Adopt a free barn cat from Mesquite Animal Services

Mesquite, Texas – April 5, 2019 – If you’re looking for a natural approach to pest control, consider adopting a free “barn cat” from Mesquite Animal Services (MAS). These working cats are less socialized than domestic cats, which means they prefer an unconfined environment with limited human interaction. While barn cats are not suitable as indoor family pets, their natural instincts make them perfect for controlling mice and other nuisance rodents. 

Barn cat adoptions are part of MAS’s Trap-Neuter-Return program. To help control Mesquite’s feral cat population, MAS traps large colonies of cats, and then sterilizes and vaccinates the cats before returning them to their habitat. Because many of these colonies densely populate Mesquite neighborhoods, MAS seeks more places to relocate the cats once they are neutered and vaccinated.

MAS offers these cats to anyone willing to provide a suitable sheltered environment, fresh food and water daily, and any necessary medical care. All barn cat adoptions are free. If needed, MAS can deliver cats to residences within Mesquite. For more information on adopting a barn cat from MAS: call Jeanne Saadi, manager of Animal Services, at 972-216-6910; email rescues@cityofmesquite.com; or visit MAS at 1650 Gross Road.
