"Word of Mouth" is consistently the number one way that caregivers feeding feral and stray cats find out about the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) and our spay/neuter services. Knowing that, we have greatly increased our outreach campaigns in the past year to include a Facebook and Twitter presence, as well as providing flyers through the food bank and veterinary hospitals, as well as posting them on bulletin boards around town. Flyers are available in Spanish as well as English. We encourage everyone to spread the word about our services to their friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.
Anyone can be a caregiver - they just might not be talking about the stray cat that comes every morning to their back porch for food. But as long as there are intact feral and outdoor stray cats, litters of homeless kittens will continue to be born at an exponential rate. One caregiver recently reported that she had spayed/neutered “all but one of the cats” in the colony of ferals that she feeds. She now has an additional eight mouths to feed.
This past year we spayed/neutered almost 700 more cats than the previous year and hope to help 6,500 this next year. We will continue to get the word out about our program and services, but need your help. Follow our links and please spread the word!
