Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) is a humane method of reducing the population of feral and stray cats over time. Cats already living outdoors are humanely trapped, evaluated, spayed or neutered, and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their familiar habitat and cared for by the property owner or volunteers. Cat populations are gradually reduced. Since 2005, we have helped over 9,500 cats be spayed or neutered.
How can I get help with TNR? Do you know of a colony of feral cats that needs help? The Hundred Cat Foundation will guide you through the TNR process and when possible work side by side with you not only on the original TNR phase but continue to offer support and networking for feral colony management after the colony is stable. We also offer guidance and assistance with do-it-yourself TNR projects. Clickhere to learn how to start your own TNR program.

Feed the Ferals
Through our Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) work, we have seen first hand how difficult it is for many caretakers to feed the cats in their colony a healthy diet. Often, difficult choices must be made by people on fixed incomes caring for a large number of cats. We have met families who could only feed table scraps or perhaps use some of their food stamps to purchase tuna to feed the cats. Through the Feed the Ferals program, HCF is helping by providing donated food to these colonies. Currently we are providing over 900 pounds of food each month. Donations to this program allow us to provide this much-needed service while reserving our cash donations for our spay/neuter program.
We have 2 wish lists that you can use to donate food to this program:
We also gladly except donations of gift cards to local stores that sell cat food such as Wal-Mart, PetCo, Weis Markets, Target, or Wiscoy or cash donations earmarked for this program.
Shelter Distribution Program HCF has a limited number of FREE shelters for feral cats available in the early fall of each year. In Central PA’s cold winters, the straw-filled shelters provide a warm refuge to sleep and be out of the elements. Please consider purchasing a shelter from our Amazon Wish List to help a cat stay warm and dry. Please watch our Facebook page for annoucements of when shelters will become available. If you need a shelter you can pick one up on the porch of the 2 story house located in front of Pets Come First, 2451 General Potter Hwy Centre Hall.
If you are caring for feral cats and are concerned about them having adequate shelter over the winter, please consider making them an insulated shelter. Feel free to email us for directions, dimensions or any other questions you have. Your shelter should be filled with straw because it does not hold moisture and acts as an insulator.
