The Fix Our Ferals mission is to humanely end overpopulation of cats and dogs in San Francisco’s East Bay. We make spay/neuter accessible and affordable for cats and dogs cared for by the members of the public and rescue organizations. We promote and actively support Trap-Neuter-Return of community cats. We support retaining animals in their homes and keeping them out of shelters by helping their guardians with other than spay/neuter surgeries.
We are a non profit surgical clinic for cats and dogs We provide spay/neuter surgery for cats and dogs, TNR for free roaming community cats and urgent non spay/neuter surgeries referred to us by local veterinarians. Our goal is to ensure that everyone has access to high quality affordable surgery
I have volunteered with Fix Our Ferals (FOF) as a phonescreener for a few years, and it continues to be a great experience. FOF helps caretakers of feral cats get the information and resources they need for spay/neuter and other concerns. I am still learning more about feral cat and related community and neighborhood issues. It is very satisfying to be able to help the callers to the FOF hotline. Fix Our Ferals is an amazing organization and extremely valuable to the cats and the people who care about them.
Very well organised for such a big effort, the cats are well cared for and treated with the appropriate respect. Would definitely recommend this experience for anyone who wants to gain some hands-on animal experience.
Fix Our Ferals is unique in that in helps local people do the right thing for the cats in their neighborhood, and at their workplace. I feel very good about being a phone screener, as I can take calls directly off the hotline and respond to the caller with solid information, resources, and occasionally hands-on help. The volunteers and leadership in this organization are fantastic- always helpful, friendly, and open to new perspectives.
If you sincerely care about humane treatment of cats, and want to join with people from all walks of life to accomplish that goal, this is the place to volunteer!
