Cat Food Drive

Help feed a hungry kitty this winter!

You can help feed a hungry feral or stray cat through our annual Season's Feedings holiday cat food drive! Season's Feedings is our annual cat food drive for new, unopened cat food. Our goal is to collect 2,000 pounds of food by year-end. The food gathered during the drive goes to feral cat caregivers who bring in their cats for spay/neuter. 

You can help by picking up extra cat food next time you shop and donating to our Season's Feedings drive. Cat food donations can be dropped off at our clinic (call 503-797-2606 for directions) or purchased through our Wish List on Amazon.com (if you purchase food through Amazon, be sure to tell us you sent it so we can thank you).

Currently the following stores are also collecting food - and they are offering a 10% discount* on the purchase of food for the Season's Feedings Drive. Big purrs to them!

167 Cats at Special Weekend Clinic

A special all-weekend clinic

Saturday, October 3rd: 127 cats from Othello, Washington were spayed/neutered at our clinic. Sunday, October 4th: An additional 40 cats from Othello were spayed/neutered at our clinic. 

At this point the Othello team feels like most of the cats have been trapped and brought to our clinic. There is a plan in place with the one veterinarian serving their community to spay/neuter any remaining cats. This highlights the importance of the eartip indicating that a cat has already been spayed/neutered.

The cats were trapped and transported by a team of volunteers who work on an online show called Animal House TV. While filming an episode of the show they found an exploding population of feral and stray cats in this rural, depressed community. They wanted to help them. They worked with the community for months and once they had them on board for Trap-Neuter-Return, they reached out to FCCO. 

Support spay/neuter for feral and stray cats. It makes a difference in so many lives.
