Farm Livin'

Hard working rodent managers seek a chance at life on a farm!

The outcome for many cats in animal shelters is grim- call it deadly. In order to save the lives of more of the thousands of cats and kittens that come into Spokane area shelters each year we created our Farm Livin' program in 2009. This is a cooperative program with area farm homes that need barn cats for rodent control.

Farmers and rural barn homes may apply to SpokAnimal to receive free cats! All of our Farm Livin' cats are vaccinated and spayed or neutered, and will go to their new barn homes with a free bag of food. The new owners agree to provide them with a barn or farm building for shelter, and food to supplement what they catch.

The cats are 3 months and older, and all are accustomed to independent living. Some kitties may be friendly and others may be feral. After the adjustment period in their new homes, most will stay in place. So far, our Farm Livin' program has saved the lives of over 1,700 cats!

If you are in need of a barn cat, or would like more information, please call Kitty City at (509) 534-8133 x 207.
