[ARCHIVED] Maryland Department of Agriculture Offers Spay/Neuter Grant for Feral Cats in Capitol Heights

Prince George’s County Animal Services Facility and Adoption Center to provide spay/neuter and rabies vaccination services

Largo, MD - The Prince George’s County Animal Services Division (ASD) has received a grant from the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) to spay/neuter and vaccinate for rabies 240 feral cats in the Capitol Heights area (20743-zip code).  This grant will assist in ASD efforts to help humanely reduce feral cats’ overall numbers.  

Because this is a TNR project (Trap-Neuter-Return), the cats will be returned to the area where they were trapped after surgery. ASD is working in partnership with PG Cats (the TNR group that serves the Capitol Heights area), who will coordinate and trap feral cats. 

Anyone wishing to assist with TNR trapping efforts can e-mail for more information. The goal is to alter as many cats as possible in the next few months before the weather warms up and the cats start reproducing.  

In addition to the grant for the Capitol Heights area, humane traps are available for anyone to borrow at no cost for up to 14 days from the cat trap bank at the Prince George’s County Animal Services Facility and Adoption Center.  To borrow a trap, please contact ASD rescue coordinator LeAnn Parker at (301) 780-7200 or e-mail
