Wheatland Electric Cooperative Inc. (WEC) announces that the Golden Belt Humane Society has been awarded a $1,000 grant from the WEC Sharing Success Fund to be used to help fund their trap-neuter-release (TNR) program.

The Golden Belt Humane Society’s TNR program has been a long time in the making. Funding challenges have prevented the program from achieving the desired impact to the local cat population. Through the TNR program, stray cats are captured, may be tested for feline aids and leukemia, spayed or neutered, ear tipped, and vaccinated for rabies. Healthy cats are then released back into the community. Removing sickly cats from colonies and vetting the healthy ones helps prevent the spread of diseases to the rest of the population and reduces health risks to humans. The program will also help stabilize the area cat population. Healthy cats are needed in the community to help control the rodent population.

The Golden Belt Humane Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to animal welfare, providing temporary housing and care to strays and unwanted pets. They provide proper nutrition, necessary medical care, pet microchipping, adoption, and animal control services. To find more information on their TNR program or how you can help, visit or call 620-792-4297.
