About Ontario Feral Cat Project

Our Mission

Our mission statement: The Ontario Feral Cat Project is a non-profit organization operated by donations and volunteers. The program is designed to reduce our community’s feral and stray cat overpopulation by using a technique of trap, neuter and return (TNR) to existing monitored colonies.  Although not part of our core mission, we also try to find good, loving homes for adoptable cats and kittens. We serve Ontario, Oregon.

Our Story

The Ontario Feral Cat Project began in 2009 at the request of the Ontario Police Department, we did our first trapping on November 5, 2009.  Since then we have spayed/neutered almost 7,700 cats and kittens and we have found loving forever families for over 3,200 cats and kittens.  

Although not part of our original mission, homing adoptable cats and kittens has become a large part of what we do. In 2015 we purchased a building at the corner of NW 2nd Street and NW 1st Avenue. This purchase was made possible through a generous gift from the estate of Miss Constance McCullough. To honor Miss McCullough, the building was named after her

The Constance McCullough House has been a blessing for our organization. It has given us a place to temporarily house feral cats after they have been fixed. It also houses our many adoptables. Although we have the McCullough House we have found we cannot accommodate all the adoptable cats and kittens that need our help in Ontario. We have to find foster homes when we run out of space. Our foster families are dedicated individuals who donate their time to care for and socialize cats so that we can find permanent homes for them. If you would like to foster, please see our Volunteer page.

We partner with PetSmart in Meridian to find homes for cats and kittens that are socialized and adoptable. We also provide adoptions at the Constance McCullough House every Saturday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and by appointment.

The Ontario Feral Cat Project is run by all volunteers, we don’t have paid staff. All of our funding comes from donations and fundraising. We are so grateful to our amazing volunteers, fosters, veterinarians and their staff, and our supporters!! We couldn’t do this without these incredible people. 
We are always in need of volunteers and fosters, please let us know if you would like to make a difference in the lives of kitties.
