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 $30-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.

2018 Santa Paws Info
The dust has settled (or the snow I should say) and I think we have recovered from Santa Paws, we had a record breaking weekend in 2017. Total money brought in was $1,876 -- CVS gave us a huge price break on pictures -- what should have cost us $568.88 cost us $194.48 -- so please support CVS -- they are amazing. Postage was $83.33 -- making our profit $1,598.19 -- AWESOME!!!

Thank you to everyone who spend the weekend at the mall - Santa (Alan English), Gregg Edelen, photographer. We could not do it without either of you two. You guys are so patient with the animals, kids and parents. Thanks to Alana Ferko and the staff at the Butte Plaza Mall for hosting our group. Linda Rosin and Micki Palmer for working the desk, taking money and keeping everything organized and helping clean up on Sunday. Joe Kujawa for, of course, bringing your cat for a picture but also for coming in Sunday night and helping us pack everything up!

This fundraiser supports our certificate program. The final numbers aren't in yet for 2017 (I'm still paying bills) but to date we have redeemed 149 certificates, for a total of $4,770.00. Our certificate program gives folks that need a little help ($30) to go to their veterinarian and get their animals fixed. So this $1,600 will be put to good use -- we will be able to help approximately 54 animals with certificates.

We host the local, no cost/low cost spay/neuter clinics at the Excelsior Street building and also offer $30-off spay/neuter certificates redeemable at most local veterinarians. These garage sales are just one of the many ways we earn money to be able to sponsor our clinics. If you have any questions, please call me at 782-5110.
Our T-shirts are here!! If anyone would like to purchase a T-shirt, please call Phyllis at 782-8034 or Judy at 782-5110. They are $15 each.

For those that do not fit into the low income bracket, but need a little help getting your animal spayed or neutered, we do offer $30 off certificates that veterinarians in Butte and the surrounding area will honor. Please call 406-782-5110 and leave your name and mailing address and a certificate will be sent to you. Your veterinarian will credit you $30 and bill Butte Spay Neuter Task Force.

A great big Thank You to the Bissell Pet Foundation and the Sands Memorial Foundation for grants to help the animals of our community, and southwest Montana in general. We can continue our clinics and $30-off spay/neuter certificates. With these grants, we hope to spread our positive impact to surrounding small communities, and to especially try to help the felines who people deem as disposable.

The Bernice Barbour Foundation of Wellington, Florida, has generously granted $1,000 to put toward the purchase of an autoclave. Funding for the certificate program comes from fundraisers and donations.

We have partial funding for spay/neuter clincs from Bob Barker's DJ&T grant. Thanks!
