Thank you for your interest in our Barn Cat Adoption Program! Some cats that come through our doors don't thrive in a home environment, and would prefer a place where they can keep to themselves while also providing wonderful pest control. *All of our cats are not eligible for our Barn Cat Program. We will post any cats that qualify on the page below.
Marcel -Male - 2.5 years old Marcel will come around during feeding time, but doesn't like being touched or handled.
Johnnie - Male - 3.5 years old Johnnie is okay with some attention, but must be approached slowly
Dude - Male - 1 year old Dude prefers to be left alone overall.
What is the Adoption Fee? There is a small adoption fee of $30 to help us cover some of the vetting costs. Once you adopt a barn cat you become responsible for any veterinary care, food, water and shelter. What vet work will they have done? Any cat that you adopt from us will already be spayed/neutered and up to date on their rabies and feline distemper combo vaccinations. What do barn cats require? Barn cats require shelter in a barn, garage, shed, etc. in a rural area where they will be safe. They will need water and cat food on a daily basis. Ideally one’s property should be at least half a mile away from a busy road to help care for their safety. Will they run away? Feral cats transferred to a new environment require a 2-4 week acclimation period to ensure they stay on the property. We can provide a crate to borrow for the acclimation period. You will feed and water the feral cats in the cage for this short period before releasing. Why do I need to keep the cat in the crate for two to four weeks? This is necessary as it teaches the cat where its new home is, where the food is, who brings them the food, and it gives them a general understanding of their new home. If the cats are not confined for this time period, it is likely that they will run off. Typically, they then get lost and are met with a sad end.
