Meow & Forever Rehoming Assistance Program
Meow & Forever helps cats stay out of shelters. It is a program to provide you with the resources to find the best home when you need to rehome your cat. At FieldHaven, we understand that there are times when keeping your cat may no longer be an option. We are here to help you to find a new family and home for your cat without having to surrender them to a shelter. With Meow & Forever, we support and guide you through the steps to finding a new home. Meow & Forever offers you the resources to help you choose a new home that is a good match. You know your cat best so who better to tell potential adopters all about your cat. It also reduces the stress that cats often experience in a shelter.
Meow & Forever is not a “waiting list” for your cat to be surrendered to FieldHaven. It a program where you have access to our adoption experts who’ve had nearly two decades experience placing kitties in homes. We are clever at marketing and match-making. You have access to all that talent! Additionally, we partner with several other adoption programs where there could be opportunities to transfer your kitty. To maintain the high standards of health care cats in our adoption program receive before adoption, we require the following of cats in Meow & Forever:
- Up to date on FVRCP and Rabies vaccines
We also require good quality photos (and videos, too) to include in your kitty’s posting. It is also important that you add new content (photos, updates, video) periodically to keep the posting fresh and interesting.
Registering Your Cat
Registering your cat with Meow & Forever is easy. A FieldHaven representative will contact you to review the CIS with you. Once approved, your cat will be posted to FieldHaven’s website. You can then use social media and other means to network and market your kitty. We can provide you support and answer questions on the path to finding that perfect home.
