Today, the Prince George’s County Animal Management Division (AMD) announced they have received a grant from the Maryland Department of Agriculture to provide free spay/neuter services for pets belonging to low-income individuals and families residing in Prince George’s County. The free service, available for dogs and cats, will run from February 1, 2017 through December 1, 2017, or until grant funding is complete.
“By having your pet spayed or neutered, pet owners are taking an important first step in the fight against pet overpopulation,” says AMD Chief Rodney Taylor. “I encourage pet owners to take advantage of this free service as it is one of the most effective and humane ways to save animals lives.”
Pet owners must reside in Prince George’s County to be eligible for the free spaying or neutering program and should provide proof of rabies vaccination. Pets without proof of rabies vaccination will be inoculated free of charge.
“Pet families that participate in this program will aid our mission to reduce the number of homeless animals in and around our County,” says Adam Ortiz, Prince George’s County Department of the Environment Director. “We are pleased to partner with the Maryland Department of Agriculture to provide this free resource to our County residents.”
