adopt a barn cat (ABC) program

Rescue Village's Adopt a Barn Cat Program is about targeting barn homes in our rural community where specific cats, mostly strays, will have a wonderful quality of life. The ABC Program redefines a "good home" and gives a second chance to stray cats.

Adoptable barn cats have been carefully identified and selected by our experienced staff. We exclude declawed cats or those that have come to us from strictly indoor homes. ABC cat owners will be expected to provide food, water, veterinary care, and companionship for their new barn cat.

If you have a barn and are looking for a barn cat, please call us at 440.338.4819 ext. 12 or email
