BARN CATS FOR RODENT CONTROL
The horses are beautiful and the barn is pristine, but where there are animals, hay and food there are also rodents. Barn cats can help. Rodents destroy insulation, electrical wiring, bedding and leather, contaminate feed supplies and spread disease. Having a resident stable or barn cat can provide a safe, nontoxic solution to this issue.
The mission of the Volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter is to find homes for all animals who find themselves temporarily homeless. Some cats arrive at the shelter who are unsocialized, feral or have other behaviors that mean they can never be successfully adopted as a family pet. Their options are limited, their future uncertain. However they are healthy, have had their shots and in return for a safe, comfortable environment, regular food and water can easily become a working cat and a valuable asset to the equestrian community.
Our volunteer team will visit the property, discuss the potential, then deliver the cat(s) and help in setting up the safe environment and establishing routines. The nominal fee of $35 per cat covers spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, disease testing and parasite prevention.
The VBAS Barn Cat Program has been saving lives for the past nine years. Cats have gone to a ranch in Ojai, a school in Silverlake and many individual barns and businesses throughout Southern California. In the last two years alone, more than 50 cats have found a live-work environment through the diligent efforts of our team.
If you are interested in a Barn Cat, please contact Bonnie at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 818 515 0002.
The benefits of having a barn kitty are many. The benefit of being that barn kitty is monumental…it's literally lifesaving.
