We routinely have unsocialized and feral cats come into our care. These are cats that have lived their lives outdoors and are not used to being indoors. As such, they are not good candidates for our regular adoption program. We have recently started a barn cat program to give these cats a second chance at life. If you’re in need of eco-friendly pest control, or interested in helping these cats by giving them a safe place to live outdoors, apply here.
Who are the Barn Cats?
Cats who are unsocial or fearful of people, but prefer the company of other animals
Cats who are social, but too feisty for interactions with people in a home setting
Please note that we do not adopt cats who are suitable to be household companions to barns, only those cats without other options.
How can you help?
Do you have a barn, shed, or other outdoor structure away from busy roads and traffic that these cats can live in? Without homes like these, there is nowhere else for these cats to go. If you have such a place to offer, please consider adopting one (or more) of our barn cats. Types of places where a barn cat could work are:
What we provide:
All of our barn cats are 16 weeks of age or older, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. We will also provide counseling on how to best acclimate your cat(s) to their new home as well an acclimation cage, if needed.
What you provide:
Shelter in a barn, stable, garage, warehouse, winery, brewery or an outbuilding
Long-term veterinary care
Daily food and water (the cats cannot live on rodents alone)
A secure place to keep the cat(s) for at least the first two weeks (ideally 4 weeks) so the cat(s) can acclimate to the new surroundings. An enclosure like a feed or tack room would work great. We can loan you an acclimation cage if you need one.
The adoption fee for a barn cat is $25 to help us cover some of their medical needs. We request you consider adopting two, since many of them thrive in each other’s company. The adoption fee on the second barn cat is waived.
We almost always have barn cats available for adoption. If you are interested in adopting them, please complete the adoption application and our Barn Cat Program Manager, Dacia Foster, will follow up with you in an email sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
