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

Dumpster 2 Crew      January 2015

A feeding station at a mobile home community in northern York County hosts not only the 16 free roamers pictured here. Another eight camera-shy community cats wait for the humans to make themselves scarce before appearing for their daily meal.

When the TNR project for this sprawling community began, more than 300 cats, many starving and sickly, survived on any scraps they could find in the many dumpsters spread throughout the park...(read more)

Nancy Lanzillo      January 2015


A CPA who holds a Master's Degree in Business Administration, Nancy first volunteered for the foundation in late 2012, providing practical advice and guidance about financial processes and procedures. Her role broadened in 2013 when she became a board member and treasurer. By helping create and manage the "nuts and bolts" that underpin our businesses processes, Nancy has contributed to the solid groundwork from which the foundation can thrive in the future. According to Nancy, "volunteering for NCF offers me the opportunity to proudly be part of a winning team that works together to make a difference". (read more)

  • Sponsor a Surgery for World Spay Day!      Posted 1/17/2015


    On Tuesday, February 24, World Spay Day, the foundation will spay or neuter 100 free roamers from all around our eight county south central Pennsylvania region. On the last Tuesday of February every year, World Spay Day shines a spotlight on the lifesaving power of spay/neuter and the need for affordable services, particularly in under-served communities and for under-served animals. Who better qualifies than the free roamers? You can help save lives and prevent suffering in our community by participating in World Spay Day through a surgery sponsorship for our Spay-a-thon!

    You can support our Spay-a-Thon by sponsoring a surgery and related services. Donations in any amount will help us cover the $2,500 cost to our foundation for the life-saving services we'll provide on February 24! Every animal will also receive a rabies vaccine, distemper vaccine, parasite treatment, post-operative antibiotic and ear tip, and will return to a healthier and happier future in his or her outdoor home.

  • First Annual Marley Award Winners!      Posted 11/03/2014

    We realized one of our dreams on October 25 when we announced the first winners of the annual Marley Awards. Three years ago when our founding board began discussing ways to promote and help implement Trap Neuter Return (TNR) in our region, we knew that recognizing the efforts of advocates would raise awareness and pride. Earlier this year, we resolved to formalize that process and created the Marley Awards.

    The award program was named in honor of a free-roaming domestic feline and his long-time caretaker, Nobody’s Cats Foundation founding Board Member Karen Koch, who maintained a lifelong relationship until Marley's death at 17 in early 2014. We invited nominations from our eight-county region for individuals, community cats and non-profit groups, businesses, institutions, and municipalities that have proven to be confirmed supporters of TNR strategy within the region.

    Check out the Winners!

    We'll spay or neuter 100 free roamers from all around our region on World Spay Day -- for free -- to celebrate this international event that raises awareness of the power of spaying and neutering. An annual campaign of the HSUS and Humane Society International, World Spay Day and related events throughout February shine a spotlight on this way to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be killed in shelters or on the street. You can support our Spay-a-Thon by sponsoring a surgery and related services. Donations in any amount will help us cover the $2,500 cost to our foundation for the life-saving services we'll provide on February 24! Every animal will also receive a rabies vaccine, distemper vaccine, parasite treatment, post-operative antibiotic and ear tip, and will return to a healthier and happier future in his or her outdoor home.
