We are devoted to saving the lives of all cats that arrive at IndyHumane and believe that all cats can find appropriate and safe placement options when we work together with caring community members. We have not euthanized (put down) a cat for behavior reasons in nearly 5 years.

Not all cats are happy being confined inside a home and this Barn and Working Cat program gives those cats a safe option. The program also finds safe and appropriate placement options for shelter cats that have behavior or personality quirks that don't make them ideal as indoor pets, such as extremely poor litter box habits, mouthing/nipping, or shyness/fear of people. Cats could be placed in big barns, small barns, sheds with a cat door, riding and boarding stables, garages, offices, and landscaping nurseries.

Cats can often be good rodent deterrent (though there is no guarantee that any cat will kill or chase mice/chipmunks).

Any cat that is part of the "Barn Cat Program" will be spay/neutered, vaccinated (rabies and FVRCP combo), and will have their left ear tipped (notched) which is the universal sign that a feral/outdoor cat has been spay/neutered. Interested barn or warehouse owners must agree to continue to care for the cats (food, water, and medical care) for the remainder of their lives.

The program is in need of safe locations for cats. If you could consider adding two or (more!) barn cats, we would love to talk to you! Please complete the following interest form and a staff member will contact you with more information - www.indyhumane.org/barncats
