The Butte Spay and Neuter Task Force has certainly been hard at work, be it putting on one of their wildly popular spay and neuter clinics or raising the funds necessary to hold them.  We recently had a chance to chat with Carolyn Corneilius who tells us that the number of animals spayed and neutered here in Butte already this year has surpassed 2022's full total.  "We're already at 500," she told us happily adding that last year's entire total was only around 475.

What is the reason for the higher number?  Corneilius says that it is due in no small part to the $50 spay and neuter vouchers that they offer that are honored at all local veterinary hospitals. "It doesn't pay for everything, but it helps," she told us while adding that the clinics themselves are aimed towards lower-income pet owners who may not have the funds available to spay or neuter their pets.

Corneilius tells us that there is a need for volunteers in our community to work with the Task Force not only during spay and neuter clinics but during outside hours as well.  And, as always, cash donations are more than welcome.  If you can help with either, please get ahold of Judy at (406) 782-5110.

Another fun way to help the Spay and Neuter Task Force is to attend their Bingo Night fundraiser which is coming up October 21 at the Elks Lodge on Galena.  Doors open at 5pm and games start at 6pm.  "We're asking everybody to come up, play some bingo and have a good time," she said adding that there will be snacks available and a few surprises as well.

For details on Bingo Night or anything going on with the Butte Spay and Neuter Task Force, please call Judy at (406) 782-5110.
