Prince George’s County Animal Management Division (AMD) is encouraging all residents with pets to have them spayed or neutered.
A grant from the Maryland Department of Agriculture has made it possible for AMD to offer low-income families and individuals free neuter and spay services for cats and dogs.
All pet owners residing in Prince George’s County can take advantage of this free service until 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 again 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.”
To be eligible for the free service, pet owners must reside in Prince George’s County and provide proof of rabies vaccination. Pets that have not be vaccinated against rabies 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,” Prince George’s County Department of the Environment Director, Adam Ortiz, said. “We are pleased to partner with the Maryland Department of Agriculture to provide this free resource to our County residents.”
