  • Age: Adult

  • Hair: Short
Feral/barn cats are great micers! We have feral cats available for adoption that were rescued as strays and from other situations where they received no socialization, such as too many cats and/or hoarding. Feral cats are “wild” offspring of domestic cats and are primarily the result of pet owners’ abandonment or failure to spay and neuter their animals, allowing them to breed uncontrolled. A feral cat is an unsocialized cat. Either he was born outside and never lived with a human family, or he is a house cat that has strayed from home or was abandoned and over time has become profoundly distrustful and afraid of humans. Feral cats avoid human contact. A feral cat cannot be picked up by a human and feral cats are very difficult to catch. Even though the cat is wild, it deserves to live. If taken to a shelter, a feral cat will be killed. These cats are no trouble and need homes just like any other rescued cats. Feral kittens are easily tamed and adopted, but feral adult cats are usually terrified of humans. Some can be tamed if someone is willing to work with socializing them, giving them time to adjust, one on one attention, TLC and play. These cats are healthy and have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, received flea/tick treatment and tested negative for feline leukemia virus. Since they have been spayed/neutered, they generally get along with other cats. They stay away and have no contact or interaction with humans. They might come near at feeding time, but they cannot be picked up or petted. They’re ready and waiting for new, safe, forever homes. Since most people do not want them as house cats, feral cats are ideal residents for a home at a farm, stable, barn, or other suitable outdoor environment with shelter where they are protected and/or safe from coyotes and other predators. Caretaker responsibilities for feral cats include providing daily food and water, protection from the elements and veterinary care. The cat will need a brief period of adjustment. Moving to a new home is stressful for anyone, cats included! After a short stay (several weeks) in secure confinement, the cat will accept its new home and be chasing mice out of your grain with enthusiasm!!! It is recommended and usually works best if 2-3 feral cats are adopted together so that they have companions.

Adoption fee is $25 each. Please share/network to help find homes for these cats. If interested, please email us at with a little info about you and the home you would provide, where you live, etc. Thank you.

About Rescue and Rehome, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

"We are the little rescue that animals, one animal at a time." Rescue and Rehome is an official 501(c)3 tax exempt organization/public charity; employer I.D. 45-5218260. Contributions and donations are tax deductible. Our small private no-kill rescue is a CA nonprofit public benefit corporation dedicated to rescuing homeless and needy dogs and cats. Our goal is to find good, permanent homes for our rescued animals so that they never end up in a bad situation ever again. We are a foster group-type rescue that does not have a physical location for a shelter. Space and finances are limited. Our animals live in a home environment. We take in as many animals as we can reasonably and financially accommodate and find new, loving, permanent homes for them. If a new home cannot be found, we care for the animal for the remainder of its lifetime. All of our rescued animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, etc. and receive any needed veterinary care. Many rescued animals are sick or injured and require expensive veterinary care. In addition to veterinary care, there are many expenses involved in running a rescue, including quality food, supplies and gasoline. As a nonprofit business, our goal is to operate in the black and increase fundraising. We depend on donations in order to continue our efforts on behalf of needy and homeless animals. We receive no outside funding and all expenses are out-of-pocket except for any adoption fees we collect and/or donations we receive. We are thankful and grateful for those who donate their time, hard-earned cash and items we use on a regular basis. We appreciate those who send monthly checks and make regular monetary donations in support of our efforts. We cannot do it without you. We ask those who are able to please consider donating on a regular basis and/or contribute something on our wish list for our four-legged friends. Monetary donations may be made by check or via paypal using our email address of Follow us and "like" us on facebook at

The public is aware that the local shelters are high kill and, therefore, they turn to private rescues with requests to take in their animals. We are overwhelmed and usually full because the fact is that the number of rescued animals taken in always exceeds the number of animals adopted out. In addition we have a number of animals that are less desirable and hard-to-place, such as ill or senior, that likely will remain here for the remainder of their lives. It takes time, maybe months or even years, to find a new home for a rescued dog or cat and sometimes they never find another home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Animals are shown at Petco in Menifee, 30464 Haun Road (off 215 Freeway at Newport Road) on Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and on other days by appointment. If you are stopping by to see us at Petco on a Saturday and you are interested in a specific animal, let us know via email at to make sure we bring that dog or cat to Petco.

Our Adoption Process...

Our goal is to find good, permanent homes for our rescued dogs and cats where the new owner will be able to care for the animal for its lifetime (15-20 years). We do not want our rescued animals to end up in a bad situation ever again. We are looking for adopters who want to adopt a rescued animal and give it a second chance at a good home and happy life. New homes will be determined based on the potential new home and the best interest of the dog or cat. In order for the adoption to be successful, we take into consideration whether the pet is a good match for the new guardian, his/her lifestyle and home environment. If interested in meeting one of our available pets, we arrange a day/time to meet the pet, and, then, if the person is interested in adopting the pet, we require an application and adoption contract to be completed. A nominal adoption fee is requested to help reimburse for a portion of expenses of rescue and rehabilitation. We deliver the animal to its new home so that we can see where the animal will be living and to get an idea of how it will get along in its new home. We follow-up to inquire how the adoption is going.
