Adoption adopt a rescue animal or foster an animal
Did you know that shelters and rescues—large and small—always have a great selection of animals looking for new homes. You can find cats and dogs, birds and small animals. In fact, any type of animal available for sale at your local pet store or at a breeder is probably waiting for adoption in a nearby shelter or rescue. You only have to take a look.
Anyone can rehome an animal from us - what’s important is matching you, and your family, with the right animal, which will be based on their needs, and yours. Want to adopt? Here are a few simple steps:
Step 1 - Find each other online by visiting our instagram, facebook page or website. Or contact us at
Step 2 - Meet one of our adoption support volunteers who will help you with the process and introduce you to your future pet and its current foster parents. We’ll arrange for one of our adoption volunteers to visit you and your family at home.

Step 3 - Complete the adoption form which our volunteer will help you fill out. Don't forget to bring your tenancy contract with you!

Step 4 - Meet your future pet at their foster home to get acquainted.
Step 5 - Bring your new family member home to love and cherish for the rest of their lives!
Introducing a new pet to your home will be exciting, rewarding and, at times, challenging. It may take quite a while for your new pet to settle into life with you, but don’t worry, if you do encounter some tricky bits with your new pet, you’re not alone -we're here to support you!
Our rescued pets deserve a fabulous forever home! As a future adoptive it is important for you to understand the long term commitment you are about to make. Our duty is to be sure to find our furry friends the purrr-fect home where they will be cherished that's why we need to get to know you better! Please take the time to complete the Adoption Interview questionnaire and return it to
MEAF does not have a cattery or shelter, therefore all our dogs & cats are kept in foster homes until a suitable permanent home can be found. Re-homing a rescued animal can happen in as little as a few days or weeks, but usually it takes a few months to find a suitable home.  We are always on the look-out for new foster homes because that enables us to help more needy animals.
If you are interested in fostering please complete the Fostering Interview Questionnaire and return to

Volunteer there are so many different ways in which you can help
Interested in volunteering with us?
We guarantee your time contribution towards helping vulnerable animals will be the most satisfying feeling ever!
Whether you can foster rescued animals, help us rescue animals, design leaflets, or assist with a fundraising event, you can make a difference in the lives of animals.
Here are just a few of the benefits of volunteering with us:
1. Be part of the solution. You'll join a network of hundreds of people working to make the world safe and more humane for all living creatures. You'll make the jobs of everyone working for animals a little easier by lending a hand and spreading the message of responsible pet ownership and animal protection.
2. Get warm fuzzies. You'll never find a more grateful and accepting comrade than an animal you've comforted. You may be able to foster animals in your own home temporarily until they can be adopted permanently.
3. Keep good company. You'll make lots of new friends—and not just the four-legged kind. Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge lifelong friendships.
4. Meet the new you. You'll discover skills you never knew you had, and you may be surprised at what you're capable of achieving.
5. Gain a new career. You'll learn things that may lead you to the career—or career change—of your dreams. Employers and college admissions officers look favorably on time spent in volunteer service. 
6. Enjoy a wagging tail, a purr, and a smile. Didn't someone once say that the best things in life are free?

 There are many activities within the foundation that you can help us carry out. You must be 16 years old to volunteer at MEAF on a regular basis due to insurance reasons. Just fill out the Volunteer Form and send it to We look forward to working with you!
TNR What is TNR?

. TNR is the most commonly accepted and humane method for controlling the cat population
. The cat is trapped, taken to the veterinarian clinic to be neutered and returned to its original location
. After surgery the tip of one ear is clipped to indicate the sterilization and to avoid re-trapping
. TNR is done with care and respect for the animal and the procedure is carried out by a qualified veterinarian
. Simply relocating cats has proven inefficient because once a certain number of cats are removed, other cats will move in to benefit from food and shelter
Benefits of TNR
. LESS CATS: In the long run, TNR lowers the numbers of cats in the community
. LESS FIGHTS: TNR programmes ensure less fights over territory or mates, females will not suffer continuous pregnancies and fewer kittens will suffer as many do not live due to illness and hardship
. LESS NOISE: Most of the noise from an unmanaged colony comes from activity related to mating, such as yowling and fighting - behaviour which is greatly reduced by spay/neuter
. LESS ODOUR: Noxious odours are eliminated. Undeterred males mark their territory by spraying urine tinged with testosterone, causing foul odour. Neutering eliminates the testosterone, the pungent small and reduces or stops spraying altogether
. LESS HUNGER: Residents no longer have to observe hungry or dying cats or distressed kittens, common experiences associated with an out of control free roaming cat population
Because a major part of TNR is colony management, feeders will be providing food once a day or every other day, meaning cats will be less inclined to rummage through garbage bins
Community cat feeding

. By feeding and looking after community cats they provide a natural form of pest control. They hunt and kill pests such as mice and other rodents and their scent deters them from the area. They also prey on on other creatures such as, spiders, cockroaches and other insects.

. One of the advantages of TNR is that a neutered colony of cats will guard their territory against intrusion by new cats, who will likely not be neutered, thereby preventing the reproductive cycle from starting up again at that location.

. POST TNR? What you can do …

. It is important to establish managed colonies and to continue with the care post TNR. Healthy fed cats will be less of a nuisance to residents. These colonies will become the safe environment of unacceptable feral cats and prevents them from being unduly euthanised, (put to sleep by lethal injection).

. If you ask around you will be surprised to see how many of your neighbours will actually be willing to help with caring for a colony. You can make a difference and help with enhancing the welfare or our community cats.

. If you find a cat, knock on your neighbour’s door and ask if it’s their cat and post on your local community blog, noticeboard or Facebook page.

. If you don’t want cats in your garden simply spray them with the garden hose. Do not use chemicals, poison or hot water.

. You can help roaming cats by leaving fresh water in a bucket outside your house.

. What to do if you find a dead cat in your area - pick it up with a plastic bag and take it to the vet to check for a micro-chip.

. If your pet cat is un-neutered and roams outside your garden, it will probably mate with a stray cat producing more unwanted kittens.
