Shelters are wonderful, fosters are fantastic, transports rock, adoption is to be commended, BUT the ultimate answer is to spay and neuter. We have had great successes but still so much more to go! Butte Spay/Neuter is always in need of funding for our clinics (they may be free or donation only to the public, but they are expensive to host) and also funding for our $50-off s/n certificates. Donations can be mailed to PO Box 544, Butte MT 59703.

The Butte Spay/Neuter Task Force hosts low cost/no cost spay/neuter clinics to help low to moderate income households with the spaying and neutering of their companion animals.

If you need help getting your animal spayed or neutered, please call 406-782-5110.

Butte Spay Neuter Task Force has teamed up with Montana Spay Neuter Task Force in offering $50 off certificates for the spaying/neutering of companion animals for low income to medium income households.
Our certificate program is now offered statewide for folks that need a little help getting their animals spayed or neutered. We will send you a $50 off certificate, you will make an appointment with your veterinarian, we will pay the $50 to the veterinarian clinic and you will pick up the rest of the bill. Please call 406-782-5110 to get a certificate.

Who would have known that on January 16th of this year, when we visited a cat overpopulation situation in the Gold Creek area, we would be into a rescue situation of 75 cats and kittens. We were only going to check it out and possibly take 10 cats and kittens to start with. That was the plan. We went home with close to 20. This started a four month operation of trapping, vet care (of course they were all sick), spaying and neutering and finding homes for these beautiful creatures. Each of these cats and kittens have such personality and beautiful markings. Some want to be your best friend, others just want a safe and stable place to live with little human contact.

Many folks were contacted about this situation, but no one showed up. The Butte Spay Neuter Task Force took on this project because of the amazing cats that were at this location. These cats did not ask to be in this mess nor did they deserve to be. We knew going in would be a very expensive, time consuming project – but they were worth it.

We have found homes for many of the cats, but do still have some that are available for adoption. Some would need a cushy barn or shop home, some just need additional love and patience. We have placed, either adopted into private homes or transferred to rescue/shelter, 57 of these cats and kittens.

We are always looking for people to help fundraise. If this is something you would like to help us with, please or call 782-5110.
