Hunter is available to adopt through our working cat program, Paws on the Job. He has a history of being a barn cat and gets along with everything except other cats! Hunter is very affectionate on his own terms and would be great for rodent control indoors or outdoors.

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 questions about Hunter or to schedule an appointment to meet him, please call Homeward Bound, 802-388-1100, ext.230, or email
