County, metro governments invited to apply for spay/neuter grants

Applications due by July 14

FRANKFORT (June 15, 2017) — The Kentucky Animal Control Advisory Board invites county and metro governments in Kentucky to apply for matching grants for spay and neuter activities for 2017.

Governments may partner with non-profit organizations to obtain the best use of resources. Funds are extremely limited, and $1,000 is the maximum that can be matched. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis, with priority given to applicants that provide the highest amount of matching dollars.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek out the best price possible for the average anticipated cost per alteration, as grant amounts will be based in part on those costs. Added consideration will be given to spay/neuter programs that are mandatory.

Spay/Neuter Kentucky Program
Kentucky Department of Agriculture

The majority of funds for the program come from the sale of spay/neuter license plates. The board encourages Kentucky motorists to buy the plate when they buy or renew their vehicle licenses so the program may continue. You also may donate online or by check.
