A Caregiver with 3 Feral Cats and Pocket Change

Last week a caregiver from Gresham, Oregon, brought a feral cat to our spay/neuter clinic. She borrowed a friend’s car to transport the cat. She reached in her pocket and donated $1.77 – it was all she had. She returned the now-altered cat to her yard. "One done. Two more to go."

At the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon, our goal is to spay and neuter as many free-roaming cats as possible, to alleviate suffering, and to prevent future generations of cats born in the wild. In order to fulfill this goal, we help every feral cat caregiver who comes to us in need of spay/ neuter services, regardless of their ability to donate.

The good Samaritans who care for feral cats bear a huge burden, both for the cats and their communities. Not only have they taken in cats who have been dumped, abandoned, and forgotten by others, but they spend their limited time and money to improve the quality of life for these cats. Many caregivers struggle to feed themselves and their families, but still are determined to provide for the feral cats in their care, and want to do the right thing by getting them spayed and neutered. By alleviating this financial hurdle, we are able to help many more cats and people in our community.

Each spay or neuter surgery costs approximately $30 for FCCO to perform, and we are able to help all the caregivers who come to our program, no matter how much they can donate, because of supporters like you. Thank you!
