-roaming cats around their neighborhood that they would like to have spayed or neutered, and who will handle the trapping, transport, and return. Learn more about this program here.
