CATS THAT QUALIFY FOR THE PROGRAM:
  • Cats who are under-socialized and fearful of people
  • Cats who don’t want physical contact with people
  • Cats who prefer the companionship of other cats instead of people
  • Cats who are accustomed to being outside and cannot adjust to life indoors
ADVANTAGES TO HAVING AN OUTDOOR CAT:
  • Cats are spayed/neutered, so they can no longer reproduce
  • Cats have set territories and will discourage new cats from coming onto the property
  • Cats will keep the mice and other vermin population low
  • You will be giving a deserving cat a home
WHAT YOU MUST PROVIDE:
  • Barn, workshop, or other outdoor building with indoor/outdoor access
  • Willingness to confine cat inside building for a minimum of two weeks with food, water, and litter box — this helps them to become accustomed to their new home so they don’t run away
  • Daily supply of dry cat food and fresh water
  • Monitoring the well-being and safety of the cats

If you or anyone you know is able to provide these deserving cats with a outdoor location to call home, please complete our Working Cats Contact Form and return it to us. Our adoption staff with be in touch with you ASAP.
