About Us

The Feral Cat Coalition is a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the overpopulation of feral and abandoned cats through free, humane Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).

Founded in 1992, Feral Cat Coalition has spayed and neutered more than 50,000 community cats, 24,000 of which surgeries were performed at our stationary clinic Feral and Friends, which opened in 2012.

Since then, FCC has held weekly clinics, striving to fix from 30 to 50 cats per clinic.

You can make a clinic reservation by calling FCC’s hotline toll-free at (855) FCC-CATS or by emailing us.

Our Employees

Audrey Stratton

Audrey Stratton, Clinic Supervisor
Audrey was born in San Diego and raised in the community of Ocean Beach. She was often found at the beach, inviting herself into people’s yards to play with their dogs or pet neighborhood cats. She has spent almost her entire working career in animal welfare and knew it was her calling. She started working at San Diego Humane Society at the age of 18 and eventually took a position with Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas, where she worked for several years. While working at RCHS, she discovered her passion for neonatal kittens and canine behavior. Audrey built the RCHS foster program and spent many years training neonatal kitten fosters. She also spent a lot of time working with undersocialized dogs.

After her time in the shelters, she started working in animal medicine to gain more experience. Nearly 10 years ago, Audrey discovered a massive colony of cats living at a jetty in Mission Bay. She contacted FCC, who teamed up with ECAR and helped her TNR 80 cats and rescue numerous kittens. Together, Audrey and FCC created the “Jetty Cats Project,” a managed colony that now has fewer than 30 cats!

Audrey spent the next five years volunteering with FCC through their spay/neuter clinics and TNR projects. Five years later, she joined the FCC Board of Directors and also accepted the position of clinic supervisor. Audrey is very passionate about the mission of FCC and believes we are the true underdogs in animal welfare.

In her spare time, Audrey is a diehard San Diego Gulls and Anaheim Ducks hockey fan.

Kim Guyer

Kim Guyer, Clinic Technician and Shelter Return To Field Coordinator
Kim is a Navy brat who was born in North Carolina but raised everywhere. She moved every three years while growing up. She started school in Oahu, Hawaii and graduated in Key West, Florida. She attended Florida State University.

Kim lives with two dogs and five cats. She has worked in veterinary medicine since 1996. The first cat she ever TNR’d lived in a hole in the wall of a housing unit she lived in while in Panama. After neighborhood kids found the cat and her kittens, Kim had her spayed and then returned her to her home. Kim has since then returned more than 500 cats to their outdoor homes. She has been with FCC for more than four years.

Lindsay Snook

Lindsay Snook, Reservation Coordinator
Lindsay moved to San Diego over 30 years ago with her military family and would not leave. She grew up in North County and settled in East County with her partner, Larry. Like many San Diegans, Lindsay was unaware of Feral Cat Coalition until she needed help neutering a community cat in Chula Vista.

Lindsay started out volunteering with East County Animal Rescue to care for adoptable cats at their Petco and PetSmart adoption centers. She joined Orphan Kitten Club’s Full Circle Trap Team and worked to trap/neuter/return at multiple colonies throughout San Diego. Lindsay began volunteering at Feral Cat Coalition clinics and found her happy place. Thanks to a feral mama who gave birth inside a trap, Lindsay is now an East County Animal Rescue foster for feral mamas and their kittens.

Lindsay is proud to work for Feral Cat Coalition because this high impact organization holds such a strong focus on the cats’ wellbeing that it is borderline unprecedented. Although she would rather be prepping cats for surgery, her perpetual optimism lends itself to answering inquiries about FCC services and scheduling reservations for upcoming clinics. In her free time, Lindsay and her partner socialize their foster kittens. She enjoys playing video games on her Nintendo Switch and watching horror movies of all kinds.

Jamie Gordon

Jamie Gordon, Clinic Assistant
Jamie was born in the little desert city of Palmdale and moved to San Diego to get her bachelor’s in biology at UCSD. This is where she rediscovered the veterinary field and realized she wants to be a vet. She is now working toward that goal while gaining experience at FCC as well as at an emergency animal hospital.

Jamie has always had a love for animals. She founded her Retired Toms and Queens project with relinquished, abandoned, and former street cats. These animals have highly impacted her focus on socializing and acclimating eligible retired toms and queens to the beauty of living an indoor life. She has since expanded her brood to include medical foster cats and she currently fosters for Rescue House.

In her free time, Jamie enjoys watching TV and playing video games while snuggling with her cats. Her other interests include building and design. She has engineered so many aspects of our Feral and Friends clinic that she is fondly referred to as our Engineering Department.

Dr. Sulani Grindle

Sulani Grindle, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Feral Cat Coalition Medical Director
Dr. Grindle has lived in San Diego most of her life and completed her undergraduate education at UCSD. She has always loved working with animals and wanted to be a veterinarian when she was little, but it was volunteering with Feral Cat Coalition as an undergrad that gave her the extra push to pursue a veterinary degree.

Dr. Grindle saw the huge need for skilled doctors to donate their time to help some of the most neglected and at-risk animals in our society. During her time at The Ohio State University, she pursued extra training in high volume spay/neuter procedures as well as dentistry. She is thrilled to have come full circle to return to the origination that inspired her and splits her time as a high volume surgeon and as a general practitioner.

Her additional training in dentistry has allowed FCC to provide much-needed care for the many cats who come through the clinics with broken teeth and painful mouths. Instead of euthanasia or releasing animals with painful conditions, we are now able to provide a level of care that is unfortunately rarely available for stray and community cats. She hopes to continue to be heavily involved in TNR and looks forward to many years of working together with FCC to provide medical care to the animals who need it the most.

In her spare time, Dr. Grindle likes to garden and talk friends and family into adopting one of her many foster cats.

Natasha Nichols

Natasha Nichols, Anesthesia Technician
Natasha has worked in the veterinary and pet care industry since 2011 and has always been deemed the cat lady of the clinic. She joined the Feral Cat Coalition in 2021 to help serve in the mission of improving the lives of cats across San Diego County. Natasha is also the founder of Tabby Manor, a purr-fessional cat sitting service specializing in care for senior and special needs cats.

Natasha has been a cat lover and meowmmy all of her life and currently has three purrbabies of her own: littermates Caesar and Sphinx, whom she rescued in 2008 at just 4 weeks old, and Jasmine, whom she rescued in 2014 as an abandoned stray. In her spare time she loves making pet bow ties and just relaxing and snuggling with the kittos.
