Barn Cat Program
Sometimes we find ourselves with cats that would prefer life in the great outdoors. For these select cats, we have developed a special program to help find them an outdoor home. *Please note that we do not adopt cats who are suitable to be household companions to barns.
Cats in our barn cat program typically are ones who are shy/fearful of people and therefore prefer the company of other cats and animals or ones whose habits make them not suitable for indoor life.
While we refer to these cats as “barn cats,” there are many housing options that could provide a safe, happy home for one of these special cats. Perhaps you own a large shed, warehouse, a workshop, or a garage. As long as the cat(s) will be safe from vehicles and other common dangers, we are willing to consider creative locations! If you have a working barn, warehouse, or other type of safe, heated outbuilding, there are cats who need you.
Having a barn cat or cats will help keep down the rodent population. The cats will be helping you, while you provide them a safe place to live. And, because these cats are already spayed or neutered, you won’t have to worry about endless litters of kittens appearing!
What we provide:
All cats available are spayed or neutered and vaccinated. When you adopt a barn cat, we will go over with you how to acclimate your new cat to their new surroundings and make them feel at home. There is NO adoption fee but donations are always welcome.
When you adopt a barn cat, you agree to give them:
• Shelter in a barn, outbuilding, stable or similar structure
• Daily food and water—cats cannot live on mousing alone
• Long-term vet care, especially if they become injured or sick
• A secure place to keep them for the first 2-3 weeks, while they acclimate to their new home. This can be a tack room or any secure indoor enclosure from which they can not escape.
