The goal of our program is to reduce suffering for existing feral cats and to prevent the births and suffering of future generations. Our services are targeted for feral cats who have caregivers feeding them. These caregivers trap the cats, bring them to a clinic, and return the cats to where they are being fed with a commitment to feed the cat(s) on a permanent basis.
Results: Since our inception in 1995, we have spayed/neutered over 51,000 cats!

As the Honorary Chair at this year’s annual Gala/Furball, I am very proud to say that it was a pleasure to work with this organization. Their passion, dedication, and hard work is highly commendable. It was a wonderful, well organized event that was enjoyed by all who attended. It was also very successful as a fund-raiser and achieved financial goals.

I reviewed an earlier comment in November of 2012 regarding “shill bidding”. I was confused by this posting. I have participated at many of FCCO Gala’s as a bidder/donor and I have never seen this behavior as it is described. These are professional events with a dual purpose to- raise funds to support the mission and to provide a fun evening for all who attend.

As the Honorary Chair for this year’s Gala, I was very involved with all aspects of it. I can assure anyone that this behavior of “shill bidding” did not take place. What did take place was a group of very generous people donated items for the gala – both silent and oral items. The attendees bid on these items with the proceeds going to fund the mission of FCCO. Certainly both the donors and staff want to see each item bring in as much money as possible, but there is very little they can do in this regard except to continually share their mission and to appeal to everyone to help and support.
Unfortunately, negative comments such as this one on “shill bidding” can tarnish the reputation of a wonderful organization. FCCO is one of the most professional, dedicated, honest organizations I have worked with and they would never do anything as described.
