In San Diego, there are cats that are suitable for adoption and then there are near feral cats that are not comfortable being around people. That’s why San Diego county officials have started a Working Cats program to provide vaccinated and neutered/spayed cats for people who want organic pest control.

The working cats are meant to hunt down and kill rodents. In return, the working cats just require shelter, water, and food along with regular medical checkups. By killing rodents, these working cats can kill pests safely.
