Spay/Neuter Assistance

Here at the GAHS we recognize that affordable spay/neuter services are important to our community. Our goal is to offer a lower-cost option for pet owners in the towns we serve.

Currently, we do not have access to financial assistance programs such as the State of Maine’s Help Fix Me Program or the Cleo Fund. If these programs become available, there will be income guidelines to qualify and the GAHS will work with community members to navigate that process.

As we are caring for the animals in our shelter, we have limited spay/neuter appointments available for privately owned pets in need. Please complete the form below to be contacted for scheduling.

Our current pricing:

Cat Neuter $100

Cat Spay $125

Dog Neuter $175 – $225 (dependent on size)

Dog Spay $200 – $250 (dependent on size)

A current rabies vaccine is required for all pets in accordance with State of Maine law. If you are unable to provide documentation of a current vaccine, one will be provided at no additional cost. Other vaccines and microchips will be available at an additional cost. All pets receive a complimentary nail trim at time of surgery.

Ooops, We Had a Litter!  Spay Assistance for Your Mother Cat or Dog

To cut down on the number of unexpected litters of puppies or kittens, the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society will spay and provide vaccinations to the mother cat or dog at no cost when the kittens or puppies are surrendered to the shelter for rehoming.  At the time of a surrender, an appointment will be made for mom for an upcoming surgery day here at the GAHS.

To participate, please visit to complete the Animal Surrender Information form when they are six weeks old. A staff member will reach out to schedule them to come in after they are eight weeks old.

Questions? Please email us at for more information.

Please note: To qualify for any of the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society’s Spay/Neuter services you need to be a resident of one of these communities:  Auburn, Canton, Greene, Hebron, Leeds, Lewiston, Livermore, Minot, New Gloucester, Turner, Rumford, Wales.
