Spay/Neuter Assistance

2021 Update: Due to a veterinarian retiring, we currently have very limited capacity for owned pet procedures including spay/neuter and vaccines. We can add you to a list to schedule as we have veterinary coverage, but there will be a wait time. Cat spay/neuter vouchers are still available. We thank you for your understanding.

The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society is committed to ending pet overpopulation in our state, region, country and beyond!  To do our part, we offer the following assistance programs for pet owners struggling to afford spay/neuter surgery for their pets.

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