What is CATsNAP?

Champaign Area Trap, Spay, Neuter & Adoption Program

Established in 2005, CATsNAP is a non-profit that seeks to reduce pet overpopulation and to improve the welfare of animals in the greater Champaign County Illinois area. 

Specifically, we strongly advocate that all animals are spayed and neutered, regardless of breed, sex, or age.  By spaying/neutering, we are reducing the number of cats and dogs born into situations of inadequate care and abuse.  We are also limiting the numbers of unwanted animals relinquished to shelters, where they are often euthanized for lack of space. 

CATsNAP does not endorse the buying of domestic animals from large-scale commercial breeders or from any of the outlets they supply.
