HSoP Barn Buddy Program

Available Barn Cats: 

  • There are no barn cats available at this time. If you would like to welcome a barn cat onto your property, please give us a call at (208) 883-1166 so we know to contact you when a barn cat does become available. 

Barn cats help to earn their keep by:

  • Controlling the rodent population

  • Reducing your need to use mouse trap/poisons  

  • Saving you money on feed grain spoilage/loss

  • We do not place cats that are best suited to be house pets and we don’t place kittens under age four months as barn cats, unless they are feral/semi-feral.

  • A secure, dry barn or building for shelter with heat source is required.

  • As a non-profit organization, we appreciate a donation to cover the cost of the spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, de-worming and other needed preventative care. We ask for a $25.00 donation.

  • The commitment and ability to keep the cats confined to a stall, small room, or crate for two to four weeks (depends on the cats and the barn) to acclimate them to their new environment before release.

  • A constant supply of dry food and fresh water.

  • The willingness to trap the cats to provide licensed veterinary care in the event of a severe injury or illness.
