Study Alumni

 

The cats below contributed to "cat-kind" through participation in a study of a contraceptive vaccine with potential for use in free-roaming and feral cats. We're thrilled to announce that every one has been adopted to a loving forever home! All of our participant cats came from very high-risk situations and entered a kitty paradise when they joined the study. They enjoyed a large indoor-outdoor living space; abundant enrichment; lots of attention from study staff, interns, and volunteers; training using exclusively positive reinforcement; and outstanding veterinary care (you can view some of our favorite photos of daily life here). Every cat was spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before adoption. 

Funders

Thank you to the Morris Animal Foundation and John T. and Jane A. Wiederhold Foundation for generously funding this study and supporting new ways to humanely manage cat populations.
