Barn Cat Progam
Barn Cat Program
This is a wonderful and humane way to save our feral cats from the gas chamber and also put them to work doing natural cat things! These cats make ideal residents for farm barns or sheds, horse stables and barns, or other suitable locations with outdoor shelter options. It's the eco-friendly, green solution to your mouse and vermin problems. A feral cat will keep your property rodent free for the price of daily cat food. Owners of barns are screened and trained once they are in our program. They provide food and water for the kitties living in their barn. The kitties are already spayed or neutred, vaccinated and healthy and there is no adoption fee. The Kitties' scent alone will keep the mice out. Similar to Barn Cats, warehouse owners often take care of feral cats and the cats scent and hunting keep the mice away
Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about our TNR & Barn Cat initiative or can volunteer to help us set it up and run it!
TNR - Trap-Neuter-Return Program
Trap Neuter and Return (TNR)
is a program successfully deployed throughout the nation to keep the feral cat population in check. Caregivers take care of their cat colony (food and outdoor shelter) - the cats in the colony are happy and their numbers eventually decline - there is no more breeding. Extermination of feral cats only fails because the population builds right back up again. TNR is humane for the kitties and it works! The cats are trapped, neutered and vaccinated. Any medical issues are treated before they are returned. Colony caregivers are trained and we help supply the food!
