The Humane Society of Lebanon County at this time does not pick up stray cats from any municipalities or residents within the county. There are simply just too many of them. That coupled with a lack of funding, resources and manpower limits us to the services we can offer for stray cat problems you may have.
We love the cats as much as we love the dogs, but the cat overpopulation is much more severe than the dog overpopulation problem. An although we do not pick up stray cats, we do still offer as many services as we can in regards to stray cats.
Some of the services we offer to you in regards to the stray cats of the county is housing, food, medical attention and shelter. We will not pick up stray cats but we will accept stray cats during normal business hours at our shelter location on 150 N. Ramona Road in Myerstown, Pa 17067.
Stray cats must be brought to us in Live Humane Traps ONLY! If you do not own one or know someone who can lend you one we suggest you call your local township or police dept to see if they have one you can use or if they have personnel that can trap the cats for you.
Or second suggestion is to RENT A TRAP FROM US!
Using one of these traps you can quickly and easily begin to take care of the cat overpopulation problem in your area. Using a trap considerably deters any ones chance of being bitten or scratched and exposed to zoonotic diseases and possible requirement of the animals euthanasia. Which increases our chances of saving the animal and finding it a good home.
In an attempt to help lessen the burden of cost for housing, feeding, providing medical attention and rehabilitation services for the stray cats of the county we do charge a fee for any cat that is brought to us.
Fortunately certain townships and boroughs throughout the county have opted to pay this fee for the residents of their respective townships and boroughs. So that the overpopulation problem in their area can be dealt with quickly and seamlessly without the residents having to worry about funding the costs.
Other townships and boroughs however have refused to pay this fee for their residents and therefore the residents are responsible for those fees if they intend to bring a stray cat into the shelter. To find out whether or not your township or borough will pay this fee for you please contact the shelter.
Each municipality's policy on stray animal fees is its own and was wrought by its governing council. The Humane Society of Lebanon County cannot influence this policy in any way. Only the residents and governing councils of each municipality can dictate or change this policy during their respective meetings. To inquire about a change in this policy, or for information on contacting any municipalities, or their governing bodies for any reason, please visit our Municipalities page.
