My Story

'Having a problem with Mouse Management in your barn? We're here to help! We're working cats, and Rodent Relief is our area of expertise. Just move us into your barn and let us show our stuff. There are many of us, and we want to go to our new homes/job sites in teams of three or more. Some of us are friendly; some of us will be forever feral. But we're all beautiful and very good at what we do. All we ask of our new employers is regular meals every day and a few kind words. The Howard County Cat Club will deliver us anywhere within a day's round trip of the Baltimore, MD/Washington DC area. We'll need to be confined in our new location for two weeks, so the Howard County Cat Club will loan you crates if you need them.'

Adoption Process

Potential forever families must complete an application and sign a contract. Our contract stipulates that you will NOT declaw and that the cat will be returned to us if things don't work out. Cats who are adopted together must be returned together -- they may not be separated. Our contract also stipulates that you will feed wet food -- we do not want our cats to have dry food-only diets. We DO adopt to safe, responsible indoor/outdoor homes. And we almost always have ferals who must be relocated to barn homes.

About the Rescue GroupLearn More

The Howard County Cat Club is a registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit no kill cat rescue. Our mission is to keep cats out of shelters because we believe that no cat deserves to live in a cage, or to be put to death because it is no longer wanted or in the way. We operate a behavior hotline to help cats and their human companions resolve their differences. We advise people who are trying to place their no-longer-wanted cats in loving new homes, and we foster cats in our "group home" when they have no place else to go.
