FCCO Helps "Mattie" Finally Get Relief!
Watch her story on KGW-TV
FCCO has helped more than 68,000 feral and stray cats but staff was truly shocked by what they saw on July 17th: a cat, now known as "Mattie," came to the spay/neuter clinic with her body covered in matted fur 3 inches thick. She had been struggling to move and couldn't groom herself.
FCCO's Operations Director, Leah Kennon, CVT, said, "In my 16 years with FCCO I've never seen mats this severe. I can't imagine wearing this coat in the hot weather we've had."
FCCO is funded completely by donations. Mattie's caregiver, Roger, was extremely grateful to learn about FCCO's services. He was very concerned for her well-being and admitted he feared that euthanasia was his only other option.
Donate now in honor of Mattie and help other cats like her live better lives!
This stray cat fortunately has a caregiver looking out for her. He doesn't know where she came from, but has been feeding her and knew she needed help. Mattie was returned to her caregiver spayed, vaccinated, and with a whole new summer 'do. Watch Mattie's story on KGW-TV.

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."

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.
