Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon
FCCO's mission is to improve the welfare and reduce the population of feral and stray cats through spay/neuter programs and education.
Bottom Line for Portland
This year we will spay/neuter nearly 7,000 homeless cats. The pandemic greatly increased the need for our services and our clinics were booked far in advance all year. FCCO remains the only program in the area dedicated to spaying/neutering feral and stray cats, and we are working to expand our capacity to help even more cats.
In our climate cats can have up to three litters per year! Each surgery prevents future generations of kittens living on our streets, improves the life of that cat, reduces stress for their caregiver, and enhances livability in our community.
We started feeding a feral kitten last November. By spring she was bringing her six kittens up to eat, too! I could see this was going to get out of control very quickly. Thank goodness there was a way to bring the situation under control! Thank you!

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
It's a core value of FCCO that our services be affordable and accessible to everyone – and approximately 40% of feral cat caregivers have a household income of less than $25,000. While our services are provided for a suggested donation of $50 per cat, this can still be too much for many people or those who are feeding many cats. We don’t turn anyone away based on how much they can contribute or where they live.
Your GIFT WILL BE MATCHED to help twice as many cats! Our good friends at Western Partitions Inc. (WPI), FCCO's Board of Directors, and a longtime friend of the cats, all offered donation matches to help us spay/neuter more cats! We'll reach these match goals when we raise $40,000 through Give!Guide.
