We need ranchs, barns, and shops for Barn Cats.
Due to the cooler weather, there has been a spike in the need to relocate semi-to-feral cats in our area. We seek safe shelter for these semi-to-feral cats on a ranch or private property with adequate shelter from the elements, and water and supplemental food provided. There is no adoption fee for barn cats. The Humane Society seeks to build a network of receptive barn homes and facilitate placement. Please call us today at 208-756-4100 if you have space and are willing to keep barn cats.
We can lend live traps and help fund the sterilization of feral cats; but we cannot accept and shelter feral cats at the Salmon Animal Shelter. We ask that you take them back to your property from which they were trapped after sterilization, especially when we have no receptive barn/ranch/shop homes available for them.
Cats placed through our barn cat program are different than the companionable pet cats available for adoption from our shelter. These cats have no other placement options because for various reasons they will not thrive as companion pets. There is no adoption fee for barn cats. As we cannot accept feral cats at the shelter for the same reason – we seek to build a network of receptive barn homes and facilitate placement.
