Barn Buddies - Cat adoption program

Barn Buddies Program

Not every cat who comes into the shelter is suitable to life in a home.  Not every cat enjoys to be picked up or pet.  But this doesn't mean that these healthy animals can't fulfill a role--how about as mousers?

Everybody loves a barn cat--they keep the pests away, they are low-maintenance, and sometimes, pets and purrs can be a bonus.  But dealing with litters and litters of kittens each spring is not worth it.  We all know about the problem with pet overpopulation, so let's break the cycle.  Every cat we adopt out will be spayed/neutered, given current vaccinations, de-wormed and treated for fleas and ticks. 

Adopting a Barn Cat gives a not-so-typically-adoptable cat a second chance--and it puts them to work! Let these cats help you control rodent and pest populations in a non-toxic, natural way.  All while SAVING LIVES!

Remember, Barn Cats are not just for barns--garages, feed rooms, wineries, shops, supply rooms, cellars, anywhere that rodents may be! Businesses or private citizens--if you have a need for a cat, we can help you find the right match.
