PARK COUNTY, WYOMING, ANIMAL SHELTER
If you have a dog or cat that needs to be altered and you aren’t able to afford to take your pet to a local veterinarian, you are encouraged to sign up for the PCAS Low Cost Spay/Neuter clinics.
The next Spay/Neuter Clinic will be in the fall.
Watch for more information on dates as it becomes available.
For our friends who are able to afford to help with the approximate cost of $5,000 per clinic, you may go online on this website under ‘Donate’ and specify that your donation is earmarked for the Spay/Neuter clinic. Gifts of any amount are appreciated, and helps those less fortunate in our community to be able to have their animals spayed or neutered. The Spay/Neuter Clinics have had an impact by lowering the number of feral cats reproducing in the area, and we have seen a decrease in the number of feral cats being brought to the clinics. Thank you to all who are helping in this worthwhile effort to reduce all unwanted cat numbers in a humane way.
PCAS will continue to have two dog and cat Spay/Neuter clinics each year, one in the spring, and one in the fall. The Park County Animal Shelter, with help from fundraisers, grants and donations, is able to offer the Spay/Neuter clinics for low-income families who need help getting their pets spayed or neutered and vaccinated for rabies and distemper. We also provide help for individuals who care for feral cat colonies.
The Park County Animal Shelter’s goal is to reduce unwanted pets and feral cats in Park County by providing low-cost or no-cost Spay/Neuter clinics.
Spay/Neuter clinics make a difference: statistics from various animal groups show that one un-spayed female cat and one un-neutered male cat and their offspring can produce over 420,000 kittens in 7 years. For dogs, this figure is 50,000.
PCAS began the Spay/Neuter program in 2010 with help from Montana Spay/Neuter Task Force and has held 14 clinics since then.
We sincerely thank our sponsors, donors, and volunteers:
- Boot and Bottle – use of their facility
- Buffalo Bill Cody Motor Lodge – room for vets and techs
- West Park Hospital – oxygen and linens
- Thrivent Financial Cody – snacks and lunch for the clinics
- Volunteers – make the clinics possible. They check animals in and out, do prep and recovery, and clean up.
Our March 2017 clinics helped 37 dogs and 47 cats, 15 of them feral.
