    Also Available for Adoption

    Working cats aren't technically pets, but you can get them from our shelter.The cats in our Working Cat Program are those who are unable to be handled or are not suited to life in a traditional home. They will roam your yard, warehouse, barn, or property, helping you with your local rodent population. They are not social with people, preferring to keep humans at a safe distance. Click the link above for more details.
