The Lander Pet Connection, Inc. is a group of volunteers who rescue stray and abandoned pets within Lander, WY. Since the town of Lander has no animal shelter, we are the only rescue in our area.
Pets come to us from a variety of situations. Some of them have been given-up or abandoned by their owners. Some have been found wandering alone in remote areas, and some have actually been put into dumpsters and dumped at the local landfill. We make sure each pet gets a vet exam, applicable shots, spayed/neutered, and is well fed, loved and exercised. Our standard adoption fee is $85.00 for dogs and $35.00 for cats.
We perform a number of community assistance tasks also. We try to counsel pet owners on training tactics when they have behavioural issues, etc, with their pets. We work with veterinary clinics and other local groups, socializing the animals and publicizing them on our Facebook page, flyers and website.
We've also initiated a low cost spay/neuter program with the cooperation of local veterinarians. This program is limited to those in financial need due to funding, but it's a good start on coping with the pet over-population problem in Lander.
When we get "feed back" on the dogs that have been adopted, it makes it all worthwhile! We'd love to hear from you if you have feedback for us.
To find out what volunteer opportunties we have or to donate time, services, etc., please contact us either by calling 307-330-5200 or visit http://www.landerpets.org.
We are located at 120 Chittim Road in Lander and are open noon - 2:00 daily. We love to have visitors and volunteers to walk our dogs and play with our kitties!
