Oh I take care of an outdoor cat I might have to take a look at this

🌾🐾 Did You Know? We Have a Barn Cat Program! 🐱🏠

At Haywood County Animal Services, were excited to let you know about our Barn Cat Program – a unique initiative to give feral or semi-feral cats a purposeful and fulfilling life! 🌟 These working cats thrive in environments with minimal human interaction and, in return, offer valuable rodent and pest control services. 🐭🚫

πŸ”§ How it Works:
These cats are expert mousers and are more suited to as little interaction with people as possible. In exchange for shelter, safety, and regular food/water, they become your silent partners in keeping your space pest-free! 🏑🐱

🌳 Benefits of Adopting a Barn Cat:
β–ͺ️ Efficient Rodent Control
β–ͺ️ Low Maintenance Companions
β–ͺ️ Eco-Friendly Pest Management

🏑 How to Get Involved:
If you have a barn, stable, warehouse, or any outdoor space in need of natural pest control, consider welcoming one of our Barn Cats into your environment. Visit us at Haywood County Animal Services to learn more about our Barn Cat Program and find the purrfect match for your space. πŸΎπŸ’•

Lets create a win-win situation for both these independent feline friends and your property. Share this post to spread the word about our Barn Cat Program! πŸ”„πŸŒˆ
