MDA Proposes Regulations to Guide State's New Spay and Neuter Program

In Other News


The Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) proposed regulations that will guide the operation of the new statewide Spay and Neuter Program, which is designed to reduce the number of cats and dogs euthanized in shelters across the state. The program will provide grants to nonprofit animal welfare organizations and local governments that promote and provide spay and neuter services, with preference given to those that target low income communities.

The regulations, which appear in March 21's Maryland Register, set the broad framework under which the program will operate. Grant guidelines and applications are expected to be completed this summer. The regulations were recommended by the Spay and Neuter Advisory Board whose members were appointed by Agriculture Secretary Buddy Hance late last year.

The proposed regulations can be read on the Maryland Register or on MDA's website .

Public comments on the proposed regulations will be accepted through April 21 and should be sent to Mark Powell, MDA Marketing Chief, 50 Harry S Truman Parkway, Annapolis, MD 21401. By phone: 410-841-5770, by fax: 410-841-5987; by email: .
