SBU Cat Network
Who We Are
The SBU Cat Network is an organization of student, staff, and faculty volunteers at Stony Brook University, formed two years ago to help hundreds of homeless cats on the SBU campus.
***BECAUSE WE ARE A SMALL, GRASSROOTS NETWORK OF INDIVIDUALS, WE REGRET THAT WE CANNOT SHELTER OR PLACE CATS FROM THE LARGER COMMUNITY. You might try other no-kill shelters in the area: League for Animal Protection of Huntington, 104 Deposit Rd., East Northport; 631-757-4517.

Save-A-Pet, Rte 112, ¼ mile north of Rte 347, Port Jefferson, NY 631-473-6333***
As is true for many universities around the country, the campus is home to generations of descendants of cats that were dumped by their owners and that are now feral. For kittens young enough to be socialized, we foster them and find homes. For older cats that seem to be irrevocably feral, we follow the standard practice of humanely trapping, neutering, and vaccinating them, and then re-releasing them back into their colonies. Colonies are given fresh food and water every day by our volunteers; small wooden shelters located at several points around campus house some of the cats. In addition to the wonderful people who decide to adopt a cat, The Cat Network desperately needs cat food, wooden shelters, temporary foster homes, financial donations, and volunteers. Please let us know if you can help, and thanks for your interest!
Adopting a friend
Just contact the The Cat Network using the information below to get more details on adoption. A donation is requested but not required to cover our costs for spay/neuter,
vaccinations, and tests. Each adopter must fill out an adoption agreement.
Cats that are posted on Petfinder stay with foster families until permanent homes are found for them, so when you contact us arrangements will be made with you as to how and where to meet the cats.

We regret that we can't respond to requests to take in outside cats, as we are not a shelter and do not have such facilities.
