There are many intriguing shops lining Asbury Avenue in downtown Ocean City. One such store, which also serves an important purpose, is Mew To You, located at 959 Asbury Avenue.
In addition to being a resale shop, offering everything from toy cars to musical instruments to fine china, Mew To You is also home base for Cape-Atlantic C.A.T.S. (Citizens Altering The Strays), a 501(c)(3) organization which rescues homeless cats and kittens and finds them loving forever homes.
The cats which find their way to Mew To You are brought in and housed in two large rooms with their feline friends and are fed and cared for by the staff members until they are able to be placed in permanent homes. During the time at Mew To You, the cats receive any necessary medical treatment, as well. Those who wish to adopt one of the beloved animals at Mew To You will pay a small adoption fee and fill out an adoption form to be able to bring one or more of these loving pets home.
If you’re interested in adding a furry family member to your home, Mew To You is an excellent spot to do so. Not ready for a new addition? There are other ways to help the temporary residents of Mew To You. Donate some items to the Mew To You shop, as proceeds from the sale of the items go towards helping the C.A.T.S. facility continue its operations. Also, C.A.T.S. hosts a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. Two upcoming events include a bowling fundraiser on Sunday, August 19, at King Pin Bowling in Egg Harbor Township and charity golf tournament fundraiser on Saturday, October 27, at the Mays Landing Golf and Country Club. Additional details on both events can be found online.
