‘Barn Cats’ available from La Crescent Animal Rescue

Cats are available to help farm and business owners in our community.

La Crescent Animal Rescue has some feral cats that had called an outdoor area near the shelter home.

The rescue had been spaying or neutering and releasing the cats.

Now, the organization has launched a ‘barn program’ to provide outdoor cats.

Food, a crate and liter will be provided for the first three weeks after the cat is re-homed.

“We will adopt out these cats, who are not suitable for indoor living, to farms or even businesses, warehouses, commercial property, who want a mouser! The benefit to the farmer then is that they don’t have to set out poison,” said Nancy Strelow, La Crescent Animal Rescue vice president Nancy Strelow.

The cats are free of charge, but donations are welcomed.
