These good folks are responsible for both the cats in my life and I am hugely grateful for what good care they take of their cats. I also love that they promote all sorts of housing for cats and are so mindful of their resources. As Miss Hedy Sugar Smoke can attest, these folks are good people.

Barn Cat Buddies was a life saver for a kitty that had been left behind when her owner died. Older, deaf, and frightened, they agreed to save this girl and now she has the best life ever. Big any group deserves this package, these folks truly do. Dedicated, selfless and loving. They are life lines to the most vulnerable.

If I could give this group 10 stars I would. They helped find a safe place for a senior, deaf kitty who's owner had died. Her house was sold but the kitty was left behind. It was so heart warming to know Missy no longer will have to live under a house, with no prospects of the new owner feeding her. She is in safe hands and I am so grateful you helped her. She had a safe home until she is comfortable in her new environment.

We have 5 cats from barn cat buddies and couldn't be happier. When getting the cats the process was super easy. Working with the coordinators was a breeze and they were always available when we had questions and concerns. The cats are amazing! We have a small farm and they mingle well with the pigs, goats, chickens and even the wild birds that we feed. We are thankful for this organization and the services that they provide!

They helped me with several cat colonies living at dangerously busy Truck Stops! Helped me get them spayed/neutered/rabies. They also subsidized the surgery for 2 different kittens that needed a leg amputated. Not enough words to say about them and their PEOPLE....all the most caring you'll ever meet!

We found our local Barn Cat Buddies by chance and now have two wonderful babies that are members of our family. Spencer and Katie were originally found in a pipe in a dumpster and BCB took great care of them until they found us. The process was easy and we could not be happier with how things went. Highly recommend for anyone looking to adopt. Our motto is always adopt don't shop and BCB helped us!

Barn Cat Buddies has been a wonderful resource for me over the years several times. I have assisted a lady that feeds a colony of feral cats, and I am the one who has trapped and neutered/spayed them, Barn Cat Buddies has helped me with answering questions and assisting where they can. I also helped an elderly lady that had fed and befriended a feral cat that was at her apartment complex, she had worked up to being able to pet and pick the cat up, but she was not able to keep it due to rental agreement, Barn Cat Buddies helped to place this kitty, and this meant the world to this elderly lady and her husband to know that their "special friend" found a home and was being cared for. And seeing this meant the world to me. This organization is Awesome !!!!

I have helped Barn Cat Buddies through the years with feeding. This is such an awesome program. It is very rewarding to be able to help cats who need us humans. They are always happy to see a feeder come and feed. I also adopted a precious kitten who is turning 3 this year...she is a lover.
Thank you BCB for all you do!!

When we purchased a 100 year old farm, mice ran across our path at every turn. Thanks to the 4 adopted cats from Barn Cat Buddies we never see mice around. They brought cages to help get the cats oriented and were very helpful!
