SPCA introduces Working Cat Project

22 May 2020 Winchester Frederick County Clarke County News

The SPCA of Winchester, Frederick and Clarke counties announced the launch of its Working Cat Project, a pilot program designed to find non-traditional homes for non-traditional cats.

According to the SPCA, there are a significant number of cats in the community that do not have conventional homes. Many of these cats have been abandoned or, more often than not, are the offspring of non-neutered and non-spayed cats that have been abandoned or born in the wild. These cats may fend for themselves, with some degree of success. However, because they are not spayed or neutered they contribute to the growth of the cat population.

SPCA’s Working Cats Project provides “working cats” to businesses or individuals as an effective and efficient means of rodent and pest control. At the same time, it provides homes for cats that may otherwise not be adopted. The program is designed to benefit both the cats, their adopters and the community at large.

All working cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and offered to local farms, barns and businesses for no adoption fee. To learn more about the Working Cat Project, visit this page.
