Cat Programs 

Jackson Galaxy Project and Cat Pawsitive Program

Developed by Jackson Galaxy and a team of animal behavior experts, The Jackson Galaxy Project’s Cat Pawsitive is Woman giving cat a treat while cat stands up on hind legsa mojo-enhancing, positive-reinforcement clicker training initiative that enriches day-to-day life for cats in shelters, builds new skills for cats as well as shelter staff and volunteers, promotes the human-cat bond, and helps improve adoptability. By utilizing positive, reward-based Cat Pawsitive training, a shelter volunteer or staff member can reduce the stresses that might keep a cat from connecting with an adopter. LCAS was accepted into the program Winter of 2019. To join our Cat Pawsitive Team, apply to become a Feline Friend volunteer by filling out the Volunteer Application.

Barn Cat Program

Our goal is to find a home for every animal that comes our way. The Barn Cat Program pairs feral cats with cat lovers who have an interest in adopting a cat that is not suitable to be an indoor house cat. Their new home allows them to "work" by controlling the rodent population on their property.

We use the term ‘Barn Cat’ largely symbolically. While we do place the greatest percentage of our cats on rural farm properties, there are an infinite number of other locations that are suitable and interested in adopting barn cats:

  • Warehouses
  • Junkyards
  • Auto Repair shops
  • Woodworking shops
  • Wineries
  • Stables
  • Grain handling facilities
  • Greenhouses/Nurseries/Garden Centers
  • Churches
  • Storage facilities

The cats in this program are feral cats that are healthy, sterilized, vaccinated, and have been microchipped. If you do not have another barn cat, we encourage you to consider adopting a pair. People who adopt through the Barn Cat Program are providing these animals shelter, food, water, and a chance to use their natural instincts to hunt.
