All over the country, community cats are living outdoors on college campuses, and campuses are embracing Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs as the most humane and effective way to manage their community cat populations. Not only does TNR prevent unwanted pregnancies and help campus cats stay healthy, it also benefits the campus community. A TNR program on campus brings people together who care about cats and reduces the unwanted mating behaviors that cause conflicts between campus cats and people. Alley Cat Allies has all the resources you need to help your campus set up a sustainable, long-term Cats on Campus program.
Here’s how to set up a Cats On Campus Program
Alley Cat Allies’ Cats on Campus Program helps students, staff, faculty, and campus administration work together to create their own effective and sustainable, long-term TNR programs. Learn how other universities have implemented successful TNR programs. Join our Cats on Campus listserve to connect to faculty, students, staff and administration worldwide, who can share advice, offer support, and answer questions. Alley Cat Allies provides guides, strategies, podcasts and links to model programs on campuses across the nation.
