Summary

In honor of FCCO's recent milestone 50,000th surgery, Universal Cycles has generously offered to match all donations up to $25,000, dollar for dollar! That's a total of $50,000 raised for spaying/neutering feral and outdoor stray cats.

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?

Universal Cycles is offering a challenge match up to $25,000, dollar-for-dollar! Because FCCO is supported solely through donations, this support - and yours - is essential to helping the cats.

Potential Long Term Impact

Just last month we received 627 calls for help and spayed/neutered a record 639 cats. Imagine this: if each of these 639 cats had just one litter of four, last month alone we prevented more than 2,500 kittens from living on the streets.
