Spay / Neuter Program


The most humane solution to the overpopulation of cats is sterilization.

An unspayed female cat, her mate, and their offspring (producing 2 litters per year, average 2.8 kittens surviving per litter) can total:

1 year = 12 cat
2 years = 67 cats
3 years = 376 cats
4 years = 2,107 cats
5 years = 11,801 cats

and only 1 in 12 finds a home!

HHPR Spays and Neuters before adoption

HHPR enforces a spay/neuter policy by providing the surgery to all age-appropriate cats in our facility.  With each adoptable kitten, we provide a voucher that helps with the cost of the procedure and gives us a way to verify the procedure was completed. Our Spay/Neuter Fund assures that we have the money available to continue this practice.

Spay/Neuter Fund:  Our Spay/Neuter fund pays for the surgeries of HHPR cats.

Help Fix ME Program

The state of Maine has a fund to help low-income families with the cost to spay/neuter their dog or cat. There are limitations to the program and the funds are not available all year. It is important to check with them if you are in need.

“The goal of the program is to reduce shelter intakes and euthanasia. This is why the program is restricted to cats and pit bulls –these are the animals filling our shelters.”

You may be eligible for the State’s low cost spay/neuter program.

If you receive or are eligible for one of the following programs…
Food Stamps
Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Social Security Disability (SSD)
Maine Care (Medicaid)

You can have your cat fixed for $10, and your dog fixed for $20.
