FREE-bruary Spay/Neuter Special for feral and stray cats

Portland, OR —The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) is offering FREE spay/neuter services in February for feral and stray cats. This special is in honor of Spay/Neuter Awareness Month. Now is the perfect time to spay/neuter cats to prevent litters of kittens in the spring.  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, vaccines, flea treatment, antibiotics, pain relief medication and an ear-tip for identification. Surgeries are performed at the FCCO clinic in SW Portland and supported through generous donations from the community.

FCCO has humane live traps available to safely catch and transport the cats. And they will train you on how to use them - even if you haven’t trapped before you will be successful. [see trapping video here]

Have a heart and help the feral and stray cats in your neighborhood this February.

Clinics are held Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, plus Sunday February 19. To schedule an appointment call 503-797-2606 or visit feralcats.com. Space is limited. Call today.

The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, a 501c3 organization supported solely through donations, is a trap-neuter-return (TNR) program for feral and stray 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. The organization has spayed and neutered more than 83,500 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.
