What We Do

How You Can Help

Please Note:  Because we are a very small group of volunteers, we must limit our barn program scope.  As a result we do not have the resources to relocate your cats.  Our website has been set up to find homes for the cats that our organization already has in foster homes and cats that we have agreed to move from dangerous locations as part of our Trap, Neuter, Return program. We hope to expand our program in the future.   


If you are looking to relocate cats to another outdoor environment, please use the information in this website and search the internet to learn how to relocate cats successfully. Moving cats to a new place takes careful planning and must involve confinement at the new location.  Please inform yourself before attempting to relocate cats.  Failure to properly relocate cats will most likely mean death for the cats.

Because of the volume of outdoor, community cats, the best option is to spay / neuter, vaccinate and then return them to their original location where they will be fed and monitored under the watchful eye of a caregiver. Sometimes we cannot return the cats to their environment for the following reasons:  no caretaker / feeder, dangerous environment, threat of harm by neighbors, or outdoor cat is friendly but has a behavioral problem that prevents them from being an indoor pet.   We work diligently to find new, outdoor, safe homes for these cats that are safe.  In most cases these cats go to barn homes, but given the right circumstances and dwelling, cats may be located to sheds, outbuildings, and other dwellings.

What We Ask Of You


When adopting barn cats from us, we ask you to agree to the following:

  • A secure place to keep the cats confined for 2-4 weeks while they adjust to their new environment and to you.
  • A commitment to providing your new cats a forever home.
  • Daily food and water. Cats generally do not eat the rodents they kill.  Without getting proper nutrition, the cats will not have the energy to catch rodents – a well-fed cat will catch more rodents than a hungry cat.  Most cats love wet food and will wait for it at feeding time.  Please consider giving your cats some wet food as it acts as a deterrent to them running away looking for it elsewhere.
  • Adequate safe and warm shelter in barns buildings or stables, to keep cats safe from predators and warm in cold weather.
  • Long-term veterinary care as applicable.  Annual vaccines are critical to keeping the cats in good health, and all out door cats should be dewormed annually.  Vet care may also be needed if the cat becomes injured or sick.

Cat Of the Month: Percy

Percy Bysshe tmb

O, world! O, LIFE!

The winged words on which my soul would pierce

Into the height of Love's rare Universe,
I pant, I sink, I tremble... O -- Hi THERE, folks!  

It's me! Percy (Bysshe)!  Ya caught me waxing poetic!

Dog Of the Month: Oboe

Oboe is a very loving and sweet dog and would be best suited for someone who has a yard or an active adopter who could take him on runs or play throw-and-retrieve games. He also loves water. He will step right into the bathtub and wait for you to give him a shower.

Senior Of the Month: Pebbles
