Did you know that you can personally hire CIA agents?! Attention farms, horse barns, and cat lovers in rural areas - our Cats In Action program offers you low-wage assistance in keeping your property rodent free while saving a life at the same time! Two different types of AGENTS available for hire:

AGENTS are cats that would prefer little interaction with their human bosses. They'll provide updates on the rodent population occasionally, but would prefer to do so in passing and not in a personal meeting. They're not the cats you'll find hanging out at the water cooler talking about the latest TV shows or workplace gossip.

DOUBLE AGENTS are purrrfect for those in a rural setting that like to have indoor/outdoor cats. They've got street smarts and are resourceful, but also don't mind being included in group activities or team building meetings. They're just as comfy working in the field or lounging on the couch.

Whichever CIA Agent is the right fit for YOUR place, you'll find them in our adoptable cats list! Take a peek today to find the right feline for the job!

Already know which Agent is your choice? Submit a CIA HIRING REQUEST FORM(also known as an adoption questionnaire).

Looking to adding a working cat to your family? Our CIA Agent cats are less social cats that are perfect for protecting your property or barn from unwanted critters. Because they have different needs than a typical house cat they have their own form with their specific employment requirements.

First Steps

Your new cat should be set up in a confined area when it first arrives at your barn, for approximately a week. If the barn doors close securely the cat can be confined to the barn, but most people prefer confining the cat to a tack room or feed room. While confined your new cat should have access to a clean litter box (even if the cat will not have a litter box once released), food and water. By keeping your cat in the barn for about a week, your cat will associate the barn as “home base” so that once the cat has free reign of the property, it will stick around, and know where to come for food. If there are other animals in the barn area (like other cats or dogs) it is recommended you keep your new cat separate from these animals for at least a week so the cat can adjust to one big change (location!) at a time.
