A Vet-Led Spay and Neuter Program Helps Address Lander’s Feral Cat Problem

  • Local Champion: Lander Spay and Neuter
  • Date Funded: June 6, 2021
  • Grant Amount: $4,600

Lander has a feral cat overpopulation problem, especially downtown. Not only do the cats carry diseases, their suffering—from malnourishment, illness, fighting, and more—is painful for local residents and businesses to witness. Local veterinarian Lannie Hamilton knew spay and neuter programs could reduce rural feral cat populations by as much as 99 percent. She and volunteers from Lander Spay and Neuter had an idea for solving this issue. Their plan included a trap-neuter-return program targeting about 60 cats in downtown Lander. LOR’s support helped pay for needed surgery materials, traps, and public awareness materials.

This project is fiscally sponsored by the Lander Community Foundation
