Since our founding in 1995, the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) has spayed/neutered and vaccinated more than 89,000 cats in Oregon and SW Washington. We are supported primarily through community donations and have almost 200 active volunteers. FCCO's donation-based services are targeted for feral or stray cats who have caregivers feeding them. The caregivers trap the cats, bring them to a clinic, and return the cats to where they are being fed with a commitment to feed the cat(s) on an ongoing basis. FCCO also provides low-cost services for pet cats too, with a spay/neuter surgery appointment!
