CHS BARN CATS

The Calgary Humane Society recognizes that not all cats are suitable for a home environment and will, under special circumstances, adopt cats to individuals wishing to provide these special cats with an opportunity to live in a rural, farm or shop type setting.

Fee: $30

Adopter Requirements:

  • Cats adopted to live in a rural, barn or shop type setting must have access to food, shelter, water, regular vet care, love and attention.
  • Barns or warehouses must be heated or well insulated and these cats must not be expected to fend for themselves.  We recommend that 2 cats are adopted together so they have a companion in the outdoor environment
  • The adopter will be the registered owner and must take full responsibility for the cat(s).  If the adopter leaves the place where the cat(s) is living, he/she must make arrangements for the cat(s).  Suitable arrangements include taking the cat with him/her or finding another caregiver to accept responsibility for the ongoing care and welfare of the cat(s) and transfer ownership
  • In the case of a business, Calgary Humane Society will ensure the landlord of the premise as well as the Manager of the business agrees of the plan to have cat(s) on the premise.

What’s included?

Your cat(s) will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed prior to leaving the Calgary Humane Society.

If you are interested in adopting a cat(s) to live in a rural, farm or shop like setting please call (403) 205-4455 ext 6503 or email adopt@calgaryhumane.ca to be placed on the Adoption Request List.
