How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Our primary impact will be to reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter by assisting care-givers in providing spay and neuter services that they would not otherwise be able to afford. To date, we have assisted caregivers in spaying and neutering almost 1,000 pets.

BIO

Donna Watson founded the Denver-based non-profit group, the Rocky Mountain Alley Cat Alliance, currently providing approximately 3000 spay and neuter surgeries annually. She has assisted numerous animal welfare groups, including Friends of the Twin City Animal Shelter, City of Angels Dog Rescue, and others. She has over twenty years of animal rescue experience, most of it focusing on spay and neuter assistance. Unpaid position.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Spaying and neutering is a critical component of keeping populations under control. People see a need to spay and neuter, but when the cost of performing a spay surgery on a female cat is can be as much as $150, people just can't afford to do it. We want to change that. They call us and we help."
