My story

WORKING CATS PROGRAM

These cats come to our shelter from a variety of untenable circumstances: born feral, abandoned by owners, hoarder cases, regressive city ordinances and unsafe environments to include inhospitable neighbors. One major trait they have is they are un-socialized-having an innate fear of humans. This fear renders them not suitable for regular adoption consideration.
We try to make their stay at the shelter reflect their outdoor living past by providing a safe, comfortable Catio habitat to lessen their stress, but it is not a long-term solution for these cats.

From time immemorial, cats have been referred to as "ratters" or "mousers" and have been prized for their ability to control the rodent population in both rural and urban settings. This innate ability gave these cats saving grace.

Our Working Cats Program has been designed to allow these cats to barter this skill for room and board under the supervision of an understanding care giver on ranches, farms, wineries, agricultural operations, warehouses of all types as well as neighborhood backyards. The benefit of this program to the shelter is that we can put into action our philosophy that ALL cats, irregardless of their past situations, deserve the chance to live their best life. Our Program allows us to place these cats in a mutually beneficial environment. The adopter gets 24/7 natural pest control and the cats get food, water, shelter and safety.

In order to ensure a good fit between adopters and the cats, we have a thought out process that enhances the potential for success. This process starts with an adopter application followed by an on-site grounds inspection and finally a contractual agreement that outlines steps to ensure a successful outcome.

The cats are assigned in sets of two or more. This ensures a better chance of adjustment to their new environment. The adopter gets cats that have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated from parasites and diseases if present, microchipped and ear-tipped.

If you have a business or living situation that could benefit from having one of our working cats on your property, please contact us at: tnr@psanimalshelter.org

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

ADOPTION The Compassionate Choice. Choosing to adopt an animal rather than buying from a breeder or pet shop is the easiest and best thing you can do to help reduce the number of unwanted pets. Shelters across the country are filled with wonderful dogs and cats looking for safe, loving homes. Each and every one of them deserves to be loved. Bringing a new animal into your home is a big decision. We ask all potential adopters or "guardians" to complete a comprehensive questionnaire and then meet with one of our trained adoption counselors who will help find the right pet for your lifestyle. Because your new pet is an important part of your family, we encourage you to bring ALL family members in to meet him or her, including your dog(s) if you are considering adopting one of shelter dogs. The adoption fees are $50-$100 for a cat and $100-$180 for a dog. This low fee includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, a registered micro-chip, and a wellness check.

More about this shelter

The Palm Springs Animal Shelter is an open-admission municipal shelter serving the City of Palm Springs. The shelter is operated by Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, a non-profit organization dedicated to building a community responsible for pet stewardship and humane treatment of animals. The public/private partnership has created a compassionate and progressive shelter that serves as safe haven for both highly adoptable animals as well as those who require behavioral training or medical treatment before they can be adopted into loving homes. Although we spend time with each animal to prepare it for adoption, we cannot be sure how a pet with behave with other pets or with children outside of the shelter.
