The Campus Cat Coalition is all-volunteer non-profit TNR cat rescue organisation dedicated to caring, rescue and humane management of homeless cats living on the UNSW Sydney campus.
The Campus Cat Coalition comprises UNSW Australia staff, students, residents and community volunteers. Our mission is to carry out a maintenance program to manage and reduce the stray cat population on campus in the most humane way. The Campus Cat Coalition provides a viable alternative to euthanasia through spay/neuter, vaccination, release, feeding, and adoption of socialised cats and kittens.
Cats and kittens are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and either rehomed wherever possible or released back into their campus territory where they are fed and monitored by our volunteers.
Unclaimed tame strays and any kittens are boarded or fostered until homes are found. No cats are euthanased, except as warranted by a veterinarian to relieve suffering.
Studies have proven that this method of control involving trap/spay-neuter/vaccinate/release is the single most effective and successful method of stabilising, maintaining and eventually reducing the healthy stray cat population that lives on campus.
The UNSW TNR paper co-authored by Helen Swarbrick has been published in Animals - Journal of Animal Science and Animal Welfare:
“Application of a Protocol Based on Trap-Neuter- Return (TNR) to Manage Unowned Urban Cats on an Australian University Campus”, Animals (ISSN 2076-2615)
This publication is an outstanding achievement and a testimony to the importance of what we have been doing and what has been achieved by our TNR Program on the UNSW campus in the last 10 years. We also hope that it will lead to Australia-wide recognition, acceptance and legalisation of TNR programs.
