Spay and Neuter Grants Program

pets 

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 in turn promote and provide free spay and neuter services to pets of low income Marylanders and to colonies of feral cats.  

Note to Pet Owners:

Individual citizens seeking spay/neuter for their pets do not apply to this program directly but are assisted by the organizations we fund

Please see the list of funded 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.
