Special Programs

You are here

Adoption fees are waived for each of these alternative adoption programs. All cats receive a health check, vaccinations, a microchip, and spay or neuter surgery. Special programs cats are listed in at the bottom of our cat adoption page. They are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Senior for a Senior

Senior cats in this program (seven years and older) are paired with elderly citizens looking to complete their homes. This program is currently only available in shelter and not any offsite locations. 

PROSPECTIVE ADOPTERS MUST MEET THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:

  • Must be 60 years or older

Cattitude Cats

These cats have been placed in this program due to behaviors we have seen in the shelter such as cat-aggressive behaviour, shy or scared behaviour, or too much aggression when playing (biting, scratching). Due to some or all of these behaviors we recommend them going to a single cat household.

PROSPECTIVE ADOPTERS MUST MEET THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:

  • If the cat is going to live outside, it must have a protective enclosure for the cat to easily enter
  • Be willing to continue veterinary care as required; including vaccines

Barn Buddies

House soiling cats get a second chance in our Barn Buddies alternative adoption program. Semi-feral cats and kittens that have not tamed down enough to be house cats may also be available through this program. The cats in this program are generally looking for a barn or shop placement.

PROSPECTIVE ADOPTERS MUST MEET THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:

  • Have a protective enclosure for the cat to easily enter
  • Be willing to feed the cat each day; these animals cannot be expected to live on what they may or may not catch.
  • Be willing to continue veterinary care as required; including vaccines
