The Sarnia & District Humane Society recognizes that not all cats are suitable for a home environment and will, under special circumstances, adopt cats to individuals wishing to provide these special cats with an opportunity to live in a rural, farm or shop type setting.
Cats adopted must live in a rural, barn or shop type setting must have access to food, shelter, water, regular vet care, love, and attention. Feral cat colonies will not be considered for this program.
Barns or warehouses must be heated or well insulated and these cats must not be expected to fend for themselves. We recommend that 2 cats are adopted together so they have a companion in the outdoor environment. If the adopter leaves the place where the cat(s) is living, he/she must make arrangements for the cat(s). Suitable arrangements include taking the cat with him/her or finding another caregiver to accept responsibility for the ongoing care and welfare of the cat(s) and transfer ownership.
