FCCO, funded solely through donations, is a spay/neuter program for feral, stray, and abandoned cats. With a team of over 200 active volunteers including veterinarians, vet techs, and only 12 employees, we hold over 300 spay/neuter clinics per year at our new facility in SW Portland.
During a clinic the cats are brought to us by the caregivers who are feeding them. We then spay/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/neuters approximately 7,000 cats per year, and has helped more than 87,000 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
