Rescued Pets Are Wonderful is pleased to announce our Barn Cat Placement Program.

We are looking for cat lovers who have a barn or other secure outdoor structure and are interested in adopting cats that are not suitable for life inside of a house or are unhappy living inside. This program is designed to find homes for cats that have traditionally been deemed un-adoptable through our “normal” adoption procedures. Cat temperaments range from feral to friendly.

If you have a safe, warm barn and would like to adopt barn cats, please email We are developing a waiting list of people to call when we have such cats come into the shelter.

Barn cats benefit their caretakers! Supporting a barn cat is the safest way to control the rodent population in your barn. There are no poisons for children and pets to get into and no need to set nasty traps. They will help keep rodents away from grain and food storage areas, and you’ll enjoy watching the cats as well as have the satisfaction of giving them a much-needed home! Consider adopting a barn cat. We will assist you while the cats settle into their new home.


Due to the nature of the program, we may not have suitable cats available immediately, but will try to fill your request as soon as possible. We will maintain a waiting list, as the number of cats available as candidates for the Barn Cat Program will fluctuate.

Emailing us is a great way to get the ball moving. A RPAW staff member or volunteer will contact you and a visit to the proposed location to ensure it will provide suitable shelter is optional. When we have Barn Cats for you, you will be asked to sign an Adoption Contract.
