The pandemic has hit hard in many places, in many ways. One impact has been a significant decrease in the availability of affordable spay/neuter options. Likely a direct impact, the need for help with services for feral and stray cats has increased substantially. As a result, the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon is facing a record number of cats spayed/neutered this year.
Like almost everyone, we've made changes in the last 18 months. And while we weren't setting out to increase capacity, we have been able to adjust to help more cats at each clinic. At one recent clinic we helped 115 feral and stray cats - and kittens, too. By spaying/neuter kittens before they start breeding - as early as 5 months old - we ensure they never add to the numbers of cats living on the streets.
A total of 906 feral and stray cats came to our clinic in August. That's a lot of cats in a short period, but for each one of those individual cats, their life has been improved significantly forever. Thank you for your role in helping them!
