Barn Cats, Inc. is an all-volunteer group that is devoted to saving the lives of the
"forgotten" cats in our society. We work to locate rural situations there the cats can live out their lives
in as safe an environment as possible. The organization was incorporated in September of 2003 and
received 501C3 classification from the IRS in October of 2003.
To save the lives of urban feral cats
by placing them in safe, barn homes.
All the cats are spay/neutered, have had Rabies and FVRCP vaccinations, tested negative for feline leukemia and have their left ear tipped (notched), the universal sign that a feral cat has been spay/neutered. They come from all over the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex. The organization places an average of seven to ten cats each week primarily on Saturday and Sunday. Only cats old enough to be sterilized are received into the program. All expenses attached to the veterinary care are incurred by the original colony caregiver or group that has trapped the cats.
Barn homes are found all around North Texas. The barn owners agree to continue to care for the
cats (food, water, and medical care) for the remainder of their lives. There is no charge to the barn
owner to receive a cat. Cats have been placed in big barns, small barns, sheds with a cat door,
riding and boarding stables, garages, offices, nurseries, and guest houses.
