The goal of this event is to offer affordable spay/neuter services to cats and dogs in our community. This day is open to any Maine pet parent (no income qualifications).

Pre-registration is required. Please read below for qualifications.


  • Available for cats and dogs on this day only (if you need a spay/neuter for a rabbit or other small animal, please call us at (207)854-9771 to be added to our spay/neuter waitlist)
  • Animals must be no younger than 8-weeks and no older than 7-years

If you have a mom cat with an unexpected litter, the ARLGP will spay your mom cat at no charge and return her to you. We will keep the kittens, spay/neuter them, and find them adoptive homes in our community. If this program is of interest to you, please call us at (207)854-9771.
