Operation Nip and Tuck
Since 2003, Beartooth Humane Alliance has provided an annual free spay/neuter clinic for the dogs and cats of residents of Carbon County, Montana. Our clinic, dubbed Operation Nip and Tuck, is held over two days each fall. The primary goal of this free service is to target unsupervised barn cats and feral cats and to benefit those residents who are unable to afford this procedure for their pet. If you are not a limited-income resident we would appreciate if you would use the services of your local veterinarian.
Call 446-3500 for further information.
Safe Haven from Domestic Violence
BHA and Domestic and Sexual Violence Services of Carbon County (DSVS) have collaborated to provide survivors of violence the ability to escape from their abusers with their pet(s) through the Safe Haven program. BHA has made arrangements with confidential foster homes to temporarily care for these pets while the survivor makes new living arrangements. In many instances, survivors of abuse refuse to leave their abusers for fear of retribution against their pets. Safe Haven offers peace of mind to the survivor while he/she seeks safety.
If you know anyone that may benefit from this service or for more information, please call DSVS at 406-446-2296 or BHA at 406-446-3500.
The Beartooth Human Alliance provides free hay for horse owners who are experiencing financial hardships. The hay is at no cost to qualified recipients for 30 days. It is not intended to be relied upon for an ongoing basis. A qualifying financial hardship for crisis includes, but is not limited to, job loss, medical bills or other hardships. Applicants need to have not only a genuine financial need for assistance, but they also need to devise a plan for how they will get back on their feet and provide for their horses once the 30 days of assistance has ended. To obtain a Hay Bank Application visit http://www.beartoothhuman.org or call 446-3500.
Low Cost Spay/Neuter Vouchers Available
The Beartooth Humane Alliance provides vouchers to qualified Carbon County residents for low-cost spay-neuter services for dogs and cats. The program aims to help reduce pet overpopulation by providing pet sterilization services to county residents who cannot afford the procedure for their pets, such as families with limited incomes, senior citizens on fixed incomes, and hardship situations.
The vouchers will be honored at Grizzly Peak Animal Hospital (Red Lodge), Bridger Veterinary Clinic (Bridger), and Red Lodge Veterinary Clinic (Red Lodge) beginning January 1 until available funding is exhausted. Residents will make a co-payment of $5 for a male cat, $29 for a female cat, $35 for a male dog weighing less than 100 lbs, $50 for a male dog weighing 100 lbs or more, and $47 – $59 for a female dog (depending on the dog’s weight). The vouchers are for pets — no feral cats, please. One voucher per household allowed.
If you are in a low-income situation and wish to have your pet sterilized, you can obtain a voucher application by calling 406-446-3500 or by filling out the application found at http://www.beartoothhumane.org and mailing it with your co-payment to BHA. When your application is approved, BHA will mail you a voucher with program details.
