DLSU-PUSA operates independently and does not receive funding from the university.
Pusapporters, as the members are called, breathe life into these cats with their donations and contributions. Anyone can become a Pusapporter; one can become a volunteer feeder or a foster parent. Others may help in finding adopters, manning the booth during fund-raising events, doing artworks for DLSU-PUSA, or giving feedback and helpful information in monitoring the cats.
“I can see more students wanting to volunteer and get involved. There were non-cat lovers who learned to fall in love with the cats. I think the trend will continue. While there are cat haters, too, the presence of the cats can soften up several people's attitudes one way or the other. Baby steps, but good enough for us“, says Laureen. Not everyone will instantly fall in love with the cats. However, For DLSU-PUSA, respect -- if not mere tolerance -- is already a blessing in itself.
