2023 Spay and Neuter grants available to county, metro governments in Kentucky
Applications due July 15
FRANKFORT (June 22, 2023) – The Kentucky Animal Control Advisory Board (KACAB) invites Kentucky county and metropolitan governments to apply for available grants to spay and neuter dogs and cats.
The board will award up to $1,500 to each government on a competitive basis. Grant applicants do not need to offer matching funds, however governments with matching funds that exceed the KACAB grant amount will be favored candidates.
Governments may partner with non-profit organizations to obtain the best use of resources. Applicants are encouraged to seek out the best price possible for the average anticipated cost per alteration. Grant amounts will be based in part on alteration costs. Favorable ranking will be given to mandatory spay/neuter programs.
Spay/neuter grant-candidates can learn more about this program and download the grant application at kyspayneuter.com.
Grant applications must be received by email no later than July 15. Please email all documents and required attachments to email@example.com. No faxed or applications sent via mail will be accepted.
The majority of funds for this program come from the sale of spay/neuter license plates. The board encourages Kentucky motorists to buy spay/neuter license plates when buying or renewing vehicle licenses to help fund this program. Donations are also received online or by check.
The Animal Control Advisory Board was established in 1998 by the Kentucky General Assembly. The duties of the board include making recommendations to the Kentucky agriculture commissioner relating to animal control issues, evaluating applications for disbursement of animal care and control funds, establishing shelter standards, and creating training programs. It is attached to the Kentucky Department of Agriculture for administrative purposes.
