 Our Barn Cats Program offers an environmentally-safe alternative to poisonous pest controls. Our working cats, who aren’t suited for indoor living, would love to spend their lives helping to control your warehouse, ranch, mill or barn’s rodent and pest population. All they ask for in return is shelter, food, water and care.  There is no adoption fee for barn cats, who are spayed/neutered and vaccinated. We can provide you information on how to properly care for these working cats.

How to Adopt a Dog or Cat

The Española Valley Humane Society is a nonprofit organization that relies on private donations and its own fundraising abilities to operate. The adoption fees help to offset some of the costs of providing care for the animals and preparing them for placement into new homes.  Adoption fees are on a sliding scale from free to $200, depending on how long an animal has been in the shelter’s care. Average adoption fees for an adult cat or dog are free to $150, and for a small breed dog, puppy or kitten, $25 to $200.  All adoption fees include the spay or neuter surgery, a microchip with lifetime registration in a national database, initial vaccinations, and 30 days of pet health insurance.
