Welcome to the blog for It's Meow or Never Animal Rescue, a 501(c)(3), non-profit, no-kill animal rescue organization. We rescue cats and dogs and after having them seen by the vet, we adopt them to loving, forever homes. Please come back often as we will try and update this site every day.

Please contact us if you need adoption assistance with an animal - if you provide a photo of the animal, we can list it on national databases to help find it a suitable home.

Please*do not* ever give your animal away for free ... learn why.

I just learned of a fabulous blog, One World, One Heart. Lisa Swifka is the author of this blog and she is having a worldwide contest! This is an excerpt from Lisa:

The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way...This is more than wanting to win something.......that is only the means.......in the end it's about finding kindred spirits."


I have decided to join this wonderful event and I am having a give-a-away which is open to everyone!

How to enter:

Just leave a comment on my blog and I will pick the winner on February 12th. This contest runs from January 9-February 12th. So hurry and enter!

The prize will be all three items:

1 Ounce Chocolate Nut Brownie Fragrance Oil

A sample of our Dried Pink Rose Petals and Buds

One Strawberry Scented Potpourri Sachet

Good luck!!!
Green Tree Botanicals
