It’s National Feral Cat Day! Learn About the ARLGP Country Kitties Program.

cat_grass2At the ARLGP, we receive surrendered and stray felines that are not suitable for an indoor lifestyle. Our Country Kitties Program places these cats in homes that can provide them with the outdoor lifestyle that they need. Country Kitties are unlike the majority of the cats we place into homes at the ARLGP. These cats are not suitable for indoor life, due to having lived outdoors long-term and they cannot acclimate to living indoors, or they may have litter box habits that are unsuitable for indoor living, or they may be feral. Country Kitties are generally independent cats, in need of little interaction from their human landlords.

What is the criteria for adopting a Country Kitty?

  • An outdoor housing area, such as a barn or stable.
  • The ability to provide long-term veterinary care, when needed.
  • The ability to provide food and water in your outdoor housing area.

It is important to note that adopting a Country Kitty is still a responsibility, and the adopter will be providing necessary care to their feline throughout their entire life. In return, you are providing a home to an animal in need.

Country Kitties are always spayed or neutered, and up to date on their vaccinations. They are patiently waiting for a new outdoor home. If you are interested in learning more about adopting a Country Kitty, contact the ARLGP at (207) 854-9771 or email feline staff member, Jen Brown, at jbrown@arlgp.org. You can also download a Country Kitty adoption application to get the process started.
