The Meshoppen Cat rescue is Wyoming County’s only cat rescue and is proudly a no-kill shelter. At any given time, the rescue is home to more than 100 cats and kittens in their main rescue and in foster care. The rescue is run by volunteers and relies on followers as well as local community for support.
“We have the most thankless job anyone can undertake. We are rescuers of the unwanted, sick and homeless cats and kittens of Wyoming County. As we constantly work to spay and neuter, we hope that this will be the last generation of homeless cats,” one volunteer said. “Our rescue is always looking for volunteers. Even an hour or two a week can dramatically change the life of a shelter cat.
Being home to more than 100 cats, this rescue is in constant need of supplies.
Throughout February, Scranton CCC collected more than $1,000 worth of items to donate to the rescue, including cat litter, kitten and cat food, bleach, paper towels, cat toys and treats, cleaning supplies and more. Corrections Counselor 2 Bill Barrager and Monitor Joe Fabricatore (pictured below) delivered the items.
