Some cats who end up at BLHS cannot adapt to indoor living. They may be feral (i.e., born and raised in the wild), or under-socialized and prefer little to no human contact or are friendly but never been indoors and prefer the outdoor life. Whatever the reason, we still believe these cats deserve a happy life and that they can be placed with families who value them as much as we do.

Why adopt a barn cat?

Adopting a barn cat can be a mutually beneficial relationship – you will be saving the life of a healthy cat, while they will help scare off small, pesky rodents! To people who qualify, barn cat adoption is FREE.

Barn cats are:

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date on vaccinations

How to adopt a barn cat

You’ll need to provide:

  • Safe, permanent shelter with an area of weather-proof covering
  • Continuous fresh food and water
  • Veterinary care when needed
  • Acclimation time and area

To ensure the cats acclimate and do not run away, they must be kept in a large homing crate in their new environment for a minimum of 3 weeks. Then they should be given free range of their new home.
