Thank you for your interest in the Dog and Cat Sterilization Program 2024 Grant (DCSP 2024 Grant.) We are excited to announce that the 2024 DSCP Grant application period begins February 1, 2024 and closes March 2, 2024. Please join the newsletter for further notification by visiting: https://www.agr.georgia.gov/pets

The purpose of the Dog and Cat Sterilization Grant Program is to provide financial assistance with sterilization procedures. The Department hopes that grant funds will ease the burden of sterilization procedures and increase the number of dogs and cats sterilized in Georgia. It is further noted that the intent of the grant is to reduce the number of animals that are reproducing to reduce overpopulation pressures (not to subsidize the cost of adopting from shelters).

Please review this page prior to applying for the Georgia Department of Agriculture Dog and Cat Sterilization Program 2024 Grant.
