Celebrating World Spay Day on February 27
Portland, Ore. — A stitch in time saves nine…lives, in this case! February 27, 2018 is World Spay Day. The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) is offering FREE spay/neuter services for feral and stray cats and specials for pet cats in honor of World Spay Day. The day is an important reminder of the importance of spaying/neutering to save lives and improve the lives of animals in our community.
Now is the time to spay/neuter cats to prevent litters of kittens. As spring approaches, breeding season begins for unaltered cats. It is easy for a person feeding one outdoor cat this winter to find themselves feeding 20 cats by fall unless they get the cats spayed/neutered. Bringing cats in to FCCO’s spay/neuter clinics now will prevent a cat population boom from happening to you.
Individuals feeding feral or stray cats qualify for these free services, regardless of income or where they live. Pet cat specials are for those on public assistance or are low-income living in Multnomah, Washington, Clark or Clackamas County. Surgeries are performed by licensed veterinarians at the FCCO spay/neuter clinic in SW Portland and are supported through generous donations from the community.
To schedule an appointment call 503-797-2606 or visit feralcats.com today. Celebrate World Spay Day by helping reduce the number of cats born homeless in our region.
