Will Work for (cat) Food!

Got a rodent problem in your barn, horse stable, warehouse, garage or garden shed? You need a KHS Working Cat!

Kentucky Humane Society has healthy cats who would love to be put to work! All cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. You only need to provide daily food and water, protection from the elements and long-term care. After a short period of secure confinement, the cats should accept their new barn home.

In return for your care, Working Cats will help keep rodents away from grain and food storage areas. Not only will you enjoy watching these cats work, you will be providing them a much-needed home.

And, because these cats are already spayed or neutered, you won’t have to worry about litters of kittens appearing!

Questions or want more information? Contact the KHS Working Cats Program at cats@kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 ext. 2703.

How to Adopt a Working Cat

Working Cats are cats who are not appropriate for home adoption but who thrive in suitable indoor/outdoor homes, such as barns, warehouses or garages. We do not actively accept cats into this program. Instead, this program offers cats who are deemed not appropriate for home life another route to adoption. To inquire about how to adopt a Working Cat, email the KHS Cat Coordinator at cats@kyhumane.org or call 366-3355 ext. 2703 or go to our Working Cat Application.

We apologize! Our pet listing is temporarily down. We are working to fix this.
