Animals for adoption
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 setting.
The adoption fee for barn cats is $40. Your cat will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and tattooed prior to leaving the Calgary Humane Society.
Barn Cat 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 two 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 you move to a new location, you are responsible for making arrangements for your cat(s). Suitable arrangements include bringing your cat(s) with you or finding another caregiver to accept responsibility for the cat(s). If another person becomes responsible for the ongoing care and welfare of the cat(s), you must officially 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 on the plan to have cat(s) on the premise.
If you are interested in adopting one or more cats to live in a rural, farm, or shop-like setting, please call (403) 205-4455 ext 6503 or email email@example.com to be placed on the Adoption Request List.
