We're Ready to Work!


cir_eartip_cat.jpgWhen Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League receives unsocialized or feral/community cats, sometimes we have to consider non-traditional adoption placement. We believe there is a place for these kitties, even if they can’t be placed into a typical home environment. We recognize that they deserve shelter, access to food and water, and the stimulation of “critter hunting” so much that we waive all adoption fees for our working cats.

Working Cats are healthy, sterilized, vaccinated, microchipped, and in need of a new outdoor home, such as a barn, workshop, warehouse, horse stable, or garage. They are not suited to be indoor pets and, as unsocialized animals, they have no desire to be lap cats. These are working cats, former street cats who are used to outdoor life, prefer minimal to no human contact, and who will happily tend to any pest problems for the small cost of a bowl of cat food and water set out daily, and shelter in a garage or barn.

And because we spay/neuter and vaccinate these cats before they leave Peggy Adams, you never need to worry about endless litters of kittens!


Why Adopt a Working Cat? cir_eartip_cat2.jpg

  •  They serve as excellent critter patrol. Working cats will help keep rodents and other pests away from your property.

  •  They are independent and low-maintenance. All working cats come spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. All they need is food and water daily, a permanent building or shelter to live in, and basic care.

  •  They deserve a chance at life. Since these cats cannot be indoor pets and cannot be returned to their outdoor homes that they are familiar with (which is always preferable), being adopted out as working cats is their best option. By adopting working cats, you are saving their lives.

  • There is no adoption fee. However, donations are accepted and encouraged to ensure the sustainability of the program.
