What We Do

The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon's mission is to improve the welfare and reduce the population of feral and stray cats through spay/neuter programs and education.

The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon is a trap-neuter-return (TNR) program for feral and stray cats living in Oregon. The goal of the program is to reduce suffering for existing feral cats and prevent the births and suffering of future generations. The program's services are targeted for feral and outdoor stray cats who have caregivers feeding them. The caregivers trap the cats, bring them to a clinic, and return the cats to where they are being fed with a commitment to feed the cat(s) on a permanent basis.

Ear tipServices offered: In addition to being spayed or neutered, each cat who participates in the program receives FVRCP (distemper) and rabies vaccines and topical flea prevention; is treated for ear mites and other minor medical conditions; and has his or her right ear tipped (see photo at left) for future identification. Cats that appear to be suffering, as determined by a veterinarian, are tested for feline leukemia (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV); all positives are euthanized.

FCCO has a free-standing spay/neuter clinic in Portland. There is a surgery suite with four surgery tables, a separate prep area, a closed anesthesia room, a laundry area and more. Click here to register for a tour.

FCCO TruckWe also have a 24-foot mobile hospital, designed specifically for spaying/neutering feral cats, with three separate rooms: a surgery suite with room for three veterinarians to operate simultaneously; a prep area, complete with sink and autoclave; and also an anesthesia room. Services provided cats on the truck are the same as at our clinic.

FCCO is a 501c3 organization supported solely through donations. We do not receive any taxpayer support or other public funding. Please make a donation today and help keep us on the road to ending feral cat overpopulation in Oregon.
