Spay/Neuter Assistance

Updated October 2023

Here at the GAHS we recognize that affordable spay/neuter services are important to our community, however we are unable to keep up with the demand.  We are not accepting new requests for our Spay/Neuter program at this time. 

We will be continuing to work through the requests received since we set up our online form in March. Once we have been able to accommodate the majority of those waiting, we will open the online form for further submissions.  Please check back on this page for the most up to date information.  

There are also two low-cost spay/neuter clinics nearby. You can contact:

The Community Spay Neuter Clinic in Topsham

The Maine Animal Health Alliance in Augusta

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.
