The Maryland state legislature has created a fund that will award up to $1 million in grants each year to spay or neuter dogs and cats. If you’re part of an organization that spays and neuters cats, you could receive a grant from Maryland to help further your work. Feral cats are explicitly included, allowing organizations to expand TNR efforts.

Thanks to everyone who contacted their representative in favor of a statewide spay/neuter bill this past spring. This exciting initiative will help save the lives of Maryland cats through supporting spay/neuter efforts including Trap-Neuter-Return!

The application period has begun, and the deadline to apply is 5:00 p.m. on August 6, 2014. Apply now!
