The Nobody’s Cats Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that promotes the adoption of Trap Neuter Return (TNR) as the preferred strategy for humanely stabilizing and reducing free-roaming domestic feline populations in eight south-central Pennsylvania counties (Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, and York). This approach prevents suffering among the cats, protects public health, reduces stress on wildlife, and enables communities to redirect desperately needed resources elsewhere.

We estimate that approximately 355,000 free-roaming cats exist in our region. Through our various strategies, including providing a low-cost surgery clinic, we hope to help the regional community realize spaying or neutering of 80% of the existing unaltered free-roaming domestic feline population by 2022. Whether you love or loath domestic cats, you have a stake in our collective success.

Nobody's Cats are Everybody's Cats

Free-Roamer of the Month

Sal      August 2015

Sal, his colony fellows, and their caretaker were in dire straits earlier this year when the caretaker was facing eviction. The foundation connected her with one our region's most dedicated and effective mentors for help. Together they TNRd every intact cat remaining in the colony! In addition, Sal received treatment for skin problems and wounds -- and as you can see from this video is "feeling his wild Sals!" His caretaker reports a lessening of personal stress now that she doesn't have to worry about how to alter more cats -- and no more threats of eviction! She's even taken the next step, helping other colonies and caretakers nearby implement the strategy.
