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).  Its strategies include creating a culture of ownership of free-roaming cat
colonies, encouraging owner caretakers to implement benchmarked TNR standards of care, and providing a high volume of spay/neuter surgeries
through a dedicated surgery clinic for free-roaming cats.

The official registration and financial information of The Nobody's Cats Foundation may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by

Clinic Policy
The Clinic offers spay/neuter surgeries four days a week, Tue. Thur. Fri. & Sat.

Surgeries at our clinic are provided on an appointment-only basis at a cost of $25 per cat.
Cats must be dropped off between 8:30 – 9:00 am and picked up from 3:00 – 5:00 pm the same day.
We do not provide overnight boarding.
All cats receive the same services, including: spay or neuter surgery, ear tip, rabies and distemper
vaccination, parasite treatments, and post-operative antibiotic. When appropriate, cats may receive
subcutaneous fluids and/or pain medication.

We do not provide services for pets or free-roaming cats who will become indoor pets.

Why do we have this requirement?

More than 85 percent of pet cats are already spayed or neutered and responsible rescues and shelters spay or
neuter every animal before placing it in a new home. In addition, many services are available that provide
affordable spay/neuter services for pets and free-roaming cats who will become pets.

Fewer than 3 percent of free-roaming cats are spayed or neutered. Our clinic is dedicated to increasing these
numbers so that fewer kittens are born each year to suffer and die in our communities and so that cats who live
outdoors have safer, healthier lives.

Cats arriving at our clinic in cages, carriers, or other containers will not be processed.

Why do we have this requirement?

Sedating for surgery is quicker and less stressful for cats in humane traps. It also is easier for us to keep them
clean and warm and otherwise monitor their progress during recovery from surgery. In addition, it is safer for
our veterinary staff. Cats are not handled until they are sedated. This prevents escapes and protects our staff
from bites and other incidents.

If you do not have humane traps and would like to borrow traps from the foundation,
click here for more info about our trap loans.
Traps are available for a $40 per trap refundable deposit.
All loans include one trap divider and Trapping Tips document. Drop traps also are available.


Why do we have this requirement?

A tipped ear identifies the cat as a humanely managed free-roaming cat who has been altered and vaccinated
for rabies. This protects the cat from being trapped and anesthetized again, makes trapping projects more
efficient, and maximizes Trap Neuter Return surgery processes. It also protects cats from the pointless and
ineffective practice of rounding up and killing cats in response to “rabies scares” and from being taken to
municipally contracted shelters, where they would most likely be killed, a terrifying process for the cat that
also results in waste of taxpayer dollars.

CLINIC Information Papers & Forms:

  • NCF Coordinators Check List: Information for people coordinating large scale projects,
    managing projects for other organizations or municipalities, or for clients who cannot
    manage their own projects.

  • NCF Admission Form: Admission sheet that can be filled out in advance of appointments,
    one for each cat.

  • Need Help Covering the Cost of Surgeries?
  • Our Surgery Subsidy Program may be able to help.

  • Many municipalities subsidize surgeries through community cats programs, Feral
    Cat Surgery Vouchers from the Humane Society of the Harrisburg Area, or non-
    profit organizations that have received grant funding. We can help you contact
    these programs, most of which will also subsidize surgeries at our clinic with
    advanced approval. The foundation may be able to provide subsidy in some amount
    toward the cost of surgery and related services, depending on the number of
    animals in the colony and the caretaker's financial means. In order to be considered
    for a surgery subsidy in any amount, you must complete a Surgery Subsidy
    Application and The Alley Cats Allies Feral Cat Colony Tracking System, available
    below. Send the completed forms, along with a cover letter outlining why we
    should consider subsidizing surgeries, to Surgery Subsidy Program, The Nobody's
    Cats Foundation, PO Box 725, New Cumberland, PA 17070. Examples of hardships
    that we consider during the application process include: reduced income, income
    dependent on public assistance, loss of job, medical bills, and military duty.
