We take responsibility
for all free-roaming cats at Stanford -- unsocialized or tame, sick
or injured, alive or dead. No cats are euthanized, unless medically
warranted by a veterinarian to relieve suffering. None of the animal
shelters can do that, because they are inundated with society's
unwanted, unsterilized pets.
lost Stanford Cats never should be allowed to drop through the cracks,
to either die of starvation or be assimilated into the Campus population
and reproduce. We depend on everyone in the Stanford community to
let us know about them, so that we can intervene and provide care.
We take dead
cats and try to identify them, make a record, and help their Campus
caregiver or the person who lost them to reach closure on their
disappearance and death. Then, we have them respectfully buried
