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.
