Cat project finds holiday homes

The Oregon Cat Project in Lake Oswego is hoping for both adoptions and donations this holiday season.
Clackamas County's feline shelter is a no-kill rescue site, so there is no ticking clock for any cat or kitten. Adoption fees have been cut in half this year to $40, so when people adopt a cat from the Oregon Cat, they are actually saving two lives: the cat they adopt and the one that gets to take his space.
Donations are also needed for general cat upkeep and to make spaying and neutering more accessible. Donations can be made online on TOCP's website or at any U.S. Bank.
For holiday hours, more information or to see the cats currently available, go to TheOregonCat.Org.
The Oregon Cat Adoption Center is at 342 B Ave., in Lake Oswego.
Plans for 2012 include a mobile adoption center to travel the city making cats more accessible to adopters, a new statewide program to fund spay and neuter surgeries for cats and dogs, and a feline medical clinic offering spay/neuter surgeries for deeply discounted prices for the public and other rescues.
