Need Our Help?
Simply call (717) 592-8087 and leave a message. One of our volunteers will get back to you about your service needs or to get scheduled for an upcoming spay/neuter surgery date.
While we do not re-home or rescue lost or stray cats, we will post pictures and additional contact information on our Facebook page: 'Derry Township Community Cats'. Send a digital picture and details (location found, area lost in, date of disappearance, etc.) to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post for you.
If you are on Facebook, send the same information to The Hummelstown Sun (message their Facebook page or call them at (717) 566-3251) and they will post a Bow-Wow Bolo for lost or found pets. The FB page 'Find Toby in PA' and Hershey Area Cat lovers are also FB resources. You can 'IM' each site for help in posting.
If the cat you're concerned about is friendly and you can handle it, consider taking it in a carry case to a local veterinarian, the Derry Township Police, or The Hummelstown Sun to scan for a possible microchip, which could help find the cat's owner.

Derry Township residents can use the following services at no charge, and help reduce the outdoor cat population:
Training and assistance with trapping cats
Full spay and neuter services
Vaccinations (rabies and distemper) and any medical treatment needed for cats who have been trapped
Post-surgical care for cats
Return of outdoor cats to their colony
Owned, indoor cats (must be at least six months old at time of sugery) are also serviced under the program with a minimal co-pay of $60 per cat. Please call when your pet is 4 or 5 months old to schedule. Appointments are usually made one or more months out. There is a 3 cat per household limit. This is a year round service. Call to schedule a surgery date with a local veterinarian.
If you do see community cats in your neighborhood and would like to have them TNR'ed, you can begin a regular once a day feeding schedule, prepare an outdoor shelter, if you like, (see resources page) and call us now to be put on the clinic schedule. Our trappers will teach you how to acclimate the cats to the traps and set them at the appropriate time. We will collect the cats, handle the surgery and recovery and return when ready for release.
