Adopt a Barn Cat
Hoping to adopt a healthy, sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped barn cat? We can help. A barn cat can provide several benefits to a farm or rural property, including helping to control rodent populations. These cats are considered low-maintenance pets, requiring minimal attention and care; however, these special kitties do need access to a reliable shelter, daily food and water and must be with a buddy (or two)*.
Cat temperaments range from feral to friendly. These are working cats who are accustomed to outdoor life. They prefer minimal to no human contact, and will happily tend to any mouse, mole, chipmunk or vermin problems for the small cost of a bowl of cat food and fresh water. They will also need the commitment to provide them with as needed veterinary care as well as shelter in a garage or barn.
*ECCHA requires all barn cats to be adopted in pairs or as many as you like as long as it’s at least two if you are starting a new colony.
If you would only like to adopt one cat, you must have an established colony on your property.
