These are feral cats, sometimes known as community cats. They have been born and raised in the wild and will not be tamed. They have been spayed or neutered and given rabies vaccinations and other medications if needed. They are healthy and will not breed.
Barn cats can provide a valuable service in keeping away those pesky critters!
We currently have three bonded adult cats needing relocation. They are ready to go to work for you!
Cats need to be introduced to their new home slowly. They will need food, water and shelter. The following link gives details: www.carolsferals.org/free-resources-on-feline-overpopulation/rehoming-barn-cats/
We are available to assist in the relocation process

These are cats born and raised in the wild; very rarely can they be tamed. Often they group together to form "colonies". Many colonies become inter-bred, producing unhealthy kitttens. Other cats, those that have been someone's pet, get lost or abandoned. In some cases, if recovered, they may be adopted.
The Cochise County Humane Society (CCHS) administers a Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) program . Cats are trapped, taken to a veterinarian for a health check, sterilized, given rabies shots and returned to their colony. It is standard practice to clip a tip of an ear to indicate that the cat is a neutered feral.
CCHS does not get government funding, and we are all volunteers. Our only funding comes from donations, bequests and grants.
If you have a cat colony or know someone who does and needs assistance, call our Spay/Neuter line at (520) 955-0668.
If you can volunteer a few hours a month (telephone calls, flyers, transportation, bookkeeping, etc.) please contact us.
We gratefully accept monetary donations! We are a non-profit 501 (c) 3 and your contributions may be tax dedictable.
