Working Cat Program

We often need to rehome cats that either prefer an outdoors-only lifestyle or came from an outside cat colony. Our working cats can provide great rodent control to your farm/outdoor buildings/home.  The working cat adoptions are completed on an “as needed” basis when the shelter needs to safely relocate feral, semi-feral, and “friendly, but prefers to be outside” cats. 


All working cats are spayed or neutered, tested for FELV/FIV, and vaccinated against rabies. Please contact us if you have room in your heart and buildings for any experienced mousers. Working cats are great pest control for private businesses and warehouses! We operate off a waiting list, so please fill out an adoption application so we can pair you up with the perfect cat when we have one.

If you have outdoor cats you are hoping to rehome through our working cat program, please email
