How It Works
We are looking for cat lovers who have a barn or other secure outdoor structures that are interested in adopted cats that are not suitable for life inside of a house or are unhappy living inside. Cat temperaments range from feral to friendly. Click Here for an Application, and give us a call at 979-775-5755 to inquire about barn cat availability.
Cats placed into our Barn Cat Program fall into three main categories:
- Cats whose litter box habits are not consistent enough to be inside only cats and/or who have lived or spent time outside per their previous owner.
- Cats who were found as strays and who may be too independent to appreciate living in a house.
- Cats who are shy/fearful of people and prefer the company of other cats and animals.
You may be a homeless cat’s last chance.
Barn placement is the last chance at life for these cats. Without barn adopters, they have nowhere else to go. If you have a working barn or 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 for adoption to barns are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and FIV/FeLV tested. When you adopt a barn cat, we will go over with you how to acclimate your new cat to the barn and make them her at home.
Barn Cats have an adoption fee of $25. This helps to cover some of their required medical costs such as:
- Rabies Vaccination
- FVRCP Vaccination
- FeLV/FIV Test
What You Need
The farm or barn owners who adopt the cats agree to give them:
- Shelter in a barn, outbuilding, warehouse, or stable
- Daily food and water- cats cannot live on mousing alone.
- Long-term veterinary care, as needed (they’re neutered and vaccinated now).
- A secure place to keep them for the first 2-3 weeks, while they acclimate to your barn. This can be a tack room or any secure indoor enclosure that they cannot escape from.
