Welcome to Maryland's Spay and Neuter Grants Program!
This program is designed to reduce the number of cats and dogs surrendered to and euthanized in shelters across the state. We hope to reduce these numbers by providing
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 for colonies of feral/community cats.

October 1, 2021: Congratulations to the 35 projects selected as recipients in the FY22 grant cycle!
On April 9, 2021 the FY22 grant application period closed after receiving 36 applications to provide spay and neuter services to dogs and cats across Maryland. After careful review, the Spay and Neuter Advisory Board met on August 11, 2021 to discuss the applications, and selected 35 of those programs to be fully or partially funded. These 35 projects will target another 14,446 spay and neuter surgeries for pets of low income families and feral cats. Projects are set to start in fall of 2021 through spring of 2022, and be active until the end of 2022.
