Our second activity, rescuing abandoned domesticated cats, involves rescuing abandoned & stray cats.

Our mission is to trap, neuter, vaccinate, & return the many stray, discarded, lost, community cats that call Temple campus, and its environs, home. We do not focus on adoption, primarily because of our belief in the efficacy of TNR. We find and advance humane solutions by providing shelters, behavioral and feeding consultations, flea prevention, & sometimes even nail trimming (!) for community cats. In that way, we hope to benefit both the animals & the people with whom they live.
