Pope Memorial Humane Society can help place healthy cats that aren’t suitable as pets in environments where they can flourish, working alongside humans to control rodent populations. These cats can be placed successfully in barns, construction companies, police stations, and other businesses looking for inexpensive and effective rodent control. Our experience has shown that cats are more successful and effective when placed in pairs or groups, so multiple-cat adoptions are encouraged, but not required.

Adopting cats for this purpose offers a safe home and better life to cats that wouldn’t otherwise be candidates for adoption, including:

  • Feral cats whose wild nature and unsociability make them undesirable companion animals.
  • Cats who react negatively to routine handling by people and would not do well as a house cat
  • Cats who are inconsistent with using the litter box and would do well in an indoor/outdoor environment

Cats who fit this description are often most successful when adopted in groups of two or three. Adopters must agree to provide:

  • A warm, safe shelter like a barn or shop to keep the cat protected from the elements
  • Food and clean water every day
  • Future medical care if needed
  • A way to keep the cats contained for 2-3 weeks while they acclimate to new surroundings

If you or somebody you know is interested in this life-saving program, contact Pope Memorial Humane Society at (207) 594-2200 for current availability.
