HELP! FIX ME Maine's Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program
You can have your cat fixed for $10, and your dog fixed for $20. Let us help you fix your cat or dog. There aren't enough homes for all of them. If you can't afford to fix your cat or dog, call 1-800-367-1317 or (207) 287-7621. You may be eligible for the state's low-cost spay/neuter program, if you receive or are eligible for one of the following programs: Food Stamps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Social Security Disability (SSD), and/or Maine Care (Medicaid).

GAHS Spay Incentive Certificate
In an effort to cut down on the number of people who continually bring in litters of puppies or kittens from the same mothers, the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society offers spaying assistance for these moms. The owner of the mother is issued an Incentive Certificate to be used at an area veterinarian. Dogs are given a certificate for $125.00 and cats a certificate for $75.00.

Neutering Discount Assistance
The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society has funds available to offer neutering assistance to families in financial need. $25.00 for dogs and $25.00 for cats. We do have certificates available now and can be used at area veterinarians. Please call or drop by the shelter to see if you qualify.

Prevent a Litter (The PAL Fund)

To help reduce the number of pets being surrendered to shelters, the SPCA encourages spaying or neutering of companion animals to help with overpopulation. Spaying or neutering will not only prevent unwanted litters, it will also help your pet live a healthier and longer life. The SPCA has developed the PAL (Prevent a Litter) Fund to assist area residents who would like to have their companion animals spayed or neutered but cannot afford the full-cost. While we cannot pay the entire fee for an animal to be neutered, the guardian/owner is only responsible for one-third of the final cost - the SPCA pays one-third with the participating veterinary practice covering the remaining third. We also ask that a condition of receiving a certificate that you volunteer some time at the shelter.
