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 15 south-central Pennsylvania counties (Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Fulton, Huntingdon, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Mifflin, Northumberland, Perry, Schuylkill, Snyder, 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.
Through our various strategies, including our high-quality, professionally staffed dedicated surgery clinic, we hope to help the regional community manage and reduce our region's population of free-roaming cats in a humane and sustainable way.
Whether you love or loath domestic cats, you have a stake in our collective success.
Frozone, now two and a-half years old, appeared at the Marble Colony feeding station when he was just a few months old. Located in a busy Cumberland County borough, this colony is managed by a caretaker who was shocked when she moved into the area by the number of cats traveling through her and her neighbor’s backyards. With the help of a local advocate, she set up a feeding station, provided shelter, and began implementing TNR. A few cats reside in the colony permanently, and any new cats that appear are promptly spayed and neutered. When she began TNR, the majority of cats were very young; today, the majority of new cats are adults. Diligence in monitoring newcomers has successfully decreased new litters in the area!
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.
