A Place for Meow
Rapid City, South Dakota, USA
We are local to Rapid City SD and the Black Hills area; we strive for safe and healthy homes for all of our rescues!
Jennifer Cramer founded this rescue in 2018 by stumbling across cats in need. Her passion grew and she has been a staple to our community by being a safe place for these cats and kittens to go when hope has failed them. Jennifer cannot and will not allow them to be in harm's way nor will she allow for them to be in need. Her reputation has exploded in our community therefore she has recruited her team!
Abbee Draine of Sturgis shares Jen's passion and commitment to the care and the well-being of the cats and kittens of our community. Abbee specializes in neonate kitten care and spends many hours a day nursing these babies back to health!
Amy Elsner is a hard-working dedicated team member that has these kittens in her heart. She is awesome and her desire to help is outstanding and admirable!
Lastly, Stacy Stover shares the desire and passion to rescue and provide for these cats and kittens. She has a soft spot for senior and adult cats in need. Stacy has been rescuing and rehoming animals for many years on her own and has now joined our team!
Together we make an amazing team and with the help of our fosters we are making miracles happen within our community! Our hope is that one day, we will be able to have control of the stray and unwanted population and are able to keep up with the needs of our community.
We use no kill principles, TNR(Trap, Neuter, and Release), and education to save cat lives through rescue, medical aid, adoption and spay neuter in Rapid City, South Dakota and the Black Hills area.Our focus is to make a difference in the lives of all animals that cross our path.
We received our 501c3 status in April 2022. As of today, January 28th, 2023, we have:
Taken in approximately 503 Cats and Kittens (currently trying to catch one to make 504)
5 puppies (too little to adopt or fix yet)
Of those 156 are in our care and either spayed or neutered
15 (16 if we catch the little bugger) are currently in our care and are too little to be spayed or neutered
317 Have been adopted into loving homes
174 of those are spayed or neutered
143 are contracted to be spayed or neutered.
60 were recently acquired from a hoarding situation (all fixed by Dr Irons at Noah's Ark Animal Hospital) and some are taming down and will actually be able to become pets!
We are volunteer and foster based. We do not have a facility. All of our efforts come from the hearts of our board members, fosters, volunteers and supporters!
