Each cat will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and has tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. These streetwise felines will gladly provide you with rodent services in payment for their room and board. In return, your obligation would be to provide daily food and water, protection from the
elements, and vet care as needed.
Our Barn Cat Placement Program is for cats that are not adoptable into a home, but would happily live in a barn or other secure outdoor structure. These cats generally fall under one of these categories:
- Cats that were found as strays and may not be able to acclimate to indoor living.
- Cats that are shy/fearful of people and prefer the company of other animals.
Cats that are best suited to be indoor house pets will not be placed in our barn cat program. Kittens will need to be at least 6 months of age.
Things to Consider
Adopting a barn cat can help to save the life of a cat that may not have any other options. However the care of a barn cat is still a responsibility. You will be assuming its lifelong care which may be as much as 15-20 years. In return for providing shelter, food, water and medical care, your barn cat will earn its keep by helping to control the rodent population in your barn.
Please note that barn cats are available from late April to late August only. During this period, due to the nature of the program, we may not have suitable cats available immediately, but will try to meet your request as soon as possible – typically 14 days. We may recommend that you adopt a pair of cats if you have no other cats living in your barn. Filling out a barn cat adoption application is the first step to adoption!
