Barn Cat Program
Thanks for your interest in helping to save the lives of our communities feral cats! Many people in urban neighborhoods request that we trap and remove unwanted feral cats each month. The fate of a feral cat is more often than not euthanasia. The WPCAS's Barn Cat Program is structured to help remove feral cats from urban areas and relocate them to more functional environments.
Barn cats go out in pairs, we can do 2, 4, 6 etc. depending on the size of property and number of barns/shelters on your property. You do not get to choose the sex or color of cats you get. The cats are feral and are not handled prior to their surgery and release to their new homes. All cats will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and have an ear docked prior to being released. An ear dock is a procedure that is done during surgery where a small V shape is taken out of the tip of the right ear. This is done for identification purposes, it lets you and others know that the cat has already been altered. Even though your barn cat will hunt your rodents, snakes, and other small pests it must still be fed and have access to water.

Barn cats may be picked up from the shelter if prior arrangements have been made with staff and if you can properly accommodate them. We will provide (when available):
