About

Cat Partners of Southwestern University (CPSU) manages the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program for cats at Southwestern University. Cat Partners cares for all free-roaming cats on campus—both stray and feral. We feed*, spay/neuter, vaccinate, and provide for veterinary care as needed for the feral cats. Any kittens born on campus are fostered and adopted out. We are an all-volunteer group which includes faculty, staff, students, and neighbors.

The three feeding stations located on campus serve as bases for the colonies and help us to keep track of the cats’ activity. Cats are fed daily year round, with students handling most of the feeding during the school year and faculty, staff, and friends of Cat Partners feeding during summer break and over University holidays.

Cat Partners was started by a student, Alex Brown, in 2010, in an effort to protect and improve the lives of the feral cat population on campus.

Cat Partners relies almost entirely on donations to cover the cost of medical care for the cats, including spay/neutering, shots, testing for disease, dental surgery, emergency surgery, medications.

By making a gift to Cat Partners, you are providing much-needed support to allow the on-campus cat community to continue to flourish and be properly cared for.
