Each year

We rescue over 1000 cats and place nearly 300 in forever homes


Project MEOW is a non-profit with over hundreds of volunteers. While many of our volunteers reside around the Philly area, we do have volunteers in Boston, Vermont, and even France and Germany. Below are volunteer positions that we urgently need filled. Please visit Volunteer Opportunities to see all of the various ways that you can get involved. We look forward to receiving your volunteer application!

Foster Caregiver

Temporarily take care of adoptable cats and kittens in your home, providing attention and love. Learn more about fostering.

Care of Recovering Cats

We hold cats in traps at our temporary recovery space before and after their surgery. Volunteers clean traps and feed the cats. There are two shifts a day: morning and afternoon/evening. Volunteers sign up for shifts using an online calendar. Volunteers receive thorough training. Must be able to lift 20 pounds.


We have various needs for transport. Our two most critical needs are:

  • Transport of numerous cats to/from PAWS surgery clinic that requires a hatchback or larger. These trips are usually quick pick-up or drop-off.
  • Transport of one or two cats to PAWS for appointments or for transfer to adoption stream. These trips usually require waiting and can be done with any vehicle. (Occasionally, a larger vehicle is needed when numerous cats transfer.)

Most transport needs are during the week day but there are infrequent evening emergency trips and some need for transport to the weekend vaccine clinic.
