The 3rd Annual Catio Tour
Saturday, September 12, 2015
Join FCCO and the Audubon Society of Portland for this year's Catio Tour featuring some of the coolest catios in the Portland metro area!
The Catio Tour includes ten catios, is self-guided, and is open from 10am - 2pm. You'll see free-standing designs, those attached to the house, porches-turned-catios, and many fun features to pique your imagination!
REGISTRATION CLOSES at midnight on Thursday, September 10.
SIGN UP TODAY!
Thank you! You took a moment each day to vote for the cats and because of your effort FCCO won an Advantis Credit Union GROW grant! This $10,000 grant will be used to update our phone system. This is a purrfect example of the community rallying for the cats and it worked!
We are truly grateful for all of your support. Our gratitude also goes out to Advantis Credit Union for this incredible opportunity. You can even see us in their current ad! Purrs of thanks for helping the cats!

Exercise for Cats!
No, this isn't an exercise plan for cats to do - but an easy way for you to help raise funds to help cats! Whether you are training for a 10k or simply taking Spot for a walk, sign up with ResQWalk, pick FCCO, and help the cats with each step!
Each week ResQwalk announces a donation pool (e.g. $2,500) and in order for a group to receive donations from the pool, its supporters simply need to check-in to the app when they go for a walk. Each walker's distance is recorded in the user profile and added to the group's weekly sum. At the end of the week donations are paid out to the groups proportionally to the total distance walked. The more you walk, the more you help the cats! That's purrfect motivation for rainy winter days!
Users can view their walk history, including both time and distance traveled, and see how you've helped FCCO along the way. Reviews are great!
Originally only for Apple products, ResQWalk now works with Android, too!

Cats and Wildlife
At the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, we believe the best option is to work collaboratively to find solutions that help cats and birds. We have worked with the Portland Audubon Society for over a decade. We share a common goal of fewer cats living outdoors. We are working together on initiatives including Cats Safe at Home™ where we encourage people to not let their pet cats roam free. Fewer free-roaming cats mean fewer feral cats born on our streets and fewer cats means less predation on wildlife.

The Animal Shelter Alliance of Portland (ASAP), of which FCCO is a founding member, wants to dramatically reduce the euthanasia of cats across the Portland Oregon metro area during the next five years. This is a collective effort - we need your help, too. Are you a feral cat caregiver? Do you have a cat that needs to be spayed/ neutered? There is help! Click here to read our caregiver information and about our spay/neuter clinics.
Do you need help getting your PET CAT spayed/neutered?
Click here for a flyer for a FREE special to get your whole Kitty and Kaboodle spayed/neutered! The special is for September 23 - 27 but don't wait to reserve your spot!
Please help us help the cats. Follow this link and print out our flyers and keep some in your car. When you are at the store, coffee shop, vet's office, church, or any place with a community bulletin board, please post one. Remember, each caregiver you reach is another cat helped, and suffering for future litters prevented!
