Novel Approaches to Community Cat Management-Mon. Sept 23

August 10, 2013



Novel Approaches to Community Cat Management

Dr. Kate Hurley, DVM, MPVM

Director of the Koret Shelter Medicine Program,

UC Davis Center for Companion Animal Health


10:30 a.m.—4:00 p.m.

ST. HUBERT’S COMMUNITY ROOM         575 Woodland Avenue, Madison, NJ


For over a century, sheltering programs have been a centerpiece of our response to abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats. In recent years, we’ve seen a dramatic divergence between the fates of these two species: while shelter intake and euthanasia have commonly declined on a per capita basis for dogs, for cats the rates have remained stubbornly high in many communities. The presence of a large population of un-owned “community cats” in most areas has a profound impact on the potential success of sheltering strategies. Evidence is building that novel approaches, which would not work well for dogs, can provide humane and cost-effective alternatives for cats within the shelter as well as outside the shelter walls.

This workshop will present data comparing the success of current practices in accomplishing some of the main goals of shelters for dogs versus cats. Alternative responses to community cats will be described that maintain the success of “traditional” shelter programs in accomplishing these goals, while dramatically improving the success in areas where many shelters continue to struggle. Practical examples will be provided, detailing challenges and success in a variety of communities.
