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.
