If you have a barn or stable, you can save a cat and control your rodent population at the same time! Sometimes cats cannot live as household companions, yet make excellent barn cats and thrive in that environment. These cats may be shy or fearful of people and prefer the company of other cats and animals. Generally speaking, barn cats placed through the Wisconsin Humane Society's barn cat program are independent cats who prefer to limit their interactions with humans. However, the degree to which they keep their distance varies from cat to cat and may change over time. Barn cats often develop strong bonds with other cats, which is why the Wisconsin Humane Society recommends that at least two cats be placed together. If you are interested in adopting barn cats, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is a private nonprofit organization whose mission is to build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness. For more than 125 years, WHS has been saving the lives of animals in need.
