Barn Cats

Barn Cats are semi-feral and totally free thanks to community support. Make a DONATION to FOCA Today.

FoCA has cats who are ideal for barns, sheds, garages, farms, horse stables or other locations with outdoor shelter. Make a difference in a cats’ life and get a companion to keep your area pest-free.

While it’s true cats often like a relaxed lifestyle, there are those who, much like dogs, love to work and be in the great outdoors. It’s a great way to address rodent and pest control naturally. Some barn cats in Monroe, MI are socialized (friendly) and some are feral (untamed) but all of them serve an important purpose around your barn / garage.

The  411 on the Barn Cats Program

  • Barn cats may be feral, socialized or otherwise unsuitable for adoption in a conventional home setting
  • You promise to provide shelter and daily food and water
  • Barn cats discourage rodents and other vermin
  • These cats provide companionship for horses and other farm animals
  • All barn cats come spayed/neutered and vaccinated
  • FoCA will come to acclimate the cat to your barn
  • While there is no fee, we appreciate a donation of $100 to cover medical costs, if possible

In addition to barn cats, FoCA also runs a free-roaming (feral/stray) cat program for those un-owned community cats who live outside full-time. So, if you find a cat that’s living in your area that’s unattended they might also qualify discount spay/neuter.

If you’d like to learn more about barn cats, or any of our other programs, contact us today.
