The stand can be set up here at the Adoption Center any Saturday or Sunday from 11-4pm, and staffed by children of all ages (accompanied by a parent or guardian). It’s also designed to be portable, so can be taken to offsite events, schools, or even your own neighborhood.

Barn Cat Program
If you have a barn or stable, you can help save a cat! Although the majority of cats can easily live as indoor house pets, sometimes we have cats whose only alternative is to live as a barn cat. Adopting a barn cat can help you control a rodent population in your barn, and will provide companionship for you and your other barn animals. Click here to learn more about our Barn Cat Program, or email Kelly at email@example.com.
