Beginning with its Saturday, August 16 seminar, The Nobody's Cats Foundation will provide a 20% discount on the $25-per cat spay/neuter surgery fee, for up to five cats, to caretakers who attend any of its TNR Basics Seminars throughout the region.
Seminars are held the third Saturday of every month from 1-3 pm at the foundation's facility at 3909 Hartzdale Dr, Suite 905, Camp Hill, PA. Seminars also are held on weekday evenings from 7-9 pm in other locations.

The two-hour seminars, tailored to beginners and led by experienced volunteers with decades of experience in the field, include an overview of the realities of domestic feline overpopulation, step-by-step instructions for implementing projects, a question and answer session, and hands-on operation of various humane traps and tools. Each attendee also receives a booklet of comprehensive resources and information.

WGAL - Over 30 cats found at condemned home in Cumberland County
What isn't included in the report -- and equally amazing -- was the willingness of many local rescues to step up to help the adoptable animals: HOKFAI, Castaway Critters, and PAWS at a time when they are all overwhelmed by pleas for help elsewhere. And further, thanks to SNAP, which covered the cost of 16 cats spayed and neutered last week at our clinic. SNAP continues to work with us as we implement a formal TNR program at the park that will stop the cycle of suffering! THANKS to Karen, Barb and all our wonderful local organizations for everything they did with this project -- and all year long!
If you or someone you know would like to adopt one of the many cats available through the rescues, contact them directly:
Lower Allen Township commissioners have updated the ordinance with a goal in mind to help reduce stray,
Lower Allen Township commissioners Monday night adopted an updated animal ordinance they hope will reduce the feral cat population in township communities.
The updated ordinance makes several language changes and authorizes a trap-neuter-return program to reduce the number of feral cats humanely.
The revised ordinance includes the possibility of fines for those who continue feeding stray or feral cats which have not been neutered.
But township officials would prefer to work with so-called caretakers of feral cats to have them neutered instead of issuing fines.
