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 surrendered and euthanized in shelters across the state. We hope to reduce these numbers by providing competitive grants to local governments and non-profit animal welfare organizations who will then provide free spay and neuter services to pet dogs and cats of low income Marylanders and to colonies of feral cats.
