Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon - Portland: If 30 People Donate $10, Then Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon Can Spay or Neuter 10 Feral Cats

The Issue: Overpopulation of Pets Leads to Euthanasia

A cat can become pregnant at 5 months old, and deliver a litter of kittens two months later. Over several months, one cat can easily produce 15 kittens. Approximately six–eight million homeless cats and dogs enter animal shelters every year across the country, according to data from the Humane Society of the United States. Roughly half of these animals are adopted, and the other half are euthanized. Spaying and neutering homeless animals helps reduce overpopulation and its result, euthanasia.

The Campaign: Spay or Neuter Homeless Cats

If this Grassroots campaign raises $300, then Feral Cat Collation of Oregon can fund operations to spay or neuter 10 feral cats. Each additional $30 raised will fund an operation for another cat. In concurrence with the operations, the cats will receive analgesics, vaccines, and minor treatments, and then have their ears tipped for future identification. FCCO aims to spay or neuter more than 6,000 cats this year.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon

Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) operates a catch-and-release program to help prevent the overpopulation of feral cats. Its caregivers trap homeless cats and bring them into a freestanding clinic or 24-foot mobile hospital, where FCCO spays or neuters them and provides basic medical services as necessary. The organization has the capacity to treat many cats in a short period of time, as three veterinarians can work in the mobile hospital at one time, and four in the clinic. The vets also tip the cats' ears to identify them as having been spayed or neutered. Once the cats recover, they are sent back to where they were trapped to continue their lives outdoors.
