The Regional Animal Shelter is kicking off a new proactive cat management program known as “Working Whiskers” cat adoption program.
This program will help less-social and feral cats that are not suitable for household pets find a home, and eliminate the need for euthanasia of these otherwise healthy cats.
These cats can live comfortably in barns, stables, agricultural property, wineries, breweries, warehouses, workshops, nurseries or greenhouses, while providing companionship to other animals and expert rodent control.
Cats in this program will be adopted in pairs and will be fully vetted prior to adoption - spayed or neutered; rabies vaccination; distemper vaccination; ear mite treatment; flea & tick treatment; microchip; and ear tip.
If you are interested in considering adoption of a pair of “Working Whiskers”, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-769-4983 and we will send you a link to the program overview.
***PLEASE NOTE: The Shelter DOES NOT need cats for this program, we have plenty! If you have feral or less social cats living around your property, the best thing for them is to stay where they are already comfortable and at home rather than relocating them. If you need assistance spaying or neutering cats so they do not continue to reproduce please contact the Indian Rivers Humane Society who has a feral cat spay/neuter program, 804-885-3109.***
