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.

21,256 Spay/Neuter Procedures Completed
By Our Projects To Date

 2017 Request For Proposals Released and 39 Applications Were Submitted.
 
We are pleased to announce that 39 applications were submitted for FY18 funding.   There were 22 pet-focused applications and 17 feral cat-focused applications, with a combined request of $1,296,312.63. 

Now the Deptartment and the Advisory Board will begin the careful review of each submission, leading to our formal review meetings later this summer.

Thank you all for your hard work on these applications.  We look forward to reading them!

If you did not submit this time, there will be another chance in early 2018.  It's never too early to start thinking of project ideas.  And as always, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

Cheers~

Jane Mallory, Program Coordinator​​​​
