The Anaheim Campus Feral Cat Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing care to feral cats at the Anaheim Campus of the North Orange County Community College District (NOCCCD). When NOCCCD purchased the property for the Anaheim Campus, it not only included acreage and buildings, but it also included a colony of feral cats. These cats live throughout the campus, and if left unchecked, will reproduce many more.
The Anaheim Campus Feral Cat Project was founded to control and maintain this feral cat colony. Studies have proven that a trap-neuter-return program is the single most successful method of stabilizing and maintaining healthy feral cat colonies. A managed colony will keep other stray cats from coming onto the property and reproducing. Also, the cost of maintaining a feral cat colony is much cheaper, in addition to being more humane, than extermination of the colony. Exterminating a feral cat colony allows other stray cats that are unaltered to move onto the property and start the vicious cycle all over again.
Since inception of the project on December 20, 2002:
All remaining cats in the project have been fed on a daily basis. This has been made possible through the generous donations of caring District employees. No public funds are used for this project.
