Spay and Neuter Clinic Offers Critical Care to Four-Legged Friends in Taos

  • Local Champion: Four Corners Animal League
  • Date Funded: April 7, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $6,350

A shortage of affordable, accessible spay and neuter services in Taos County has created a pet overpopulation crisis with litters of puppies and kittens being abandoned, dog packs forming, and pets being hit by cars. Large colonies of feral cats are breeding and spreading preventable diseases. To address the problem, a board member of Four Corners Animal League hoped to purchase a fully equipped mobile spay and neuter van—but because it was cost prohibitive, they decided to work with Pecos People for Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) to host a weekend clinic in Taos where they spayed/neutered more than 50 animals. Funding from the LOR Foundation was used to contract with PAWS, and Four Corners used the opportunity to raise money for additional clinics.
