Altered Reality: Spaying and Neutering Saves Lives

Animal Shelter

Last year, Frederick County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center took in just under 4,000 animals. The reality is we couldn’t find homes for them all.

You can help us save pets’ lives! By spaying or neutering your pets, you’ll help reduce the number of homeless animals in our community. 

Thanks to a $17,950 grant from the Maryland Department of Agriculture Spay and Neuter Grants Program, Frederick County Animal Control can provide 169 vouchers to eligible Frederick County residents for use at participating veterinary clinics. This program allows for 45 male cats, 45 female cats, 42 female dogs and 37 male dogs to be altered.  The vouchers cover the cost of spay/neuter surgery and a rabies vaccination.

This program, which begins now, will run until all funds are used or until September 27, 2019. Altered Reality targets some of the areas within Frederick County from which FCAC receives the most unaltered animals. Residents who meet the criteria below and own cat or dog who hasn’t yet been “fixed” are eligible for an Altered Reality voucher.
