The ASU Cat Coalition serves to safely and humanely reduce, stabilize and provide ongoing care for the community cats on campus. Founded in 2012, the coalition is run by ASU faculty and staff volunteers and is funded by private donations in order to maintain a healthy cat population.
Our campus cats are protected by animal cruelty laws, and those in managed programs like ASU’s are protected by animal law.
Please note, dumping a cat on campus is illegal. It is a violation of the State Penal code section 42.092 to abandon an animal, punishable of up to a $4,000 fine and two years in prison. Abandoned/dumped cats and kittens can be attacked, injured, not allowed to eat or chased off of campus.
We encourage students and community members to work with a local rescue rather than abandoning a pet cat.
