FCCO Spay/Neuter clinics for feral and stray cats



Without our spay/neuter services, feral cats would continue to breed causing needless suffering for future litters. Since 1995 we have spayed/neutered almost 60,000 cats making a huge impact on their lives as well as their caregivers.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

As the economy went into recession, the number of feral kittens being born did not recede. It is often the opposite situation during bad economic times as there is less money for spaying/ neutering, resulting in an increase in homeless animals born. FCCO is seeing more people seeking our services, the majority being low-income residents. Our clinics allow caregivers to get spay/neuter services for their feral cats which allows both humans and felines to have better control over their situations.

How will this project solve this problem?

FCCO's "trap-neuter-return" (TNR) program reduces suffering for existing feral cats and prevents the birth and suffering of future generations. Controlling a caregiver's number of cats reduces their burden of providing for the cats.

Potential Long Term Impact

In just the past year alone FCCO spayed/neutered almost 6,000 cats. If left unaltered, these cats could have produced an additional 22,000 kittens in a year - born on the streets and destined to live difficult lives on our streets.
