What We Do

The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon's mission is to improve the welfare and reduce the population of feral and stray cats through spay/neuter programs and education.

The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) is a spay/neuter program for feral and stray cats living in Oregon and Southwest Washington, and we are the only organization in the area exclusively caring for free-roaming cats. Our services are targeted for feral cats who have people, known as caregivers, feeding them. The caregivers trap the cats, bring them to a clinic, and return the cats to where they are being fed. Our program is known as trap-neuter-return (TNR).

Ear tipServices offered: In addition to being spayed or neutered, each cat who participates in the program receives FVRCP (distemper) and rabies vaccines; is treated for fleas, ear mites, and other minor medical conditions; and has his or her right ear tipped for future identification (see photo at left). Cats that appear to be suffering, as determined by a veterinarian, are tested for feline leukemia (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV); all positives are euthanized.

FCCO has a free-standing spay/neuter clinic in Portland. There is a surgery suite with four surgery tables, a separate prep area, a closed anesthesia room, a laundry area and more. Click here to register for a tour.

FCCO TruckWe also have a 24-foot mobile hospital, designed specifically for spaying/neutering feral cats, with three separate rooms: a surgery suite with room for three veterinarians to operate simultaneously; a prep area, complete with sink and autoclave; and also an anesthesia room. Services provided cats on the truck are the same as at our clinic.

FCCO is a 501c3 organization supported solely through donations. We do not receive any taxpayer support or other public funding. Please make a donation today - you will make a difference in so many lives.
