Got Ferals? 
We operate the only Trap-Neuter-Return program in the county which address feral cat overpopulation.

Deming Animal Guardians is waiting for a new feral cat spay/neuter grant....
Do you know someone feeding feral cats? 
DAG will assist with the spay/neuter cost and rabies vaccination for feral cats that have caretakers willing to take them back and continue to feed them. The program is called TNR - trap/neuter/return. Deming Animal Guardians (DAG) has feral cat traps to loan out. Most of our callers do their own trapping and transportation, but occasionally someone needs help. For this reason, Feral cat volunteers are needed to assist with trapping cats, transporting to vet, and returning the cats to their caretakers. 
Call Robyn at 575-546-9711 for more information on getting coupons to spay/neuter or volunteering to help the feral kitties of Luna County, NM.
