Free Kibble
Mimi Ausland, 12, of Bend, Ore., was looking for a way to help the animals at her local animal shelter. She'd been volunteering there since she was 7 years old and knew how great the need was. Then she saw a site her dad, Kelly Ausland, was going to each day. He'd click on it and people half a world away would get a little rice. A light bulb went off and the site, www.freekibble.com, launched April 1. The store donated 10 pieces of kibble every time someone went to the site and answered the daily trivia question. Right or wrong, the cats win! All you have to do is click on an answer, and every day you do, it will provide 10 pieces of kibble to Animal Shelters to help feed their hungry cats.

The FCPGA in partnerships with volunteers & veterinarians coordinate over 350 spay and neuters annually.


"Feral Cat Colonies" are maintained by people who feed them, known as caregivers. Caregivers receive assistance with sterilizing the cats and providing medical care.
Occasionally, feral cats become friendly with the caregiver and can be socialized to become a family pet. In addition, many cats we help are actually abandoned or stray cats that are homeless by no fault of their own. Often the FCPGA can find an adoptive family for these abandoned pets.


The other truly feral cats are not happy being pets. They can become stressed and aggressive if forced to live indoors. They prefer to live in their cat colony or similar environment. Attached is one such colony which is provided food daily from our Cat Colony Feeding Station Teams. The other pictures are at another feeding station using a feral cat feeder volunteers built.

We are able to accomplish a tremendous amount in a challenging economy; there is still much work to be done. We appreciate your continued support and donations to make this program possible. Our volunteers have fun and make furry friends, so let us know if you'd like to join in.


Remember, one person CAN make a difference!!!!!
