Working Cats will work for (cat) food!

Got a rodent problem in your barn, horse stable, warehouse, garage or garden shed?

You need a working cat!

Asheville Humane Society has healthy cats who would love to be put to work! These cats are unsuitable to be house pets but would flourish in a barn, horse stable, warehouse, garage, garden shed or other appropriate indoor/outdoor location.

All cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. You only need to provide daily food and water, protection from the elements and long-term care. After a short period of secure confinement, the cats should accept their new barn home.

In return for your care, working cats will help keep rodents away from grain and food storage areas. Not only will you enjoy watching these cats work, you will be providing them a much-needed home.

And, because these cats are already spayed or neutered, you won’t have to worry about litters of kittens appearing!

“We’re animal lovers but we’re realistic that not all animals are suitable for being house pets. At Ramsey Dairy Farms, we have working cats so we can ensure our feed and grain is rodent-free. We applaud Asheville Humane Society for such an innovative, life-saving program!”
