Barn Cat Program

Do you have a barn, stable, warehouse, or other outdoor property and want to help out cats in need? Our Barn Cat Placement program provides homes to cats who will not do well/nor enjoy living in a typical home but can thrive and live a happy life in an outdoor setting! Learn more about barn cats and our program below. 

What is a Barn Cat?

Generally speaking, barn cats placed through the Humane Society of Sheboygan County’s barn cat program are independent cats who prefer to limit their interactions with humans. However, the degree to which they keep their distance varies from cat to cat and may change over time. Even those whoprefer to keep their distance may develop bonds with their caregiver after positive encounters with people.

What We Provide:

All barn cats available for adoption are spayed/neutered, ear-tipped and vaccinated.

When you adopt barn cats, we will also provide you with more information at the time of pick-up.

What You Need:

  • Shelter in a barn, outbuilding, or stable
  • Daily food and water – cats cannot live on mice alone
  • Ability to provide veterinary care, as needed
