FCCO, funded solely through donations, is a spay/neuter program for feral, stray, and abandoned cats. With a team of nearly 900 volunteers including vetereinarians, technicians, and only six full-time and three part-time employees, we hold over 600 spay/neuter clinics per year in the Portland metro area and throughout Oregon.
During a clinic the cats are brought to us by caregivers who are feeding them. We then spay or neuter the cat, and provide other basic medical care such as vaccines and parasite control. Once the cats have recovered from anesthesia the caregivers return them to where they were trapped and continue to provide them with food and shelter.
FCCO currently spays and neuters approximately 6,500 cats per year, and has helped more than 64,500 since its inception in 1995.
Mission: The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon is dedicated to improve the welfare and reduce the population of feral and stray cats through spay/neuter programs and education.

Hi, I am a college student at Concordia University interested in some volunteer work around animals. I am trying to get in vet school and feel this would look good on my resume. I also need hours and would love to help out on a Thursday or Tuesday afternoon 1-5 or even a weekend. You can reach me at 573-789-5993 or email@example.com
