The Campus Cat Network at UCLA is composed of UCLA staff volunteers and has been maintaining the feral cat population on campus since 1989 when Law Professor Taimie Bryant established the program. In addition to replenishing food and water on campus, the group is involved in all phases of trap-neuter-return work, including capturing for spay or neuter, return of unadoptable cats to the campus, and fostering of adoptable kitties until permanent homes are found.
The trapping process uses “Havahart” traps that are quite humane, and we will provide training in the very easy set-up procedure. The Cat Network is responsible for all veterinary costs, transport, etc.
Fostering for adoption will normally involve young kittens, although we occasionally trap a socialized adult kitty who has been abandoned on campus. We have printed information from Kitten Rescue that provides guidance on best practices in foster care.
Please contact Dennis Lyday at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in either activity or if you would like more information.
