Who We Are
Derry Township Community Cats (DTCC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) and vaccination services to humanely control the outdoor cat population in Derry Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.
DTCC celebrated the neuter of its 1,000th cat on
January 23, 2018. To date, we have TNR'ed over 1,200 community cats. By humanely trapping free-roaming cats, neutering and vaccinating them, and returning them to their locations, TNR prevents proliferation of cats and allows colonies to gradually shrink.
DTCC offers a year round low cost spay/neuter services for Derry Township residents with inside, pet cats. A minimal co-pay of $60 per cat (up to and including a limit of three cats in a family), is payable the day of surgery. Call our number below and leave a message for scheduling with a local veterinarian.
The 2021 season will began with a clinic in March.
Our 2021 Clinic schedule adheres to Governor Wolf's Covid-19 pandemic orders and is now open to schedule surgeries.
Our 2021 clinics are scheduled for
the second Tuesday of each month.

National Night Out
Derry Township Community Cats hosted a fun, family oriented information table at the annual National Night Out event hosted by the Derry Township Police Department on August 3. in downtown Hershey. We partnered with Operation Paws for Home and had many visitors.
Children were able to create colorful and ribboned cat masks and adults learned of our mission and shared stories of their pets and experiences with community cats.
Our outreach effort educated the community and helped raise awareness to our efforts to help community cats.
It was an enjoyable evening and look for us next year.
