We all know that some cats are great for indoor homes and others would prefer the life of freedom in a barn, laying in the sun, and sleeping in the hay. They will hunt rodents, keeping your horse feed free of mice and rats and may be a bit friendly, yet cautious so as not be under your feet all the time. These cats serve a great purpose in your barn and there are many that need these types of homes that are a purr...fect match for them. If you have the time to acclimate a new cat to your barn, please let us know so we can provide you with a list of cats with pictures. All of our cats are FELV-FIV negative, spayed, neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, dewormed and have been given Frontline or Revolution for flea and tick control.
These cats are mostly from Shelby County (years of offspring from females not spayed!!! and males not neutered!!!) Please open your heart and barn to a homeless cat and help reach the goal of "NO MORE HOMELESS PETS IN SHELBY COUNTY".
There is no adoption fee for these cats, but we ask that you make a donation so we can continue to provide veterinary care for cats that need outdoor barn homes.
Your support will help save many more cats lives. Please, they are depending on you.

The foundation's mission is to support a pervasive responsibility toward animal life, particularly compassion for domestic animals. The foundation's purpose includes five components:
1. Reduce animal overpopulation by funding and administering an aggressive neutering & spaying program.
2. Develop a "euthanasia free" rescue and adoption program by arranging a network of foster care homes for owner-abandoned, strayed, and adoptable pets on death row at humane societies.
3. Develop in adults and children, an understanding of the responsibility people hold toward animals and offer training to carry out this responsibility through continued educational programs.
4. Establish a trust fund for the building and management of an animal sanctuary and find a location to set it up.
5. Provide supplies and funds to pre-approved 501(c) 3 animal shelters to assist when cash flow deficiencies arise.
There is a severe shortage of organizations that teach compassion toward and provide help for animals. Animals do not deserve cruel or abusive treatment; it is a travesty that some find great pleasure in an animal's suffering. Further, many need assistance and direction in caring for companion animals because they simply do not know any other way. Companion animals have the closest bond with humans and have enriched people's lives for thousands of years. A child who learns care and respect for an animal's life learns a humane approach toward life in general.
Companion animals are often the animals people think "somebody" should help: the strays, abandoned mothers and pups, tortured kittens, broken-down ponies, and neglected, starving cats and dogs. Enough "somebodies" do not exist to help these creatures. The Foundation presents an opportunity for each individual to take part in solutions and be a "somebody"
I Rescued a Human Today
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.
She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.
A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
