Green Bean is available as part of our working cat program. He is around 5 years old and has lived as an indoor/outdoor cat in his previous home. Green Bean is shy, but he cautiously accepts pets. He gets along with other cats and we are unsure how he feels about dogs.

Homeward Bound created the Paws on the Job program to address the personalities of cats that come our way who are in need of shelter but don’t fit in a traditional home environment. Perhaps they were strays who have lived independently for too long to re-acclimate to living in a home, or they didn’t receive enough socialization as kittens to feel fully comfortable with people. These could also be cats who get overlooked at the shelter time and time again because they don’t present well to potential adopters- the stress of being caged causes them to have a “short fuse,” or to not want to engage with people as much as other cats, or maybe they don’t want to be picked up.

For more information on working cats, please read about it on our website under Adoption > Adopt a Working Cat.
