FRANKFORT, KY (7 Jun 2016) -- The Kentucky Animal Control Advisory Board invites county and metro governments in Kentucky to apply for matching grants for spay and neuter activities for 2016.

Governments may partner with non-profit organizations to obtain the best use of resources. Funds are extremely limited, and $1,000 is the maximum that can be matched. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis, with favor shown to applicants that provide the highest amount of matching dollars.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek out the best price possible for the average anticipated cost per alteration, as grant amounts will be based in part on those costs. Favor will also be shown to spay/neuter programs that are mandatory.

Kentucky county or metro governments interested in applying for spay/neuter grants may download the application at Kyspayneuter

Applications must be received or postmarked by Friday, July 15. Email all documents and required attachments to or mail them to Spay/Neuter Kentucky Program, Kentucky Department of Agriculture, 500 Mero Street, Seventh Floor, Frankfort, KY 40601. Faxes will not be accepted.

The majority of funds for the program come from the sale of spay/neuter license plates. The board encourages Kentucky motorists to buy the plate when they buy or renew their vehicle licenses so the program may continue. You also may donate online or by check. For more information, go to
