2022 Spay Neuter Grant Program

Spay and Neuter for 120 Cats
The Humane Society of Somerset County, Inc. has received a grant from the Maryland Dept. of Agriculture (MDA) to cover the cost of spay and neuter cats for low-income households in Somerset County.

To perform this we have partnered with Spay Now Animal clinic in Grasonville MD.
The grant money covers the cost of the surgery and a rabies vaccination; required by law. Other services performed at the time of surgery are a brief exam, treatment for fleas, distemper vaccination, and medication if the cat should happen to need it. These services are not covered by the grant and we ask that a donation be made by the pet owner.

If you meet the requirements please give us a call at  410-651-2424 and leave a message and we will return your call.

Another Happy Ending

The Humane Society of Somerset County was able to assist in finding a lost ‘support cat’ in the Pocomoke City  area.   The cat named Patches, who is a gray and white American short hair, went missing after a Veteran’s doctor visit.  The family stopped at a park in Pocomoke and Patches somehow broke off his leash.  The family was frantic, as Patches provides support for a US Veteran.   One of the HSSC members, Bob Timberman, was determined to catch the cat for the family.  He set traps throughout the park and by the next day he had trapped the cat. It was great Joy for Bob to be able to returned Patches un harmed  to the owner.   Patches provides a calming affect for his owner, and is a valuable part of the Veterans family dynamic

The HSSC was glad to be able to provide assistance to a veteran.  The HSSC also provides low cost spay/neuter services to local families. They also help with adoptions of kittens and abandoned cats.  Monetary donations are always appreciated to help keep their services going, and they run on all volunteer services.  If you would like to donate or become a volunteer give them a call at 410-651-2424.
