The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, a 501c3 organization supported solely through donations, is a spay/neuter program for feral, stray and pet cats living in Oregon and southwest Washington. Its mission is to improve the welfare and reduce the population of feral cats in our area. The program's services are targeted for feral cats who have caregivers feeding them. 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). Feral and stray cat services all provided at no charge. Low cost services are available for pet cats. The organization has spayed and neutered more than 95,000 cats since its inception in 1995.

Spay/Neuter Awareness Month is an annual campaign by the Humane Society of the United States that highlights the importance of spay/neuter programs to prevent pet overpopulation.
