Wayside Waifs

Our Barn Cat Program

Some cats prefer the call of the wild and don't envision their life on a warm lap, being pampered to 24 hours a day.  For this reason, Wayside Waifs has a Barn Cat Program. This program is for cats that are not deemed adoptable but are healthy.  This would include cats that are: feral (fearful and unsocial) or who are housesoilers/sprayers and/or need outdoor enrichment (high energy).  All cats will have bloodwork done and must be negative for Felv and FIV. 

All cats will be altered and vaccinated before they leave as to help control the pet population. They will also receive flea/tick control. Adoption fees are waived for these cats.  

Adopters must provide:

If you are interested in adopting a cat from our Barn Cat program, just inquire with our Adoptions Team when you arrive at Wayside Waifs. Wayside Waifs does not take in cats for the purpose of the program. Only cats already in our shelter that are not suited to a traditional home setting are deemed barn cats and placed in this program.
