FCCO in the news:
"Portland Residents Band Together to Help Homeless Pets"
PetSmart Charities YouTube video released February 24, 2014
"In 2006, Portland was battling a pet overpopulation problem, just like every other major U.S. city. Their shelters took in more than 41,000 pets that year, 37% of which were euthanized. Well, if you've ever met a Portland resident, you know that they don't exactly enjoy being like everyone else. And they certainly weren't going to stand for preventable pet euthanasia in their community."
Help FCCO Help the Cats... Volunteer!
We are always looking for help at our clinics, with fundraising, and in the office. Right now we also have some specific positions we are seeking to fill right away in Portland.
General office volunteer– email caregivers and help with data entry and office projects.
Outreach volunteer– attend street fairs, farmer’s markets, and other events sharing information about our services with the public
Trap Depot – maintain a trap inventory at your home or business where caregivers can pick up and return humane traps.
Phone scheduling volunteer– pick up inbound calls, screen cats for eligibility for FCCO clinics, and assist callers with questions regarding feral cats and TNRr.

Cats and Wildlife
At the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, we believe the best option is to work collaboratively to find solutions that help cats and birds. We have worked with the Portland Audubon Society for over a decade. We share a common goal of fewer cats living outdoors. We are working together on initiatives including Cats Safe at Home™ where we encourage people to not let their pet cats roam free. Fewer free-roaming cats mean fewer feral cats born on our streets and fewer cats means less predation on wildlife.

The Animal Shelter Alliance of Portland (ASAP), of which FCCO is a founding member, wants to dramatically reduce the euthanasia of cats across the Portland Oregon metro area during the next five years. This is a collective effort - we need your help, too. Are you a feral cat caregiver? Do you have a cat that needs to be spayed/ neutered? There is help! Click here to read our caregiver information and about our spay/neuter clinics.
Do you need help getting your PET CAT spayed/neutered?
Click here for a flyer for a FREE special to get your whole Kitty and Kaboodle spayed/neutered! The special is for September 23 - 27 but don't wait to reserve your spot!
Please help us help the cats. Follow this link and print out our flyers and keep some in your car. When you are at the store, coffee shop, vet's office, church, or any place with a community bulletin board, please post one. Remember, each caregiver you reach is another cat helped, and suffering for future litters prevented!
