When an elderly widow in Bridger, MT called Beartooth Humane Alliance to help with her out-of-control barn cat population, BHA called in the dynamic trapping duo of Bert (right) and Xander Kraft. Father and son were successful in trapping 20 barn cats and getting them to Nip & Tuck for a free spay or neuter on September 19. The Kraft’s “catch” was a part of the 141 cats brought to this most recent Nip & Tuck.
It is astounding when we count how many cats and dogs Operation Nip & Tuck has fixed since 2003. This free community service has ended the reproductive cycles of 4,336 animals over the last 13 years putting a stop to an unfathomable number of kitten and puppy litters before they were born. It takes many hands to bring pet overpopulation and homelessness under control. Our deepest gratitude goes to the following.
To our vets for their tireless efforts and for believing spay/neuter is the compassionate answer to overpopulation. Drs. Mark Francis, Becky Frank, and Marian Vanderschaff.
To our volunteers and staff for your dedication, hard work, infectious spirit, and warm smiles.
We greatly appreciates generous support received from STEPPING FORWARD FOUNDATION, Carbon County Commission, Red Lodge Pizza Company and Beartooth Hideaway Inn and Cabins making it financially possible to offer this important community service.
We are committed to continued efforts to control dog and cat populations in Carbon County. Thanks to the Carbon County community for helping us pursue our mission!
