Roughly how many stray/feral cats are living and being fed in your neighborhood?*
LAWS is concerned about injuries and health risks to which you, and our volunteers if you need help, may be exposed when setting and checking traps. or looking for kittens. Please describe the location, whether it is necessary to crawl under houses or trailers, whether there are other wildlife living close by.*
Are there neighbors close to where you will be trapping?
Do the neighbors understand TNR and are they okay with what you/we will be doing? If not, are you willing to chat with them about it?*
Have you used live traps before, and if so, how much?*
Please indicate how much trapping you want to do: occasionally near your home; regularly in your neighborhood; anywhere needed.*
Please indicate which of the cooperating veterinary clinics is easier for you to use: Animal Health Center or Gem City Veterinary Service?*
Once you start TNRing cats, LAWS asks that you pay a portion of the cost of the vaccinations, surgery and health check. Normally that is $30.00 per cat until you have taken in 10 cats; then it drops to $20/cat. Other arrangements may be made, if you email LAWS and ask to discuss. Are you able/willing to help LAWS with the cost of TNRing the cat(s)?*
I understand that trapping feral cats in live traps carries considerable risk of injury, either from the cats themselves or from objects, conditions, substances in the environment, or from wildlife residing in the area. I hereby indemnify and hold harmless the organization Laramie Animal Welfare Society (LAWS), a Wyoming corporation, and its directors and other volunteers, from any injury or illness I suffer during my trapping activities, unless the directors or volunteers of LAWS are guilty of gross negligence in the information they provide. Further, I certify that the information in the answers I give in this application are correct insofar as I know of my own knowledge or information received from other sources. I also certify that I am 18 years of age or older and undertake this activity of my own choice and free will. My checking of the "yes" box associated with this statement serves as my electronic signature.
Note, answers other than "yes" will disqualify the applicant from participating in the LAWS TNR program.
