got mice? adopt a barn cat

Animal Services is launching a new Barn Cat Program. Under this program, cats that aren't suitable for traditional pet adoption will be considered for our Barn Cat Program. The adoption fee is $50 and includes the spay/neuter, microchip, initial vaccines and parasite treatment. Barn cats can be placed in a barn, a warehouse or a farm that needs rodent control. As part of the adoption agreement, the adopter must agree to provide a safe warm shelter, food, clean water and veterinary care and must live outside of city limits in a municipality where cats are not prohibited from running loose.

To adopt a Barn Cat, contact the Animal Services Centre at 807-684-2156.
