Frequently Asked Questions
What is For Paws?
For Paws is an official organization of the university, made up of concerned staff, faculty, and students who support the need for a program (TNR) for the control of feral/abandoned cats living on campus.
What is the Trap-Neuter-Return program?
The TNR program is a non-lethal means of controlling feral and stray cat colonies in populated areas. The program traps, vaccinates, spays/neuters, and returns cats to their colonies. Trained volunteers then maintain and monitor the cats to ensure a healthy population.
