The Farm Home Project
GNHCP has healthy, sterilized cats in desperate need of new outdoor homes! Under ordinary circumstances, we return sterilized feral cats to their colonies. We have, however, encountered situations where it is not safe to return the cat(s) or where there is an irregular feeding schedule or no feeder at all. Some of the situations we’ve encountered are:
- A feral mom cat gives birth in someone’s basement. The kittens are socialized and placed in permanent homes. What about the mom?
- A feral cat shows up at an apartment complex. The superintendent wants the cat removed. Where should the cat be taken?
- A neighborhood is being demolished for development. The buildings where the feral cats lived will soon be demolished and they will perish in the construction. Where should they go?
Neighborhood kids are trapping cats as bait for dog fights. No one reports the incidents as animal cruelty because “it’s just a cat.” Should living creatures be treated in this manner? GNHCP is looking for barns to relocate feral cats who cannot be returned to the area from which they were rescued. Each cat has been tested for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline AIDS (FIV), has received Distemper and Rabies vaccines, is checked for ear mites, and has been spayed or neutered. We loan cages for a short period of confinement, in order for the cat to adjust to his/her new home. We also provide a litter box, bowls and startup food to assist in the relocation process. We ask you to provide daily food and water, protection from the elements, and long-term veterinary care.
The cat(s) will help with rodent control in grain and storage areas, and also make good companions for horses or other livestock. If you own property or have permission for long-term placement and would like to learn more about this project, please Contact Us via phone or email. Please help us provide safe and much-needed homes for these special cats so they can continue to live out their lives!
