In August the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon (FCCO) will offer FREE spay/neuter services for stray and feral cats as part of a “Summer Spay Spectacular” special. Kittens weighing more than 2 pounds also qualify to be spayed/neutered.
The nonprofit spay/neuter program urges residents caring for feral or stray cats to take advantage of these free services, which include spay/neuter surgery, vaccines, treatment for fleas, ear mites and tapeworms; pain relief medication, and an ear-tip for identification. Spay/neuter prevents litters of homeless kittens, reduces unwanted mating behaviors like spraying and fighting; and improves a cat’s overall health.
The free services are performed by licensed veterinarians at FCCO’s North Portland clinic and sponsored by generous community donations. Clinics are open to feral and stray cats living in Oregon or southwest Washington.
