Houston SPCA Launches Working Cat Program

Mutually Beneficial Initiative Gives Feral Cats a Job and Home

HOUSTON – (April 1, 2021) The Houston SPCA announced today their Working Cat Program, a new initiative that is designed specifically for cats who are best suited in an outdoor environment and will thrive on a property with a structure such as a barn, manufacturing plant or warehouse.

The felines selected for the program will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, and have the most up-to-date vaccinations. Unlike the cats and kittens rescued by the Houston SPCA and placed into their adoption program, cats selected for the Working Cat Program will be independent in nature and very comfortable being away from people most of the time while they patrol a property.

Owners will be required to provide their newly-adopted cat with a safe place to live along with plenty of food, water, and shelter, as well as veterinary care. The Houston SPCA has chosen to waive the adoption fee for all working cats but kindly ask for a donation for the starter kits that include a crate, litter box, and other supplies to help acclimate new working cats and make them feel safe and at home.
