Working Cat Program

If you have a barn, stable, brewery, warehouse, plant nursery, etc. you can help save a cat!

While the majority of cats can easily live as indoor house pets, sometimes we have cats who prefer to live as a working cat.  Cats in our Working Cat Program, previously known as our Barn Cat Program, fall into one of these categories:

Please note that we do not adopt indoor house cats who are suitable to be household companions into barns, warehouses, etc..

Adopting a working cat can help you control a rodent population while also making a great companion! If you are looking for a working cat, they may also provide companionship for your barn animals.  If you do not have other working cats, you may want to consider adopting a pair through our program!

What we provide
When you adopt a cat through our Working Cat Program, the cat will be:

We will review guidelines to help you acclimate your cat to your environment in a safe manner.

What you provide

We also request an adoption donation which will help offset some of the medical costs.

Things to consider
Adopting a cat through the MSPCA Working Cat program can help save the life of a cat who may not have other options.  However, the care of a working cat is still an important responsibility.  You will be assuming care for the cat for its lifetime, which may be as much as 15 or 20 years.   In exchange for providing the essentials of food & water, medical care, and shelter, your working cat will earn its keep by helping to control the rodent population in your building!

Please fill out our survey to adopt a working cat and learn more about the program.

Some of our working cats are now listed on our adoptable animals page!  Look for cats with the word “Barn/Working Cat” in their name to meet some of our adoptable working cats!
