Spay and Neuter Grants Program


Welcome to Maryland's Spay and Neuter Grants Program. 

This program is designed to reduce the number of unwanted cats and dogs euthanized in shelters across the state. We hope to reduce these numbers by providing competitive grants to local governments and animal welfare organizations that promote and provide spay and neuter services and educational outreach, emphasizing efforts that serve low income communities and populations. 

This is a grant program for providing funds to government departments and non-profit organizations who in turn provide no cost spay/neuter services to Maryland pet owners.  

Individual citizens seeking spay/neuter for their pets do not apply to this program. However, we have funded a variety of projects that may be able to help.  Check the LINK to your left "Funded Projects Currently Providing Free Spay/Neuter Services" and see if one of these projects can help.

9,728 Spay/Neuter Procedures Completed
By Our Projects To Date

 Our 2016 Request for Proposals (RFP) resulted in 36 applications with a combined request of over 1.5 million dollars. Of these applications, 18 were for pet-focused projects, 13 were for feral cat-focused projects, and 5 were for capital expense/equipment requests.  Our Advisory will soon complete their review and make reccomendations to the Secretary. 

Our thanks to all the great organizations and departments that worked hard to formulate great project ideas and it is our goal to fund as many of the best submissions as possible. 

If you didn't submit an application this time, consider a submission in our next cycle coming in 2017!
