Desperately Needed: Homes for our TNR & Barn Cats

We are in desperate need of homes for our Barn Cats.  For a complete listing of our cats – please check our website at TNR/Barn Cats.  Interested? Call WCHS at 262-677-4388 and ask for Jessie for more details!



Do you have a barn or out building where you need a little rodent control? Or perhaps you’d just like to have some feline friends on your property? Look no further, WCHS is looking for OUTDOOR cat homes for our feral (unfriendly) cats that others unfortunately can’t put back on their property.

The qualifications to “adopt” are:

    • Barn/Out building where the cats can be safe from harsh weathers/seek shelter from predators

    • Ability to do a 2-3 week quarantine for each new cat in a room/crate they cat cannot get out of

    • Provide food and water

    • The new caretaker should want to make verbal attempts to bond with them. Even though these cats are not friendly in shelter environments, they may become friendly to the caretakers.

All cats put through our TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program get spayed/neutered, a left ear tip, which signifies they are part of an outdoor community that is cared for and have been fixed, and a rabies shot (depended on age/weight).  All of this comes at no cost to you if you are in Washington County!
