Our Mission ♡

Welcome to Meow Defense! 🔪💥

Hey there! I'm Elizabeth, and I started Meow Defense in 2014 right here in Los Angeles, CA. As a Latina-owned, small business, it's been my mission to offer cute and affordable self-defense tools to help you feel safe and empowered.

🌸 How It All Began: When I was 15, I started carrying pepper spray while using public transportation to school. Older men often followed me, which was really scary. As I got older, I found myself giving advice on pepper spray and defense keychains to other women. That’s when I decided to open my own shop! To this day, I run everything from home, all by myself. A true small biz from start to finish. 💕

✨ Our Goal: At Meow Defense, we believe in the power of feeling safe and stylish! Our tools are perfect for anyone who wants to protect themselves without sacrificing cuteness. We also stress the importance of carrying self-defense weapons for all humans. Your safety is our priority.

🌟 Community Love: Every month, we give back to the community. When you shop with us, you're not only protecting yourself (or a loved one) but also helping someone in need. Check out our blog to see our latest contributions! All orders will help fund donations to mutual aid group, Sacramento Punks With Lunch. Previously we donated to the Downtown Women's Center in DTLA. Plus, your tools come with a Peace of Mind Guarantee.

👊🏾 Empower Yourself: Whether you choose to build up your strength and fight technique or purchase one of our adorable tools, remember that these products are not toys. Learn to use them and keep them accessible when you’re out and about. And always check your local and state laws!

Stay cute, stay safe!! 🌸✨

With love,
Elizabeth 💕
