Pet Project Rescue’s Barn Cat Placement program was set up to provide rescue for community cats entering our local municipal shelters and being euthanized at a rate of 100%, simply because they were seen as not traditionally adoptable cats. We knew these healthy, under-socialized cats had just as much right to live, and could also serve a great purpose to our community. We negotiated with local shelters to allow PPR to rescue, spay/neuter, vaccinate and place these cats in loving barn homes. This program has prevented hundreds of healthy community cats from being put down, and now our barn partner have great mousers!
We must stress that this program is not a solution to animal overpopulation, and is a program to help until we can TNR every street cat in the Twin Cities. We have limited space, and always ask that people who are considering bringing a community cat into a shelter first contacts us about our TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) program.
How can you help?
1) Donate! Each rescue cat through our Barn Cat Program requires roughly $90 in funding to fully vet and feed, and does not include gas costs for transportation of barn cats to their adoptive homes. We are always in need of sponsors for our wonderful barn cats! Donate today to save a life by using the Barn Cat Program donation button below.
