HSoP Barn Buddy Program

Current Barn cats looking for homes

This lovely trio is looking for a barn or shop to call their home. They came in as feral kittens, and unfortunately never tamed down to be house kitties. They are not aggressive, and can be picked up, but would do best in a working-style home.

Sidon-DSH neutered, male. 6 months old
Mipha-DSH spayed, female. 6 months old

Ruta-DSH spayed, female. 6 months old

Barn Buddy adoption fee is $25.00, and includes the cat being spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, and felv tested. If you would like to adopt this working trio, the adoption fee would be $50.00.

Barn cats help to earn their keep by:

Controlling the rodent population

Reducing your need to use mouse traps or poisons  

Saving you money on feed grain spoilage or loss

Requirements:
  • 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, Felv test, 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.
