Working Cat Adoption Program

When it comes to saving the lives of pets, we are a full-service organization! Rescuing and adopting out less-sociable cats as warehouse, farm, brewery, or backyard buddies is one of our most successful programs here at the CASPCA. All of our available working cats are healthy, spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. And, there is NO adoption fee for these cats!

We do our best to prevent working cats from ever entering the shelter, as their quality of life would suffer in an indoor environment. Parties interested in adopting a working cat should contact our Community Cat Coordinator at tnr@caspca.org or by calling 434.906.1797.

What the cats provide:
Working cats won’t sit on your lap or cuddle on your pillow, but they are wonderful workers providing great natural rodent control in your barn, shed, garage or warehouse.  They are the “green” choice, and no job is too small!

What you provide:
Daily food, water, a comfortable outdoor shelter, and vet care as needed.

What we provide:
-Use of a temporary enclosure (crate) to help the cats transition to your home.  For the cats to learn their new home, they should be confined to an escape-proof enclosure for 2-4 weeks while they acclimate to their new surroundings.

-Use of a humane trap, if needed, for future vet visits.
