The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.

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!
