Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon

A spay/neuter program for cats, services are no-cost and low-cost to improve cats' health while reducing future generations of feral cats.
More than 8,000 cats will come through FCCO’s doors this year. Every single one has her own story, but they all share one thing in common: if someone hadn’t taken action, these cats would be stuck in an endless cycle of breeding.
“I am so grateful for your help – helping me give Keek a better life,” Leslie told us. It was a bad situation when Keek showed up in Leslie’s cow barn during the fire evacuations in in the Fall of 2020. “I suspect she belonged to someone who had to evacuate because I was at one point able to touch her but then, after trying to hold her, I was no longer allowed near her,” she said.
Wanting to do the right thing, Leslie made sure Keek had food and water. Keek, in turn, presented two litters of kittens.
Leslie was able to get the kittens adopted out with help from friends and local rescues but then when she heard about FCCO’s services she made an appointment. It took three attempts but Leslie was finally able to trap Keek and bring her in to FCCO to be spayed.
“I wanted to prevent having to deal with 2 to 3 litters of kittens a year,” Leslie said. “Now she is waiting for me on the haystack every morning with a smile on her face – and I have a big smile on my face, too.”
It’s your support that allows us to be there for cats like Keek, and their caregivers who want to help them.
