"Tess & her brother Paul came from a hoarder situation in Washington DC. When she first arrived she was sick and blind. Now she is healthy sassy little girl. She loves to run and play and thinks your legs are meant for climbing." - BCR

Our third commentathon fundraising has ended. With your support, we have received around 5,100 comments since Oct (I put together an amount of $255 in the fund). Thank you so much for your support. Many of you have nominated shelters to receive this fund and to be featured on Love Meow. They all deserve to be recognized. One of them got the most nominations of all. We would like to introduce to you a very special rescue group: Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary.

Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary began in 2005 in a mission to provide refuge to blind cats who were determined unfit for adoption and had once been scheduled for euthanasia. It is a cage-free, no-kill facility where all the feline residents are given a lifetime of love and care.

Many wonderful animal rescue groups have gone unnoticed. Today we have chosen the Goathouse Refuge to accept the fund we raised through the Save Meow Project (we donate 5 cents for every comment you make on and we would like to share their stories with all of you. Thanks Licia Grainger for referring this lovely organization to us. The Goathouse Refuge (located in Pittsboro, North Carolina) is a no-kill animal sanctuary dedicated to providing cage-free care for cats regardless of age, medical issues or disposition until a permanant loving adoptive home can be found.

All the rescues can roam freely all day except for the sick cats who are taking medication and the new arrivals who are temporally caged until they are vetted and ready to transition into the population as a whole.

Who is the hero behind the organization? Let’s hear the story from her, Siglinda Scarpa, founder and primary benefactor of The Goathouse Refuge.

Lynea Lattanzio - Cat House on the Kings

Imagine a clean, spacious adoption center where cats can live cage free and roam around in a large house and a spacious backyard. It must be a dream place for many homeless, stray and feral cats to stay in.

In fact, there is a place like that which is located in Parlier, California. It is called the Cat House on the Kings that spans 12 acres along the Kings River in the central San Joaquin Valley, southeast of Fresno.

The Cat House on the Kings is a no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary founded 18 years ago by Lynea Lattanzio, who was one of the top 10 nominees for the 2007 cat hero of the year by Animal Planet. She has helped save more than 18,000 cats and spayed and neutered another 40,000 animals. There are currently 700 cats and kittens living happily in this cage-free environment.
