Alley Cat Rescue operates a Working Cat Program, which places cats in local businesses, backyards, offices, barns, and warehouses to help combat rodents and pests.
Working cats are would be stressed out if adopted into a home, but they thrive spending time in a warehouse or patrolling around a store.
There are numerous benefits to having cats in the workplace. For warehouses, cats can provide a non-chemical and environmentally friendly rodent control solution. Even just having a cat around a building can scare rats and mice away. In an office environment, not only will cats provide pest control, but they also offer a good dose of office morale and a way to de-stress while at work.
Working Cat programs are growing in popularity across the country. There are currently programs such as ours in most major cities in the US, and ACR has placed thousands of cats in working environments throughout the greater Washington, D.C. and area and Los Angeles County.
If you are a business or barn owner who is interested in adopting a working cat, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All of our working cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
Adopters must provide the cats with food, water, shelter, and long-term vet care. It is also recommended that cats are adopted in pairs. Adopters should also prepare for the necessary transition period; ACR will provide assistance.
Alley Cat Rescue is leading in the way in promoting humane and compassionate care for ALL cats.
