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 Spotlight

Patches      July 2016

Never give up! Almost everyone implementing TNR ends up dealing with that super-smart, elusive female -- one who usually is especially reproductive.

Patches was one of those cats, a cagey, prolific torti who produced three litters a year for virtually all of her five years in a multi-colony Cumberland County neighborhood (taking advantage of the ability to migrate from one colony to another during trapping projects). At last, after years of avoiding capture, Patches was trapped and spayed -- a cause for celebration among the many caretakers and trappers who had hoped so long for that day to come...(read more)

Volunteer Spotlight

Lexis Lambert

While so much attention is paid in the media to troubled youth, our experience with young people demonstrates that compassion, dedication, and commitment to community are alive and well. From Eagle Scouts who have coordinated shelter construction to youngsters organizing supply drives or collecting donations in lieu of birthday gifts, the free roamers we serve have benefited from the efforts of these young men and women.

Twelve-year-old Lexis Lambert began volunteering for the foundation in September 2015, helping virtually every Volunteer Work Day and at various events. An Enola resident who attends 7th grade in East Pennsboro Middle School, Lexis dreams of becoming a famous author/screenwriter. She recently authored an article for our newsletter about her experience observing an eye enucleation in our surgery clinic! Her favorite part of volunteering is seeing the cats, especially Sales Associate Phoebe Weebleman, who obviously loves seeing Lexis too! Lexis loves all kinds of animals and shares her home with one dog, a cat, and four bunnies. We are so grateful that Lexis has dedicated so much of her time and energy to the free roamers.
