South Lebanon Township discourages residents from feeding outdoor/feral cats in their neighborhood. Nevertheless, we are aware that some of our citizens have been doing this practice for some time.
If you are feeding cats, we would like you to know of South Lebanon Township’s new affiliation with the Nobody’s Cat Foundation. The Foundation promotes the Trap, Spay/Neuter Release method (TNR). This method is the humane and effective strategy for managing and reducing the number of free-roaming domestic cats in our community. When you see a cat with the ear tip clipped that means it was spayed or neutered. There are specific rules to follow for the TNR method for it to be successful, such as not leaving food out overnight.
We are asking that anyone who feeds outdoor/feral cats to take responsibility and access the Nobody’s Cats website at www.nobodyscats.org to review the program guidelines. As you may be aware, not all neighbors appreciate cats roaming about their property and messing in flowerbeds etc. Adherence to this program can minimize the negative impact to the community as well as managing the well-being of the cats.
South Lebanon Township currently has a few volunteers who are running the program and they are looking for additional volunteers. If you would like to be involved, please give us a call at 717-274-0481.
Also, we are accepting donations at the Township building for the following items:
1. pee pads (puppy) any size
2. canned cat food (pate works best)
3. Cat litter (Non-clumping)
4. KMR (kitten milk replacement)
Thank you for your cooperation and please be considerate of your neighbors.
