Raised by 79 people in 6 months

Meow or Never is a charity organization working to reduce overcrowding in Las Vegas shelters with a unique and effective adoption strategy.

We've come a long a way, and it is all thanks to YOU! Thank mew for all of your cat-love, patience, and support! Meow or Never still has a ways to go, and we need your help MEOW more than ever! 

The building permits and health department licensing fees are $9272!

Please consider sharing our cause or donating, so we can continue working towards helping Las Vegas' 200,000 cats in-need!

Meow or Never is soon to be Las Vegas' First Cat Cafe - We are located at 80 & 100 E California Avenue in the DTLV Arts District!

Many adoptable cats do not thrive in the traditional shelter environment, and to make matters worse, shelters struggle to encourage cat-lovers to come by regularly. Meow or Never's unique concept is a pawsome way to address these issues! Our free-roaming cat rescue provides our adoptable cafe cats the comfort they need to show off their individual personalities, and our coffee shop encourages cat-lovers to come by regularly. 

The first cat cafe opened in Japan in 1998, and the concept was so successful that cat cafes have now spread across the world! There are already over 30 cat cafes in the United States! Meow or Never will be the 3rd U.S. cat cafe to be nonprofit. We are working to achieve a similar impact as the first nonprofit cat cafe, who lowered Oakland's Feline Euthanasia Rate from 44% to 14%!

At first glance this might sound like an ambitious goal, but Meow or Never has a history of achieving the impossible! In just one year, we have SECURED A PHYSICAL LOCATION, hosted 4 successful adoption events that more than 850 cat-lovers attended, we have found furever homes for 14 cats, and we have raised over 20.5K in donations!
