FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Petco Foundation Invests in Lifesaving Work of Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon
Grant will extend efforts to spay/neuter more feral and stray cats

Portland, Ore. — The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) is offering FREE spay/neuter services through May 25th for feral and stray cats. This special is funded by a grant from the Petco Foundation. Now is the perfect time to spay/neuter cats to prevent litters of kittens in the spring.

Spring breeding season is in full-swing, and many community cats will be exhibiting nuisance behaviors, including fighting, spraying, and yowling. These are associated with breeding and are reduced or eliminated when cats are fixed. 

Individuals who are feeding feral or stray cats qualify for this special offer, regardless of income or where they live. Services include spay/neuter surgery, rabies and distemper vaccines, flea treatment, and an ear-tip for identification. Surgeries are performed at the FCCO spay/neuter clinic in SW Portland.

FCCO has humane live traps available to safely catch and transport cats. They will train you on how to use the traps and on best practices for catching feral cats so that even if you haven’t trapped before you’ll be successful. [see trapping video here]

Help the feral and stray cats in your neighborhood this spring and support FCCO in improving the welfare and reducing the population of feral and stray cats. To schedule an appointment call 503-797-2606 or visit feralcats.com and mention the promo code SPRING18. Space is limited, so call today.
