This year Howls and Meows will benefit the Crazy Cat Lady Animal Rescue, a 501c3 non-profit group located in the New River Valley. Their mission is to find permanent, loving homes for their fosters while providing them with temporary shelter and responsible medical care. They are dedicated to educating the public on the importance of pet sterilization, responsible pet ownership, and the humane treatment of animals. Additionally, they strive to reduce cat overpopulation by ensuring all of their fosters are sterilized and by participating in Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) programs. Since 2014, they have placed over 160 foster animals into permanent homes.

Be sure to check out their booth at Brew Do this year, where you can meet some of their fosters and help them raise money for their organization by purchasing t-shirts.
