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

The Lucky Ones      April 2015

One of the saddest realities we must face every day is the fact of pets and free roamers discarded on rural properties, including farms and stables. Most already have an abundance of cats -- keeping up with spaying/neutering and other care becomes an ongoing, expensive and overwhelming challenge. Only one cat in a million discarded in such a way is lucky enough to find him or herself at this and similar sanctuaries!

This refuge includes a barn dedicated to the needs of all cat residents...(read more)

    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!
