Cal Poly Cat Program

The Cal Poly Cat Program (CPCP) is a non-profit organization of students, faculty, staff and community members who care about the health and happiness of both feral and domesticated cats.

The program was started in 1992 as a senior project by Garret Quindimil to solve the problem of a rising cat population at Cal Poly. Over the years, other senior projects, campus volunteer staff, and community members have all helped upgrade the campus cat shelter and this web page.

Today we have a no-kill shelter located on the Cal Poly campus. We estimate the feral cat population on campus to be at 15 cats, with volunteers maintaining feeding stations. Most of these cats have gone through our program, so they are sterile and healthy.

Our adoption program has placed more than 3,000 cats and kittens into caring homes. We continue to work with other agencies to reach a time when there are no more homeless cats. Gifts to this campaign will allow us to achieve this goal while assisting us in our efforts in feeding, spay/neuter, vaccinating, and treating for emergencies and future chronic illnesses.
