Hours:  Weekdays, noon – 6 p.m.; Saturdays, 11 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  Closed Sundays & holidays.

The Pet Spay/Neuter Assistance Program is funded totally by local donors, to whom we are deeply grateful.

Certificates are issued at the Shelter.  Pet owners must come in person to receive certificates.

Minimum Co-Pay Fees are collected when certificate is issued:  Dog, $35; Cat, $25

If a person can pay more, it is greatly appreciated and helps the fund keep going.  Surgeries average $100 or more per pet.

Once a pet owner has gotten the certificate, he or she makes an appointment at one of three participating vet clinics, who then bill us for the surgery.

Feral Cat Trap-Neuter-Return Program

Dog & Cat Shelter, Inc.
84 East Ridge Rd
307-674-7694

Hours:  Weekdays, noon – 6 p.m.; Saturdays, 11 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  Closed Sundays & holidays.

The Feral Cat TNR program is mainly funded by grants and is currently out of funds.  Donations are greatly appreciated.  No charge is made to land owners.

Traps are loaned to colony managers (landowners who will allow the feral cats to remain on their property and who pledge to provide shelter, water and food to the cats).  Appointments with a local veterinarian are made as cats are trapped.  The cats are spayed or neutered, treated for internal and external parasites and vaccinated for FVRCP and rabies.  The left ear is tipped to allow a glance to confirm that a particular cat has been altered and vaccinated.

We have a waiting list of colony managers, who will be called once we receive more funding.  We treat an entire colony at the same time, then move to the next colony.  Order on the list is determined by the date the colony managers apply for assistance.
