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.

FCCO TruckThe 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 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.

FCCO's 24-foot mobile hospital, designed specifically for spaying/neutering feral cats, has 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. 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 Ear tipother minor medical conditions; and has his or her right ear tipped 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 also has a free-standing spay/neuter clinic in Portland in addition to our ongoing mobile program. The surgery suite has four surgery tables allowing us to have an additional doctor performing spays thereby increasing our efficiency. This is an exciting step for our organization and the feral cats who need our services. The demand for our compassionate services outstrips our capacity in all the cities we serve.

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.
