Congratulations to Every Volunteer and Every Person that has contributed to Kootenai Pets for Life in 2017. At the Chamber of Commerce Banquet KPFL was awarded Non-Profit of the Year

Pictured above are some of the hard working volunteers taking a little time off to celebrate!!

We would like to construct a small area behind the shelter where the general public would not go receive animals that have been traumatized before they arrive. They may have been abandoned on a country road and left to fend for themselves. They may have had a long time human taking care of them who has died and they don’t understand what happened to that person. Oftentimes they are very young mothers with their first litter and they have no idea what to do. Each animal would have a small area – larger than a cage – where they would live privately until they healed from their trauma.

We are asking you to help us build this area. A small donation from many people would get us to our goal. If you would like to help, please send whatever you can afford to KPFL at P.O. Box 1454, Libby, MT

Cats like Lady, a 14 year-old gray tabby whose owner passed away, are traumatized when they first come in and need a private place to adjust. A place away from the noise and smells of others, a place to call their own until they come to terms with the changes in their life. The rooms will also be used for new Moms who have kittens to care for, or abandoned kittens, like the thirty brought to us last year, who need space to play. Elderly cats in need of rest, sick cats in need of treatment Ð the use for the rooms far exceeds the space to list the necessity.

Spay & Neuter - We began our spay/neuter program in 2002. As of April 2018 we have facilitated the spay or neuter of 8,074 pets.

KOOTENAI PETS FOR LIFE ENCOURAGES EVERYONE TO TAKE THEIR PETS TO THEIR VETERINARIAN AND HAVE THEM SPAYED OR NEUTERED AND TO KEEP THE VACCINATIONS UP TO DATE.

If you are unable to do this, KPFL, with some financial assistance from the County is actively offering a spay/neuter program. If you need help to spay or neuter your pet call 293-kpfl(5735).

Ferel Cat Program - We have a feral cat program that has been funded by the Sands Foundation grant. An appointment can be made to bring in a feral cat for spay or neuter and vaccinations. The cat's ear will be clipped and the cat will be released back to the same area. Since 2011 through this program we have spayed or neutered over 745 feral or stray cats. For more details on this program call 293-kpfl(5735)
