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
  • Microchipped 
  • Up-to-date on vaccinations
  • Ear-tipped

We strongly recommend having 2 or more barn cats because they keep each other company and can huddle together for warmth in cold weather.

Since each cat is unique, HSSJC can’t guarantee anything about the cat’s temperament. Some may never want human contact, while others may eventually seek attention.


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.
