About the NFRC

The mission of the National Feline Research Council (NFRC) is to compile, analyze, and disseminate rigorous scientific research relevant to the efficient management of free-roaming cats.
Like all public policy, guidelines for the effective management of free-roaming cats (aka unowned, stray, or feral cats) must be based on sound science.


To this end, the NFRC supports evidence-based community cat policies that take into consideration a broad range of factors important to various stakeholders (e.g., effectiveness, public health, economic impact, public opinion, etc.).
