Thousands of cats are admitted to the SPA de l’Estrie each year, but unfortunately, many cannot be placed for adoption in families. We are referring to feral and fearful cats that will never be able to adapt to life in a home or be cuddled by humans.
In order to save these animals and provide them with an adequate environment, the SPA de l’Estrie is proud to implement a new Barn Cat Program. This program consists of collaborating with farms, warehouses, greenhouses or any other establishment that could welcome these felines in excellent health, but with a feral behavior. They will be sterilized, vaccinated, treated for worms and microchipped at the expense of the SPA de l’Estrie.
In return, the establishments commit to offering them warmth, comfort, security and food. Working cats can also be very useful in keeping rodents away, for example.
Thanks to this new program, we will be able to save the lives of many cats who simply need freedom and independence, while ensuring their well-being.
