Working Cats Program

We also wanted to make you aware of a very cool program at Jackson County Animal Services. The Working Cats Program seeks to find adoption placement for healthy adult cats that are not suitable for a traditional adoption due to social or behavioral reasons. Working cats provide a service to the community as pest and rodent control. Previously deemed ‘unadoptable,’ these cats now have an option of a positive live release outcome. Plus, adopting working cats saves lives! The shelter has successfully placed working cats in places like barns, farms, wineries, and so much more! Cats are usually adopted in groups of two or more, with a few exceptions. Keep in mind – these are unsocial cats who, mostly, cannot be handled by humans and may not benefit from attempts at socialization. However, they do benefit from the support and companionship of other cats in a ‘work environment’. To learn more about the Working Cats Program, click here or email workingcats@fotas.org.
