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.
A colony of 40 cats at an eastern Adams County farm has members who have been around as long as 15 years! With numerous feeding stations, each cat can choose his or her favorite location to enjoy dry and canned food every day, with more of course during the colder months. When the farm owners first moved into their property in 1991, there were no cats, but over the years cats began appearing as individuals migrated from nearby properties along with the occasional drop-off. With imaginative names lovingly applied including Bill Murray, Stripes, Space Ghost, Skitz, and Linus, this colony enjoys the ongoing support and maintenance so critical to their health and well being.
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.
