Barn Buddy Program

Our Barn Buddy Program is designed to match cat lovers who own heated structures, such as a barn or workshop, with a cat that prefers to live in an indoor/outdoor setting.

Willing to share your heated barn or workshop with a feline friend?

The Humane Society of Kitchener Waterloo and Stratford Perth’s Barn Buddy Program helps those feline friends that prefer an indoor/outdoor living environment. Adopters are still deemed to be their owner and are responsible for food, water, shelter and ensuring they have access to regular medical care.

Barn Buddies range in temperament from semi-social to very friendly. They may prefer to share your living arrangements from a distance, need a little time to warm up to you (treats work well) or harass you for love every day!

A Barn Buddy has an adoption fee of $25 which includes their spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip, tattoo and ear tip.

Ready to Adopt a Barn Buddy?

Please fill out our Barn Buddy Application.

If we don’t have a Barn Buddy available when you inquire, we do hold a waiting list. As soon as we have a suitable candidate, we will notify those waiting for their very own mouser!*

*The term ”mouser” is used loosely. The Humane Society of Kitchener Waterloo and Stratford Perth will not be held liable should your mouser be ineffective at his or her job.
