Mission: We reduce the animal population and reduce the risk of disease on the reservation by removing abused, neglected and unwanted animals from the reservation. We get them to the safety of our foster homes, then transport them to rescue groups outside of the reservation for rehoming. We also provide free spay/neuter clinics for animals remaining on the reservation.
Results: We began in Nov 2010. We have removed 2400 animals and spayed/neutered 1400.
Target demographics: the animals and the community
Direct beneficiaries per year: 300 animals removed, 120 spayed/neutered and vaccinated.
Geographic areas served: We improve the lives of animals on the Lake Traverse Reservation
Programs: removing abused, neglected and unwanted animals, and sending them to foster based rescue groups for rehoming, and providing free spay/neuter and vaccination clinics for animals remaining on the reservation.
The Lake Traverse Animal Rezcue has made a huge difference in the lives of animals on the reservation. They remove abused, neglected and unwanted animals from the reservation, and transport them to rescue partners for rehoming. For animals that have great homes on the reservation, LTAR provides free spay/neuter and vaccination clinics. To date, over 1600 animals have been spayed and neutered, this has dramatically reduced the amount of animals having unwanted litters. It also helps make the community safer, because altered animals are less likely to bite people.
