Quarterly Shelter Statistics Reporting
Chapters 561 and 562 of 2013 - Animal Welfare - Spay/Neuter Fund - Establisment established a fee on dog and cat commercial feed registered in the State and created a Spay/Neuter Fund in MDA to reduce animal shelter overpopulation and cat and dog euthanasia rates by financing grants for programs that facilitate and promote spay and neuter services. Animal shelters operated or contracted by local governments must submit a quarterly report to MDA providing specific information.
In addition, any shelter that receives grant funding may be required per their grant agreement to provide the same data.
This data is used to determine program effectiveness in reducing shelter intakes and euthanasia rates, and to help identify areas of need for allocating grant funding.
