About
What We Do

The Visalia Feral Cat Coalition seeks to reduce cat overpopulation by practicing, teaching, and raising awareness of Trap Neuter Return Manage (TNRM). We believe through community cooperation and outreach we can eliminate the suffering of these abandoned animals by breaking the reproductive cycle. We are committed to the well-being of our local feral and community cats.
The Visalia Feral Cat Coalition targets identified problem areas in Visalia, California and surrounding cities. We work with the local residents and/or business owners by education on TNR and feral cat colony management. In cooperation with the residents or business owners, a mass trapping is scheduled. Cats are trapped and taken to a clinic where they are neutered, vaccinated and their ears are tipped. Kittens and socialized cats are fostered by volunteers and placed into homes. Healthy adult feral/community cats are returned to their colony site where designated caretakers provide food, shelter and continuing care. Follow up trappings are conducted for missed or stray cats.

Visalia Feral Cat Coalition is dedicated to improving our community and the lives of our furry friends, and I'd like to express our gratitude to the VFCC Board, members, and volunteers for their invaluable assistance in organizing an extensive food distribution for the community. Thanks to their efforts, many individuals in need will have a steady supply of food in the coming days.As many have inquired about the source of the donated food, I can happily share that it was generously provided by a local business (not Amazon) that collaborated closely with us to make this initiative a success. I've requested permission to disclose the name of the business and will do so once I receive their approval. They graciously accommodated my frantic efforts to arrange transportation for the food and secure the necessary equipment, which was a challenging task, especially during the holiday season and amidst everyone's busy schedules. Given that this was our first endeavor on such a grand scale, the fact that we were able to pull it off is truly remarkable.I want to extend a special acknowledgment to 

STAY FRESH EXPRESS LLC. for their pivotal role in picking up and delivering the food, with Phil even becoming an integral part of our team! 

Additionally, Redwood Distribution collaborated with us when our original truck arrangement fell through, allowing us to postpone the pickup to the following week. We understand the challenges of managing such a large volume of food in your warehouse, and we truly appreciate their cooperation.

Thank you, Farmers Laros Fruit Stand for the forklift and all Carmen Laro’s hard work.

TNR Vouchers

Visalia Feral Cat Coalition offers TNR Vouchers for getting feral/community cats spayed/neutered with a $30 copay. The cats need to be living on their own in order to qualify for the program and the ear will be tipped. To get voucher codes Click Here. We also loan traps, on a first come first serve basis.

We wish we could help all cats, but we are focused on feral/community cats. We don’t have the funds to pay for spaying and neutering non-feral/community cats. We are all volunteers and 100% donation dependent, so we are very limited on what we can do.

Our vouchers can be used at:

Our Vets
Companion Animal Medical Center

Without Companion Animal Medical Clinic we would not have a program. Dr. Kuswa has volunteered countless hours and resources to the Visala Feral Cat Coalition. Dr. Kuswa and her staff volunteer for our mass trappings giving up their weekends to spay and neuter feral cats. Thank you Companion Animal Medical Clinic. Due to the current situation you need to contact them for appointments for your feral cats and then trap the night before the day they give you. Cats have to be in a humane trap. Please keep your cage covered so the cat is less tramatized. Companion Animal’s address is 5229 W Walnut Ave, Visalia, CA 93277, 559 625-9920.

VOSPCA
