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

Minnie      January 2017

Minnie appeared very emaciated at an established colony located at a business in Cumberland County, unsure about how to access the feeding station a few yards away and not accepted by the existing colony cats. The colony caretakers began to feed her separately and Minnie began to appear daily. She avoided the humane trap so the caretakers used the pre-baiting approach and after a week she was caught!

On surgery day she weighed a mere 5.71 lbs, severely underweight for her frame, and was pregnant with six kittens! Since returning to the colony, she has assumed ownership of an all-weather shelter and has more than doubled her weight! In this trail-camera photo, Minnie looks quite healthy with a thick winter coat. She has since invited two more felines to her colony, including one who was already ear tipped! These trail cameras are great tools for monitoring colonies and identifying newcomers.

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.
