About This Project

Millions of cats that enter US animal shelters every year are euthanized. Currently, there is little scientific information about how to best match up individual cats with prospective adopters, meaning that adoptions either never occur or they fail (the cat is returned to the shelter). Combining research on human and feline personality, we aim to create a compatibility assessment tool that will allow cats to be placed in homes where they have the best chance for long term success.
